International Oscar Showdown 2003 — Chicago vs Nowhere In Africa

The 2003 International Oscar Showdown features Chicago versus Nowhere In Africa
The 75th Academy Awards winners for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film were Chicago and Nowhere In Africa

Bong Joon Ho’s movie Parasite made history at the 2020 Academy Awards, becoming the first non-English-language film to win Best Picture.

In this series, in reverse chronological order, I compare previous years’ Best Picture and Best International Feature to see how many other foreign-language films ought to have been given the top gong.
