If anything can turn a film into an instant classic, it’s the Academy Award. This year, the big winner is No Country for Old Men which won for best film, director, supporting actor and adapted screenplay. But the Oscars this year also suggested that what’s destined to be classic can also have an international flair. Other top honors went to talent from abroad: Spain’s Javier Bardem, France’s Marion Cotillard, and Britain’s Daniel Day-Lewis and Tilda Swinton.
