"The Milkmaid" Loses Out In Oscars Best International Film, See African Movies that Made It

Nollywood Movie, Milkmaid Loses Out As The Oscars Releases Shortlist

Nigeria has missed a chance of landing an Oscar win after the Academy Awards released the shortlist of its International Feature Film.

The movie which talks about invasion and violence was released in 2020, becoming an instant hit and a Box Office giant.

Nigeria submitted the critically acclaimed movie, "The Milkmaid" to the Oscar's board for evaluation. However, it's been confirmed that Nollywood movie didn't make the cut, and wont be participating alongside other feature films in the 93rd Academy Awards.

The International Film Feature Category is an award category that celebrates movies outside the United States, mainly movies scripted in non-English. This made it possible for Nigeria to submit "The Milkmaid" after it was confirmed that it satisfied all requirements.

The Oscars released the shortlist that contained 15 movies from Chile, Tunisia, Ivory coast, Iran, Mexico, Romania, and Norway.
