I couldn’t be bothered yesterday to mention the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Best Foreign Language Film award short list. Couldn’t get to it today either. But of the nine films chosen (Days of Glory, Water, After the Wedding, Avenue Montaigne, The Lives of Others, Pan’s Labyrinth, Black Book, Volver and Vitus), the final five have to include The Lives of Others, Pan’s Labyrinth and Volver, right? That leaves room for two other finalists. They’ll be announced on 1.23.07 along with everything and everyone else.
