Ang Lee Movie Banned From The Oscars
War drama Lust, Caution was expected to compete for a prize at next year's star studded bash, but Academy bosses have ruled Lee's effort ineligible because some of the crew members were not from Taiwan.
Chen Chun-Jer, acting director of the Taiwanese government's film department, says, "We and Ang Lee are disappointed... this movie was also popular in Taiwan."
Taiwan's Motion Picture and Drama Association has appealed the decision and is awaiting a response.
