Cambodia's French-language documentary "The Missing Picture," which uses clay figurines to tell the story of the bloody reign of the Khmer Rouge, made the list of Oscars foreign-language nominations. It's the country's first film to score an Oscar nomination.

Director Hany Abu-Assad, whose 2005 film "Paradise Now" earned Palestine's only Oscar foreign-language nomination, also made the list with thriller "Omar".

Italy's "The Great Beauty" is the latest nomination for the country which has won a record 13 best foreign picture Oscars.

Danish drama "The Hunt" starring Mads Mikkelsen also made the list.

Belgium's "The Broken Circle Breakdown", directed by Felix Van Groeningen, is based on the stage play of the same name by Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels. The film follows a couple in Ghent, Belgium, whose love for bluegrass music unites them over their seven-year relationship.
