Jornal do Brasil: Vitória inédita
'Cidade de Deus' é indicado a quatro Oscar e surpreende até mesmo o próprio diretor Fernando Meirelles

City of God is nominated for 4 Oscars including BEST DIRECTOR!!! But it was passed over for Best Foreign Movie. Go figure...

FOX News: "Brazilian movie director Fernando Meirelles, whose film 'City of God' was nominated Tuesday for four Academy Awards, asked production assistants a single question when he heard the news: 'Has the Academy gone mad?'"

United Press International: "In addition to getting a Best Director nod for Fernando Meirelles, Cidade de Deus is also in the hunt for honors in the categories of film editing, cinematography and best adapted screenplay."
