Oscars 2013: 'Amour' wins Best Foreign Language Film, could it also take Best Picture?
No other film has ever pulled out such a double win
Against a strong field of fellow Foreign Language Film nominees, Michael Haneke's "Amour" just won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for the country of Austria. Yup, that's right - that Oscar is not considered to be won by a specific individual, and while it is accepted by the winning film's director, it is an award for the entire country that submitted the film. Haneke's deeply-felt tale of an aging couple come to terms with the end of their lives has been a favorite of critics during this awards season, and its win was almost assured from the moment it was nominated.
