Watch 'Force Majeure' Director Break Down After Not Receiving Oscar Nomination

Ruben Ostlund is not pleased when he finds out that his movie won't be up for an Academy Award for foreign-language film.

When Sweden's Force Majeure did not receive an Academy Award nomination for best foreign-language film, director Ruben Ostlund and producer Erik Hemmendorff captured their disappointment on video.

In the clip, Ostlund and Hemmendorff anxiously await the announcement of all the Oscar nominations from a New York City hotel. When their film is not announced, cursing and man-crying ensues.

Outlets are speculating that the video was staged and is actually a prank made by the Force Majeure team. The movie went on to win the best foreign-language film award at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday night.
