« Blue Is the Warmest Color, » « The Lunchbox » and « Like Father, Like Son » are among the acclaimed films eligible for the Globes – but not the Academy Awards

The Golden Globes’ category for Best Foreign Language Film could sport an eye-catching slate of nominees this year, according to the list of eligible entries obtained by TheWrap: the Cannes Palme d’Or winner « Blue Is the Warmest Color » and Jury Prize winner « Like Father, Like Son »; India’s beloved « The Lunchbox »; master animator Hayao Miyazaki’s swan song « The Wind Rises »; Pedro Almodovar’s « I’m So Excited »; the top-grossing Mexican film « Instructions Are Not Included »; and even the martial arts epic directed by Keanu Reeves, « Man of Tai Chi. »

Those films have one thing in common: They’re not eligible for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

While the Oscars hold fast to a one-country, one-film rule for now, credentialing a submitting body in each country to make the decision, the Globes’ rules allow for multiple submissions from individual countries. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association accepts any predominantly non-English film released in its country of origin between November 2012 and December 2013, provided it officially screens for the HFPA membership.

A record 76 films qualified for the Oscars, while 58 are in the running for the Globes.
