Singapore film disqualified for Oscar nomination

Vanity and hubris, a bad combination.

The film "Be With Me" from Singapore director Eric Khoo was disqualified earlier because the predominant language is English, Teni Melidonian, spokesman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, told AFP. The film was entered in the foreign language category but "English isn't a foreign language" for the Oscars, Melidonian said.
