STOCKHOLM, Sweden — The Swedish Film Institute nominated “Anglagard,” or “Angel Manor,” for the Best Foreign Film Oscar to replace “The Best Intentions,” which was declared ineligible last week.
The institute made the nomination yesterday after the Motion Picture Academy in Los Angeles rejected “The Best Intentions” because it appeared on Swedish television as a series before being released as a feature film in other countries.
The Academy said that violated the rules for entries.
Anglagard is about a city girl who inherits a manor house in a traditional Swedish village. It was directed by Colin Nutley, a Briton who has made several films in Sweden.
