Academy Awards (Oscar) winners for Best Foreign Language Film

What do you know about Academy Awards? The AMPAS' (Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) world-class movie awarding nicknamed "Oscar" has been for decades the most wanted event in cinema world. The awards are given to many categories. You must know the winning actors, actresses, films, or directors. They are famous people whom millions of fans familiar with. Here, I would like to remind you to one of interesting classifications of the Awards, the Best Foreign Language Film. The "foreign language" phrase refers to any movie presented in language other than English.

None of the previous editions of the Academy Awards listed this category until 1947, when the committee held Special/Honorary Awards to the best foreign language films released in the United States. In the 29th Academy Awards, this categorization was held as Academy Award of Merit, or the Best Foreign Language Film Award.
