'Black Bread' to Represent Spain in Bid for Oscar
Almodovar is passed over once again by the Spanish Film Academy.
MADRID - Agusti Villaronga's Black Bread has been selected as Spain's bid for an foreign-language Oscar, the Spanish Film Academy announced Wednesday.
The coming-of-age tale beat out Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In and Benito Zambrano's The Sleeping Voice , which had been short-listed two weeks ago for the chance to represent Spain in the run up to the Oscars.
Bread, which will be the first Catalan-language film nominated by Spain, not only landed nine Goya awards earlier this year, but helped Villaronga secure the National Cinematographer's Prize from the Culture Ministry just days ago at the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
