The academy's deadline for foreign-language film submissions is Tuesday, Oct. 1, and though this is a category that has often stymied common sense and gone against the critical consensus, it's safe to say that Sony Pictures Classics has an excellent chance at moving its Oscar winning streak here to five years running. The indie division has two of the year's strongest contenders -- Asghar Farhadi's "The Past" (Iran's submission) and the festival crowd-pleaser "Wadjda," the first-ever Oscar submission from Saudi Arabia.

LAS VEGAS - Anderson Silva's attempt to recapture the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight belt ended Saturday night in a grotesque lower left leg injury that casts the 38-year-old's fighting future into doubt. Silva, after being decked by a first-round right hand by champion Chris Weidman, tried a second-round left kick that Weidman (11-0) blocked with his own left shin. The impact of the contact broke Silva's lower left leg, bending it as he crashed to the mat and screamed in agony while Weidman was declared the repeat winner 1:16 into the round at MGM Grand.

If you've ever tried to submit a poem to Opinion, you've probably gotten a reply noting that we simply don't print poetry. We didn't print the poem that came in the shape of the World Trade Center towers after 9/11; we didn't print the poem that came in this month after the Trayvon Martin verdict; and we didn't print any of the hundreds of poems that came in between those events. But we've decided to make a one-time exception. We are inviting Op-Poetry submissions from readers, and on Sunday, Aug. 25, we'll devote a page of our print section to the best of what comes in. And we'll feature more of it on the Opinion website.

With a nickname like the “Korean Zombie,” pedestrian performances simply will not do. Since his American MMA debut in 2010, Chan Sung Jung has delivered a series of memorable fights. His first bout with Leonard Garcia was one of the most action-packed bouts in recent years and his second bout with Garcia produced the first UFC submission via the unique twister jiu jitsu lock. Tuesday night in Fairfax, Va., Jung progressed from popular undercard fighter to title contender with a scintillating fourth-round submission over Dustin Poirier.

"Wadjda," a film about a resourceful young tomboy, has been selected as Saudi Arabia's official submission for the Oscars' foreign language category, the first time the country has submitted a film for Academy Awards consideration. That the film, from director Haifaa Mansour, was made at all, let alone screened and submitted for the Academy Awards, is a startling achievement. In a country where the actions of women are severely restricted, Mansour managed to secretly write and shoot her movie.

Could a stunning transition in Ultimate Fighting Championship power be on the brink Saturday night at MGM Grand in Las Vegas? Middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who has worn the belt since 2006, will defend his title in a pay-per-view main event against Chris Weidman (9-0), a wrestling-schooled, jujitsu-trained fighter. MGM Resorts has Silva at the shortest price as a favorite in years at the sports books, minus-250 (just more than 2-1). “It's all coming from the fans,” MGM Resorts Sports Book director Jay Rood said.

A record 71 countries have submitted films for consideration in the foreign language category for the 85th annual Academy Awards. Missing, however, is this year's winner. Despite capturing the Oscar in February for the family drama "A Separation," Iran opted to boycott the event as a response to the anti-Islam film "Innocence of Muslims" that has sparked violence in much of the Middle East. As expected, Michael Haneke's "Amour," from Austria, and Nikolaj Arcel's "A Royal Affair," from Denmark, are entered in the competition for the gold statuette that will be awarded in February, but some other high-profile films such as the Marion Cotillard-starrer "Rust and Bone" and Saudi Arabia's "Wadjda" will not be judged by the foreign language committee at all. PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments In the case of Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone," which is generating high praise for both Cotillard's and Matthias Schoenaerts' performances, it was passed over by France in favor of the country's second-highest-grossing film of all time, "The Intouchables," starring Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy, which has earned $355 million internationally .  Oscar prognosticators predict that Cotillard's performance still will be recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

This post has been corrected. See below for updates.  Script-writing isn't for everyone, so Amazon.com Inc.'s movie and TV production arm is now encouraging filmmakers to submit "concept videos" that could be developed into features. Amazon, which is in a race with more established players like Netflix to develop original content, launched Amazon Studios in 2010 and has been accepting script submissions for movies. It has received 1,400 movie scripts to date. But now, people have the option to upload a two- to 15-minute video instead.
