The success of European cinema at the Oscars

With four Oscars, European cinema emerged victorious from the Academy Awards ceremony, writes Uros Smasek. But he adds that many of the films were European-American co-productions. "The only real winner was 'The Counterfeiters,' by Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky, which competed for best foreign language film against Israel, Kazakhstan, Poland and Russia. … But it is outrageous that the new Romanian film by Cristian Mungiu, '4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days,' which received the top prize at Cannes, never even made it into consideration for an Oscar. ... Perhaps that is due to its extremely realistic presentation of the problematic issue of abortion. If the Romanian film had been nominated, the European triumph at the Oscars would be much easier to celebrate."
