I'll go ahead and remove Murmur of the Heart from my Orig. Screenplay list and I won't replace it since I didn't really have a choice left there anyway.

Limelight is ineligible - we're counting it as 1952 when it was released everywhere except in L.A.

The New Land is Ok.
As for Limelight, I´m going to replace it with Fellini´s Roma.

I agree with OG; my wish is that this be as reflective of the global cinematic arts as possible, especially considering we have so many members from around the world on the board (most of the participants in this game are in the US, though we do have Greece, Pakistan and Argentina represented; maybe we can convince our members from Italy, Finland, Israel, The Philippines, Australia, etc., to join the game...).

Among the eligible original screenplays are The Discreet Charm of the Bourgoisie, Fellini's Roma, The Candidate, The Culpepper Cattle Company, Junior Bonner, J.W. Coop, The King of Marvin Gardens, Lady Sings the Blues, Young Winston, Avanti!, Heat and Images.

Then tell me why it was nominated for the Academy Award in 1972?

Because it was released in L.A. a year after it was released in the rest of the world, including New York.

I say no foreign language film. It sends the message that only American-made films deserve separate recognition...and if they are eligible in Best Picture, there's no reason for a Foreign Language Film category.
