Oscars have record 71 foreign-language submissions
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Academy Awards organizers have received submissions from a record 71 countries for this season's foreign-language prize.
The entries include Austria's "Amour" from director Michael Haneke, which won the top prize at last May's Cannes Film Festival. The film stars Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant as an elderly couple coping with the wife's worsening health.
The Oscar submissions also feature director David "Tosh" Gitonga's "Nairobi Half Life." It's the first entry ever from Kenya.
Other foreign-language entries include the French hit "The Intouchables," from directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, and Sweden's "The Hypnotist," from Lasse Hallstrom, who also directed "The Cider House Rules."
Another entry is Norway's "Kon-Tiki" from directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. It chronicles Thor Heyerdahl's Pacific Ocean expedition to prove that South Americans could have settled Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.
