Foreign Language Films Compete For Golden Globe

by HFPA November 30, 2014

After careful examination, 53 motion pictures have been approved for Golden Globe consideration in the Foreign Language category. In order to qualify for foreign language consideration, a film must have at least 51% of its dialogue in a language other than
English, it must be released in its country or countries (in case of co-production) of origin between Nov. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2014, and it must have an official screening for HFPA voting members.

Documentaries do not qualify for the category and foreign language entries are not eligible
in the best musical or comedy or best drama categories. But the filmmakers – actors, directors, screenwriters and composers – can also compete in their respective categories.
The HFPA foreign language category rules allow American productions that are in languages other than English. The HFPA also does not limit each country to just one entry per year in the category.
