Czech Republic swaps entry for Oscar consideration

The Academy has vetted the list of submissions for Best Foreign Language Film and found a couple of titles that it deems ineligible. Variety reports:

The most notable rejection was director Agnieszka Holland’s “Burning Bush,” which was submitted by the Czech Republic but disallowed because it was made for and premiered on HBO Europe.

The Czech Republic was allowed to submit a replacement film, “The Don Juans.”
