OTTAWA, Jan. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - I was pleased to learn that, for the third consecutive year, a Canadian film has been nominated for the Oscar for best foreign-language film—Rebelle (War Witch), directed by Kim Nguyen and produced by Pierre Even and Marie-Claude Poulin. Canadians can be proud as artists from our country distinguish themselves on the world stage and strengthen our reputation for cinematic excellence.
I would like to congratulate all the Canadians who are also on the official list of nominees:
Best Original Score:
Short Film Live Action:
I would also like to applaud Doug James, a Canadian software developer who is one of the first Academy Award winners of the year. With his three colleagues, Nils Thuerey, Theodore Kim and Markus Gross, he won a Technical Achievement Award for developing the Wavelet Turbulence software.
On behalf of the Government of Canada and of all Canadians, I wish the nominees the best of luck at the upcoming 85th Academy Awards ceremony on February 24.
