Cannes director Thierry Frémaux exposes himself on the Academy Awards

The Delegate General of Cannes Film Festival, Thierry Fremauxintervened on the recent ones Oscars 2023 in view of the 76th Cannes Film Festivalscheduled on the Croisette

«I thought the ceremony was very good and was happy to see Michelle Yeoh awarded. And disappointed that Steven Spielberg wasn’t, because his film is a love letter to cinema – Frémaux told Variety – I don’t even understand why (the winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2022, ed) Triangle of Sadness can’t compete for an Oscar for best international film, even if it’s in English. How can a non-American film win the Oscar for best picture when it is a ceremony in honor of American cinema? Parasite won, that’s great, but it’s a Korean movie».

Academy rules state that an international feature film must “be predominantly (more than 50%) in one or more languages ​​other than English“, while much of Triangle of Sadness (despite being an EU/UK co-production) is acted in English (Sweden sent a candidate indeed Boy from Heaven by Tarik Saleh, also presented in Competition at the last Cannes Film Festival, which however did not enter the five).
