Steiger, Washington and Hackman were all modern day policemen who won Best Actor. Wahlberg didn't win. Your turn I think? BTW, Denzel's got a leg up on his third this year for Fences, and Viola Davis can clear her mantel to make space for hers.
I'M AFRAID I HAVEN'T SEEN MANY MOVIES THIS YEAR...WAY BEHIND ON WHO WAS NOM AND FOR WHAT MOVIE TOO.
Only four films have won Best Picture without their directors being nominated, name the 4 movies
Well I know Wings, Grand Hotel, and Driving Miss Daisy for sure...Something tingling about Argo(2).
YOU ACED IT...YOUR TURN
50s era..The best Pic nominees were High Noon, The Quiet Man, Ivanhoe, Moulin Rouge and #5 The Winner...???
GOD ONLY KNOWS WHY ...BUT ..THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH WON THAT YEAR...GOOD QUESTION
ALONG THE SAME LINES AS YOUR QUESTION...
Auntie Mame, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, The Defiant Ones, Separate Tables...
and the winner was......?
This is either 56 or 58, I think Defiant Ones was 58, so GiGi was best pick. I liked that film better the second time I saw it, particularly Hermione Gingold and Chevalier. If I'd had a vote, I would have picked Defiant ones. Re your Comment on Greatest Show, The Bad and the Beautiful was out that year and didn't get a nom. Strange
GIGI WOULD HAVE BEEN MY LAST CHOICE...JUST ALWAYS FOUND OLD MAURICE TO BE A TAD CREEPY TO ME...YOUR TURN
Hey, Maurice just liked little girls. Two of the biggest films of their respective eras were Star Wars and The Ring Cycle. like many epics though, acting is not overly recognized. Of all The Star Wars films and the Ring Films only two acting nominations have been offered. Who were the two nominees?
...Star Wars....Alec Guinness ...supporting nom....played Obi-Wan Kenobi♥
