There is an easy way to make use of select_realated(tables) features in ModelAdmin. By now list_select_related is expecting boolean type but i made a minor change to expect list or tuple. In this way we can specify join tables instead of join all of them.

The change is backward compatible.

Actually, you don't need this patch at all; you can just override ModelAdmin.queryset() to do whatever you need there. e.g.:

class MyModelAdmin(ModelAdmin):
    def queryset(self):
        return super(MyModelAdmin, self).queryset().select_related('foo__bar__baz', depth=2)
