International Oscar Showdown 2006 — Crash vs Tsotsi

The 78th Academy Awards winners for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film were Crash and Tsotsi

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.
