Tovino Thomas-starrer survival drama Malayalam film 2018 - Everyone is a Hero, which was India's official entry to the Best Foreign Language Film category, is out of the Oscars race.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Friday announced the shortlists in 10 categories for the upcoming 96th Oscars ceremony, where Margot Robbie-starrer Barbie received maximum nods.

Directed by Jude Anthany Joseph, 2018 - Everyone is a Hero follows the true story of unprecedented rains and floods that hit Kerala in 2018. It was chosen as it addresses a global issue and depicts the harrowing realities of what a natural calamity is for common people. The film also stars Kunchacko Boban, Asif Ali, Vineeth Sreenivasan, Narain and Lal.

It became the fourth Malayalam film after the 1997 film Guru, thriller drama Adaminte Makan Abu in 2011 and the much talked about 2019 film Jallikattu, which were picked as India's official entry for the Oscars. However, none of these films received nominations.

The Oscar nomination period will run from January 11 to January 16, with the official nominees named on January 23, 2024.
