The IndieWire predictions for “Best International Feature Film” suggested that “Perfect Days,” “Fallen Leaves,” and “The Zone of Interest,” which also stars Sandra Huller from “Anatomy of a Fall,” will follow certain festival circuit paths.

Along with other “Barbie” songs by Oscar-nominated singer Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, the actor Ryan Gosling sang and co-wrote the viral hit “I’m Just Ken,” which is included on the Best Original Song shortlist.

Star power powers the Documentary Feature category with movies like “American Symphony” and “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie.” The shortlist entries “The Eternal Memory,” “Going to Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project,” “Four Daughters,” and “Bobi Wine: The People’s President” have, in the meantime, continued to garner praise and honors.
