Newton fails to make the cut at Oscars

Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton, which was India’s official entry in the Foreign Language Film category at the 2018 Oscars, couldn’t make it to the final list of nominations.

Oscars released the list of nine features which have advanced to the next round of voting in the Foreign Language Film category. The nine films competing for the best foreign language film Oscar are:

  • Chile, A Fantastic Woman
  • Germany, In the Fade
  • Hungary, On Body and Soul
  • Israel, Foxtrot
  • Lebanon, The Insult
  • Russia, Loveless
  • Senegal, Félicité
  • South Africa, The Wound
  • Sweden, The Square

The nominations for Academy Awards 2018 will be announced on January 23, 2018, and the awards will take place on March 4, 2018 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Newton was chosen from among 26 titles from different languages by the Film Federation of India (FFI). This decision received a lot of criticism as some thought that Dangal was deserved to be sent to Oscars. It was also alleged that Newton was inspired by a 2001 Iranian movie titled Secret Ballot.

  1. Happy to see some 27yr old is trying to make some different movies unlike 54yr old buddha's still stuck in love stories.

    1. Some IQless,idiot, jealous fans say they have back up n others run away due to lack of facts.....

      Trying to satisfy themselves posting silly comments all the time....

      When [email protected] cr posted deep decade Analysis n exposed the so called top star then same ridiculous fans used to run away from the topic......N instead bashed other Superstar..

      Shame on jealous souls...

    1. American audiences would have had ZERO connect with Dangal. They wouldn't have been able to understand the "no girls" issue.

      1. @ gajendra yadav totally agreed with u on that statement that don’t give shit about on girls...

    2. Lol tu toh page chhodne ki taiyaari kr parshya aunty TZH release hone wali hai..waise excuses ready krle..first day kaa excuse dangal limited audience ko target kr rahi thi nd TZH masala movie hai iss liye zyada collection ki...2nd day kaa excuse dangal kaa overall collection tod k dikhaye nd after 3 weeks dangal kaa domestic record toh tod diya worldwide kaa tod k dikhaye ?? bag pack krle parshya aunty..??

    3. Dangal is good movie but not for OSCAR.
      OSCAR mein nominated movies ka level dekhega toh Dangal bundle movie lagegi.
      NEWTON is more realistic and has powerful script than Dangal.
      NEWTON doesn't have a fake plot like Dangal. Dangal mein real story mein changes karke use fake bana diya.

  2. This is our country

    DANGAL was a masterpiece but these jury members are against Aamir that's why we r not able to win oscars.

    Shame shame on these bakwas people

    1. Is it for real? And why would they do so?
      Don't you think it would've been a pride for the members to validate it? Don't know much about the system there but if what you are saying is true then its very saddening.

  3. bollyarena, why don't you replace my comment below whom for I reply .this creates confusion.

  4. Loveless is a movie to watch!! Excellent movie, deserves an Oscar definitely.
    Have not watched Newton so cannot say anything about it.

  5. Dangal was a good commercial movie.. but definitely not Oscar worthy. It is turning out to be a failure on tv during repeat runs.. that winds up..

  6. being a salman fan even i admit dangal was first choice and it could even win an oscar. Dissapointed.
