    The Oscars are an English-language awards ceremony.

    Foreign movies are considered non-English language movies. Unless the British film is spoken in a non-English language - it won't and nor should it be considered as "Best Foreign Film".

    Because it needs to be in a Foreign Language for that category. Not a year goes by that British Films do not win several Academy Awards in the various other categories.

    And, there have been many, many British films that have won Best Picture in the past: (including)

    The King'e Speech

    Ghandhi

    Chariots of Fire

    Slumdog Millionaire

    Shakespeare in Love
