International Oscar Showdown 2011 — The King’s Speech vs In A Better World

The 83rd Academy Awards winners for Best Picture and Best International Feature Film were The King’s Speech and In A Better World

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.
