Good news for India as many national films make it to the qualifiers list of Oscars 2023. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences cast a list of 301 feature films suitable for this year’s Oscars. Besides India’s official entry, other films have made it to the cut ‘RRR’, ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, ‘The Kashmir Files’, and ‘Kantara’. India’s official entry, Pan Nalin’s ‘Chhello Show’(Last Film Show), is on the coveted list.
Expressing his excitement at The Kashmir Files making it to the list, director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri tweeted, “#TheKashmirFiles has been shortlisted for #Oscars2023 in the first list of @TheAcademy It’s one of the 5 films from India. I wish all of them the very best. A great year for Indian cinema.”
Other Indian films include Marathi films ‘Me Vasantrao’ and ‘Tujhya Sathi Kahi Hi,’ R Madhavan’s ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect,’ ‘Iravin Nizhal’ and Kannada movie ‘Vikrant Rona.’ Documentaries ‘All That Breathes’ by Shaunak Sen and Kartiki Gonsalves’ ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ are even part of the list.
For the unversed, these movies have only qualified for the Oscars and will not necessarily make it to the official nominations list. On January 24, 2023, the Oscars nominations list will come out.
This year, The Academy has raised the number of qualified movies. In 2021, the eligible number of films was 276, but in 2020, the number was 366. All usual contenders are listed on the Academy’s annual Reminder List of Productions Eligible for the 95th Academy Awards, including the entertainers qualified for reflection in the acting types.
Oscars will reveal the final nominations list on January 24 as 9,579 qualified voting members will start filling out their ballots. On March 12, the Oscar ceremony will air from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
