NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jun 6, 2021): Best Picture Oscar Winners

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Jun 6, 2021): Best Picture Oscar Winners
Q: Write down the name of a country plus its capital, one after the other. Hidden in consecutive letters inside this is the name of a film that won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Name the country, capital, and film.
It definitely helps if you put the country FIRST, then the capital. :) Also, didn't we just have a puzzle involving an Oscar winner?

Edit: My first hint was "definitely" and the second was that we had a recent puzzle that was related, not the Chloe Zhao puzzle but instead the Ma Rainey puzzle.
