‘Decision to break up’ fails to be shortlisted for Oscars

Director Park Chan-wook’s film ‘Decision to Break Up’ (poster) failed to make it to the final nominations for the International Feature Film category at the American Academy Awards (Oscars).

On the 24th (local time), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announced the final list of nominees for the 95th Oscars through a live online broadcast. ‘Decision to Break Up’ was included in the preliminary list of 15 shortlisted films in the international feature film category, but was not included in the final shortlist. Five films are nominated for the International Feature Film Award: ‘Argentina, 1985’ (Argentina), ‘Close’ (Belgium), ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ (Germany), ‘The Silent Girl’ (Ireland), and ‘EO’ (Poland). has been selected

Considering that ‘Decision to Break Up’ has been nominated or won awards at other awards ceremonies, it is a reaction that it is incomprehensible that it was not nominated for the Oscars. Previously on the 19th, ‘Decision to Break Up’ was nominated for two BAFTA awards, including Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe, one of the two major American film awards, and the Critic’s Choice, the American critics’ choice film award, for Best Non-English Film and Best Foreign Language Film, respectively. In May of last year, it won the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Associated Press reported, “One of the biggest surprises this year was that director Park’s romantic noir ‘Decision to Break Up’, which was acclaimed, was excluded (from the nominations),” and Variety said, “At least ‘Decision to Break Up’ is nominated for the International Feature Film Award. It seemed clear, and director Park was also mentioned as a surprise candidate for the Best Director award.”
