The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) shared the announcement on Monday evening on the official Twitter page of the Golden Globe Awards.

"RRR", a pan-India blockbuster, will face off with Korean romantic mystery film "Decision To Leave", German anti-war drama "All Quiet on the Western Front", Argentine historical drama "Argentina, 1985", and French-Dutch coming-of-age drama "Close".

"Congratulations to the nominees for Best Picture - Non-English Language - All Quiet on the Western Front, Argentina, 1985, Close, Decision to Leave, RRR #GoldenGlobes," the tweet read.

Variance Films, the U.S. distributor of “RRR,” launched a full awards campaign for the movie after India chose Pan Nalin’s “Last Film Show” to represent it in the Oscars’ international feature race.

“RRR” is a global sensation with impressive box office returns. With ₹240 crores ($30 million) worldwide on its first day, “RRR” broke the record for the biggest opening day collectively earned by an Indian film. Spoken in the Telugu language, it represents the first “Tollywood” film to enter and garner major awards recognition stateside.

For the Oscars, “RRR” is seeking awards consideration in all categories including best picture, director (S.S. Rajamouli), original screenplay (Rajamouli and V. Vijayendra Prasad), lead actor (for both N.T. Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan), supporting actor (Ajay Devgn), supporting actress (Alia Bhatt), original song (“Naatu Naatu”), original score (M.M. Keeravaani), cinematography, production design, film editing, costume design, makeup and hairstyling, sound and visual effects.
