The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles, CA qualified Tesla Nation by Zeljko Mirkovic for the nomination of the Academy Award Oscar 2020 for the feature documentary.

“If I am fortunate enough to fulfill at least some of my ideals, that will do good for the whole mankind,” said Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943), Serbi­an-American Scientist and Inventor.

Spanning more than 200 years, the film recounts the stories of many Serbian-Americans throughout history from Djordje Sagic later known as George Fisher, the first famous Serbian-American, who is included in John Livingston's Portraits of Eminent Prominent Americans Now Living (1853), to Mihajlo I. Pupin and Nikola Tesla, Serbian-American Scientists and Inventors, World War I and II immigrants up to the present time. You will also meet three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Walt Bogdanich who works for the New York Times; Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, the first woman from Columbia University at the New York Academy of Science for Engineering; Serbian-American engineers who created the Apollo Space Program; legendary Academy Award winners Karl Malden, Steve Tesich, Peter Bogdanovich, and many more whose names are woven into history. It stresses overall Serbian-American contributions to building America and the world.

The movie had a North American Premiere at the Serbian Movie Festival at the University of Pittsburgh on March 30th, 2019. The World Premiere was in Belgrade, Serbia, on October 27th, 2018. The movie won "SNF Spirit Award" for the best film at the Serbian Movie Festival at the University of Pittsburgh.
