2023 Academy Awards

At this year's 95th Academy Awards, All Quiet on the Western Front had nine nominations for an Oscar.  The 2022 German film, Im Westen nights Neues, cost $20 million dollars to make but it wasn't made in Germany.

It was filmed in 2021 in Czechland.  All of the movie's extras, stunt people and technical crew were all Czech.  Their hard work paid off because it won the Oscar for Best International Feature Film.

Four Czechs received nominations but unfortunately none of them won.  However, what an honour to be nominated for an Oscar.

Linda Eisenhamerová - Best Makeup and Hairstyling

Viktor Prášil - Best Sound

Kamil Jafar and Viktor Müller - Best Visual Effects

Here's the film's trailer.


The first Czech (/Slovak) film ever to win an Oscar was Obchod na korze, (The Shop on Main Street).  The 1965 film won Best Foreign Film for Czechoslovakia.  I haven't seen the film yet but I think I need to be on the look out for it.  

Here's the film's trailer that I found out on YouTube.
