As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Disqualify foreign movie from Best International Feature Film category cuz they used too much English, which is their official language.

Lionheart, in which Nnaji also stars, is partially in the Igbo language of Nigeria. But it is mostly in English, which violates an Academy rule that entries in the category must have “a predominantly non-English dialogue track.”

The film had not been vetted by the Academy’s International Feature Film Award Executive Committee in advance of the Oct. 7 announcement of qualifying films but was recently viewed and determined not to qualify in a category that until this year was known as Best Foreign Language Film.

The category used to be Best Foreign Language Film, but apparently they haven't updated the rules to reflect the new category name.

It's on the "To Do" list after "find a host".
