Again setting a record for most countries in participation, the official 67 country submissions for the 2009 Academy Awards have been announced, via IndieWire. The notables include Entre les murs (from France), 3 Monkeys (from Turkey), Everlasting Moments (from Sweden), My Magic (from Singapore), Salt of This Sea (from Palestine), O' Horten (from Norway), Tulpan (from Kazakhstan), Gomorra (from Italy), Waltz with Bashir (from Israel), Tony Manero (from Chile), Last Stop 174 (from Brazil), Eldorado (from Belgium) and Lion's Den (from Argentina). Of course, with this category's shitty track record, none of the above will get nominated, even as the Academy tries and tries to fix their shameful mistakes. You can read the full list here.
