THEY GOT BEST ACTOR OSCARS PLAYING SOLDIERS? WELL EXCEPT GEORGE REFUSED HIS.
That's it and screw George. Your turn
LOL....JUST WATCHED A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT 5 FAMOUS DIRECTORS AND THEIR WAR EFFORTS MAKING DOCUMENTARY/PROPAGANDA/WAR MORAL MOVIES FOR WWII...JOHN FORD, FRANK CAPRA, HOUSTON...THAT ERA. KIND OF INTERESTING. IT'S ON NETFLIX....
NAME THE FIRST ACTRESS TO WIN BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS...
That Doc got good reviews, just got Netflix set up to stream and I might give it a look...Gale Sondergaard Anthony Adverse?
YES....WAS THERE NOT A SUPPORTING ACTRESS CATAGORY BEFORE? NOTICED IT WAS THE 9TH ACADAMEY AWARDS....
The best supporting actor award in 1994 resulted in a rule change. What was the change?
HMMM...DON'T KNOW...ALL I CAN THINK OF WAS THE CHANGE IN 1944...BARRY FITZGERALD....CAN'T BE NOMINATED FOR BEST AND SUPPORTING ACTOR IN THE SAME YEAR, FOR THE SAME ROLE??
A typo on my part, it was 1944 and that is the correct answer. Fitz was nominated in both lead and supporting, in Going My Way, won in the latter, Crosby won the lead. The rule was changed and 1944 it was the only time it was an issue. Featured role prize was in its infancy, so the change was a good thing. Your turn
THAT RULE CHANGE MAKES SENSE TO ME...ALWAYS FEEL LIKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN A LEAD ACTOR ROLE VERSUS A SUPPORTING ACTOR ROLE...ALTHOUGH THEY CAN BE VERY MEMORABLE.
PERTAINING TO THEIR BEST OSCAR WINS...WHAT DO THESE 3 ACTORS HAVE IN COMMON?
Ya got me, Penn's won two, which one do you refer to?
