Deepa MehtaIndia-born director Deepa Mehta's film 'Water' was Tuesday selected among the final five Oscar award nominations for best foreign language category.


'Water', set in pre-independence India and focusing on the travails of Hindu widows, was Canada's official entry to the coveted awards.

For Indian buffs, the Hindi-language film's inclusion would be some consolation after India's official entry, 'Rang De Basanti', did not make it to the competition.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) Tuesday morning released the nominations for Academy Awards 2006 at Beverly Hills, California.

The winner will be announced at a glittering ceremony Feb 25 at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre.
