The major film awards season may be over in the United States but it is still ongoing in other countries. The list of potential foreign film nominees for the 2013 Accademia del Cinema Italiano Premi David di Donatello (The Academy of Italian Cinema David di Donatello Awards) also known as the Italian Oscars, was released.
SWATH is one of the foreign films that could receive a nomination. The odds are against SWATH receiving a nomination going up against such heavy hitters as Lincoln, Argo and Les Miserables not to mention films from other countries.
It is no surprise that SWATH would make an impression in Italy since it led a strong Italian box office for three weeks straight beating out the 3D blockbuster Spiderman in the process making a total of $11,357,199 (Box Office Mojo).
Also included was Kristen Stewart's On the Road and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 as well as Chris Hemsworth's The Avengers and Charlize Theron's Prometheus.
Universal has nominees including the hit R-rated comedy Ted. See the full list of foreign film potentials list here.
Last year's Best Foreign Film nominees and winner were:
A Separation: Asghar Farhadi (Director)
The Ides of March
The Tree of Life
