Dunya & Desie - List of Dutch submissions for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film - Netflix

The Netherlands has submitted films for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film since 1959. The award is handed out annually by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue. The award was created for the 1956 Academy Awards, succeeding the non-competitive Honorary Academy Awards which were presented between 1947 and 1955 to the best foreign language films released in the United States. As of 2017, seven Dutch films have been nominated for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, three of which have won the award: The Assault in 1987, Antonia's Line in 1996 and Character in 1998. Two Dutch submissions were disqualified: The Vanishing in 1989 because more than half of the film was spoken in French and Bluebird in 2006 because it had aired on television. Fons Rademakers represented the Netherlands in the competition five times, achieving two Oscar nominations, including one win.
