IIRC to even qualify for an Oscar, your movie has to have a theatrical run in at least one Los Angeles County theater for a period of time. They're just incredibly incompetent. Just the type of racism that I expect to see in some academy voters. We need to get into the habit of naming and shaming these fucks. The Oscars and its voters are trash, this is nothing new. It's not that the whole academy is a trash institution, it's that the voter list isn't particularly exclusive outside simply being in the industry.

Is it a production outside of the US or based on language? They're just incredibly incompetent. Well, is that really that surprising of an attitude considering there has been 3 foreign language films in the best picture category in the last 10 years. The criteria to be a voter is actually way less stringent than it seems.
