This year, 80 Foreign Language Films from 49 countries are eligible for Golden Globes consideration

Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association bestows the Golden Globe Award in the Foreign Language category. To qualify a film must be a motion picture drama, musical or comedy with at least 51% of the dialogue spoken in a non English language. Documentaries are not eligible. Animated films – including foreign language ones – are considered in the Animation category.  Conversely, foreign language films are not eligible in the Best Drama Film or Best Comedy/Musical Film category.

To qualify, a foreign language film must have been released in their country of origin during the prior 15-month period, from October 1st to December 31st before the awards. Each film must have been screened for active HFPA members. Differently than the Academy Awards rules, the HFPA does not limit submissions to one per country, multiple submissions from any country are allowed as long as the films follow the qualification requirements and are screened for the membership as verified by the Foreign Film Committee.  

The nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards will be announced December 9th. Here are the eligible films:
