Susanne Bier was the first Danish woman to win the award, for In a Better World.

Since the inaugural award in 1956 Denmark has submitted fifty-five films for consideration for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, eleven of which succeeded in getting nominated for the Academy Award: Qivitoq (1958), Paw (1959), Harry and the Butler (1960), Babette's Feast (1987), Pelle the Conqueror (1988), Memories of a Marriage (1989), After the Wedding (2006), In a Better World (2010), A Royal Affair (2012), The Hunt (2013) and A War (2015). Three Danish movies have won the Oscar: Babette's Feast (1987), Pelle the Conqueror (1988) and In a Better World (2010).

The official Danish submission is selected annually in late summer by the Danish Film Institute [1]

In 1957, Denmark became the first country to send a film with a female director to the Foreign Oscar competition (Annelise Hovmand's Be Dear to Me). Two years later, Astrid Henning-Jensen's Paw became to the first film directed by a woman to receive a nomination in the category.

Between 1998 and 2002, four out of five Danish submissions were made according to the austere Dogme 95 principles. None were nominated and none have been submitted since.

Submissions

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited the film industries of various countries to submit their best film for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film since 1956. The Foreign Language Film Award Committee oversees the process and reviews all the submitted films. Following this, they vote via secret ballot to determine the five nominees for the award.[2] Below is a list of the films that have been submitted by Denmark for review by the Academy for the award by year.
