Additionally, global members (who live outside of the U.K.) will be invited to opt-in to stream the nine shortlisted films on the Academy's member site.

Nine films have been finalised for the Oscar nominations for Best Film In A Foreign Language, and Pakistan has not made the cut. The entire team of Amit Masurkar directorial was excited when the film became India's official entry to the 90th Academy Awards.

After announcing the shortlist, the nominees for all the categories, along with Best Foreign Language movies will be revealed on 23 January, 2018.

Angelina Jolie also failed to earn a nomination for her film "First They Killed My Father". The film, which stars Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi in key roles, detailed the foibles of holding a democratic election in a Maoist violence-hit village in Chhattisgarh.

The Academy has come under some skepticism regarding the Foreign Language movies, because of the number of films from every nation that are submitted and only five are the ones to get nominated in the end.
