Oscar glory beckons for the Ajami crew!

Tonight it’s Oscar night and Israel interest in the annual movie extravaganza is high, as this is the third consecutive year that an Israeli movie is in line for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. This years’ candidate, Ajami, looks like it could be in with a shout, though some movie critics are less than optimistic (the German candidate “The White Ribbon” looks like the odds-on favorite)…

Some of the crew are in Los Angeles for the ceremony itself, including directors Scandar Copti and Yaron Shani, while others will be at a special live screening in L.A., set up by the Israeli consulate.

It might not be the favorite to scoop an Oscar, but Ajami is one of those movies that touches on the Arab-Israeli conflict, albeit in an atypical way. Perhaps the emotions portrayed in the movie (by non-professional actors it should be noted), will be enough to sway those that need to decide…

Good luck guys! And third time lucky!
