The Oscars open up to include more countries

From the BBC:

Eighty-three countries have been invited to submit movies to vie for next year's foreign film Oscar.

They include the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan, who have received their first invites this year.

A recent rule change means that films entered for the award need no longer be in the country's official language.
