LOS ANGELES – Israel’s streak of Oscar nominations ended Friday, when “Fill the Void,” the country’s entry, failed to make the list of nine semi-finalists among foreign-language films.

This year’s entries from 71 countries showed a renewed interest in Holocaust and World War II themes. Although also shut out, five movies dealt with the Jewish fate during the Nazi era and its aftermath, one film with Talmudic roots, and one on the wartime clashes between Soviet and German forces.
