Right movie, wrong competition
Nigeria's first-ever Oscar submission for best international feature film has been disqualified by award organisers, sparking criticism from its director. Films in this category, formerly best foreign language film, must have "a predominantly non-English dialogue track". However, the minute film Lionheart is largely in English, with an minute section in the Igbo language. But some in Nigeria questioned why it had been submitted in the first place, given the clear rules around what films are eligible for the category. But English is the official language of Nigeria. Are you barring this country from ever competing for an Oscar in its official language? Ms Nnaji, who directed and starred in Lionheart, thanked Ms DuVernay for speaking out, saying the film "represents the way we speak as Nigerians".
