Argentine's "Carancho" has been selected as their nominated film for the best picture in foreign-language category. With only 20 votes over its two competitors ("The Man Next Door" and "Dos Hermanos"). The project came in just moments before the deadline for countries to submit their films for foreign-language nomination. The film is a crime-thriller that set against a love story involving an ambulance chasing lawyer. The first thing that comes to mind is the potential that lies before Ben Affelck's "The Town." Perhaps 2010 could be the year that the Academy recognizes Crime-Thrillers as a theme.
