69 foreign films enter Golden Globes derby

December 9, 2009 |  7:56 am

A record number of submissions has been made to the Golden Globes' race for best foreign-language film -- 69. Most interesting are the movies excluded from the Oscars' list because they weren't submitted by the home nations like "Broken Embraces" (Spain), "Coco Before Chanel" (France), "Lebanon" (Israel), "The Maid" (Chile) and "Thirst" (Korea) and "Vincere" (Italy). In the case of "The Maid," for example, it won kudos at the Sundance Film Festival and Gotham Awards and is nominated for best foreign film at the Indie Spirits. Globe nominations will be announced Tuesday morning.
