Well the other day we have heard that the Oscar Film has been nominated for Oscars for the category of ” Foreign Language Film Award” Although the film was passed by the jury and it was praised a special screening where Asim and its cast Adnan Malik as well as Aamina Sheikh were present, well it seems that the film has failed to make the final cut. The nine films which are short listed films include; Birds of Passage (Colombia), Never Look Away (Germany) The Guilty (Denmark), Shoplifters (Japan), Ayka (Kazakhstan), Capernaum (Lebanon), Cold War (Poland) , Burning (South Korea) and Roma from Mexico. Although Cake did not make the final list, but it has won appreciation at the special review and it is indeed a proud moment that our films like Cake are being made in Pakistan which have received so much love from all over the world.

To quote @a_abbasi “The Cake that keeps giving.” What an honour to be in LA and share Pakistan’s official submission to the Oscars at special screenings for members of the academy. There’s insane competition from films like Roma and the Shoplifters this year, but there’s great satisfaction in knowing that influential people will watch this unique and heartfelt film that may help alter the perceptions of Pakistan. Proud to be ambassadors of change. 🙏🏼🇵🇰❤️ #cakethefilm #oscars #academyawards #foryourconsideration
