|A still from Go Away Mr Tumor Photo: CFP A few weeks ago William Nylander Leafs Jersey , when Wolf Totem, a Chinese film directed by French director Jean Jacque Annaud, was submitted for the Best Foreign Language Film in the 88th Academy Awards it sparked a great furor on the Chinese web. At the center of the heated debate was whether Wolf Totem, a Chinese language film based on Lu Jiamin's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, was more deserving of the award than Chinese director Jia Zhangke's film Mountains May Depart.
The argument now seems pointless as when the final list of submissions was released neither film made the cut. The two motion pictures lost out to Han Yan's Go Away Mr Tumor.
The news triggered shock waves on Chinese social networks. On one hand it's totally unexpected, even its director Han Yan has reportedly said that he had no idea until he read the news. On the other hand Auston Matthews Leafs Jersey , there are those that doubt whether Go Away Mr Tumor has enough mass appeal outside of China to properly compete for the prestigious award.
"I have no problems with the production team of Mr Tumor, actually we are familiar with each other. This is a good movie, but only in the Chinese market," Chinese director Gao Qunshu posted on his Sina Weibo account. He added that the film's "fatuity and brownnosing" makes it a shame to others in the Chinese movie sector.
"I have no idea why it was submitted for the Academy Awards," he said.
Gao is not the only one surprised by the selection. From movie goers to the media, it seems everyone has a beef with the selection. Some netizens went as far as to suggest that a shady deal is behind it.
'Wolf Totem' replaced
According to the State Administration of Press Mitchell Marner Leafs Jersey , Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT) Wolf Totem was replaced. SAPPRFT said it received a notice from the board of the Academy Awards stating that Wolf Totem's foreign staff outnumbered its Chinese staff and that as such the film does not qualify as a Chinese entry, China Film News reported.

Most of the cast was Chinese while post production roles such as soundtrack creation, cinematography Nazem Kadri Black Jersey , editing and special effects were largely headed by foreign staff. Ang Lee's film Lust, Caution (2007) found itself in a similar predicament in 2007 and was replaced by another film too.
"I believe that the selection committee completely forgot the importance of actors in a film. It's the same as ignoring the content of the film," said Annaud in an interview with AFP. "I am stupefied…suddenly, the rules changed. It was almost a banana republic-level of arbitrariness."
Why 'Mr Tumor'?
