The Oscars Nomination committee in Nepal had selected ‘Talakjung Vs Tulke’ from a pool of four movies to represent Nepal in the Awards.

Last year, Nepali movie ‘Jhola’ was sent to Oscars by the Nepali committee. No Asian movies including ‘Jhola’ could make it to the nomination to the 87th edition of the Awards. There were 83 movies in the official list last year (two movies more than this year.) In the 86th Awards, Nepali movie ‘Soongava’ was sent but, it too failed to make it to the short-list of nomination.
