LONDON (AP) A Belgian drama of love, loss and bluegrass, and a love story from the Palestinian territories are among Academy Award nominees for best foreign-language film.

Felix van Groeningen's "Broken Circle Breakdown" and Hany Abu-Assad's "Omar" are nominated alongside Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's love letter to Rome, "The Great Beauty"; psychological thriller "The Hunt" from Denmark's Thomas Vinterberg; and "The Missing Picture," an exploration of Pol Pot's bloody dictatorship by Cambodia's Rithy Panh.

The shortlist was announced Thursday in Beverly Hills.

Winners of the 86th Oscars will be announced March 2 during a ceremony at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.
