    For Your Consideration: 10 Things You Should Know About the 2013 Foreign Language Oscar Contenders

    It's pretty much an assured equation: Oscars + Foreign Language Film Category = Outrage.

    Last week this column took a look at the quickly tightening best actress race (in the wake of two drop outs via Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard), so it seemed appropriate to turn the table over to their male counterparts, especially since one of the main contenders in that arena also headed to 20...
