Nine foreign-language films get closer to Oscar 

Nine foreign-language films are advancing in the Oscar race.

After months of screenings, a committee from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has narrowed the 66 qualifying films down to nine.

The foreign-language films vying for Academy Award nominations are: Algeria's "Hors la Loi" ("Outside the Law"), Canada's "Incendies," Denmark's "In a Better World," Greece's "Dogtooth," Japan's "Confessions," ''Biutiful" from Mexico, South Africa's "Life, Above All," Spain's "Tambien la Lluvia" ("Even the Rain"), and "Simple Simon" from Sweden.

Five will earn Oscar nominations, which will be announced Tuesday.
