  1. Thanks, Tim - there are a lot of them aren't there? That's great!

    Not sure if you're planning to do more lists, but I think some categories are more valuable than others (good-movie wise), and I can only keep up with so many. :-) Perhaps you can comment about which categories you think would be good to have here (whether or not you would want to do the compiling). Also, we should consider the order of importance. So far, I think the order of Best Picture, Best Directing, Best Acting is a good one, but if we're to have more, it would probably be a good idea to consider the hierarchy.

    Pox Voldius, if you're reading this, I'd appreciate your weigh in, too.

    1. Writing might be a good category to consider. Don't know that I'd get to it before next month, though.

      Delete
    2. It would also be possible to put together a list of films that had X or more wins (3? 5?) and a list of films that had X or more nominations (5? 10?).

      But it would take some time to do. I have a copy of what's in the Oscar database sorted into alphabetical order with all wins & noms listed. (It's huge and had to be split into several files. It's also a couple years old & has last year's batch tacked on at the end.)

      Delete
    3. These are both good ideas. I agree that Writing (combined Original & Adapted) would be the best next category, but only if you want to do it, and of course, only if and when time allows. This is all supplemental, so nothing is imperative or in any way urgent.

      The multiple wins/noms category sounds like an awful lot of work. Just deciding what would be the best criteria makes my head hurt. Is a win for Sound Mixing as valuable as a nom for Best Original Song? I don't know. Then there's the whole diminishing returns thing. I don't know if what we would get out of such a project would be worth the time and trouble needed to put into it.

      The other category that interests me is Cinematography. I'll watch a movie just for that, but not sure how many others share that passion.

      I'm happy with what we have now. Best Acting was a good addition, especially because there are so many good films in that category that weren't nominated for Best Picture - I was surprised by that. Also, I think a lot of people care about that category.

      If we stop where we are now, that's fine with me. If more would be helpful, that's fine, too. I just want to make sure we put some thought into it.

      Delete
    4. Nah, Sound Mixing is technical stuff. It includes things like making sure you can hear & understand the actors' dialogue over the musical score & the sound effects, and keeping extraneous noise out of the production sound recorded on set. Bad sound mixing can ruin a good film, but you could easily have good sound mixing on an otherwise bad movie.

      Cinematography often goes hand-in-hand with Art Direction. And in a good production, the Production Designer & Art Director will work pretty closely with the Director of Photography.

      Delete
    5. That's why I would tend to set the bar pretty high if we did a list of X # wins, X # noms. For an arbitrary number, I would gravitate to something in the neighborhood of at least 5 wins, or at least 10 combined wins & noms (as wins are obviously harder to get than noms).

      Let's see... If I look at just the films whose titles start with A (not including this year's batch) with the criteria of 10+ combined wins & noms -- without checking which ones NF has -- I get a list of 8 films (Airport, All About Eve, Amadeus, American Hustle, Anne of the Thousand Days, The Apartment, The Artist, The Aviator); and movies like All That Jazz, Apollo 13, and Avatar, fall just one nomination short of making the list.

      Delete
    6. I spot-checked a few others out of curiosity: [again without checking if NF has them]

      Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) would fall just short of making the list -- it was nominated in 9 categories and won 4 of them.

      Braveheart would make the list -- it was nominated in 10 categories and won 5 of them.

      The Bridge on the River Kwai would make the 5+ wins list, but not the 10+ combined wins & noms list -- it was nominated in 8 categories and won 7 of them.

      Delete
    7. I agree that setting the bar higher rather than lower is a good idea, but I notice that, of those you spot-checked, all were nominated (or won) for Best Picture, so they would be listed under that category already. What I would want to shoot for would be a category such as "Other Oscar-Nominated Movies of Note," but I wonder how many films there are that would fit into that category, but none of the previous categories.

      Or, we could make the kind of list you suggest as a top category - above Best Picture - kind of a Best of the Best. I wonder how many of those are on Netflix at any given time.

      Thank you so much for thinking about this, and sharing your knowledge, wisdom, and time. I really value your opinion, and have a personal affinity for this page, which wouldn't exist without you.

      If anyone else has ideas, suggestions, or comments, they would be most welcome, too.

      Delete
  2. The Best Writing titles now have their own section.

    I went ahead and created a section for Other Oscar-Nominated Films of Note. It is not necessarily complete. I wanted to have a section for those films that deserved to be on this page, but didn’t fit any of the existing categories. My criteria leaves room for some subjectivity. Suggestions are welcome.

    We now have 10 separate sections, and I think we should stop there, otherwise this page will become too unwieldy. It's already showing signs of that, so I'm working on a better way to display the titles.

    I took down Best Directing - not without an inner struggle, but it just felt like there was too much overall, and that category seemed awfully small for its importance (because of the crossover with Best Picture). Since 4 of the 6 Best Directing titles were also in other categories, I decided to put them there, and then put the remaining 2 in the Other Films category. In the re-design, I may come up with a way to note their Best Director nomination.

    1. Thank you, P.V. I know I've said it before, but I really appreciate you staying on top of what needs to go on/come off this page. It really helps to lighten my load, and keep this page current, accurate, and complete. I use the info here all the time when deciding what to watch, as do many others. I'll get these titles on tomorrow, and put those with multiple noms/wins on the New & Returned list in the next couple days.

    1. Thanks Pox Voldius. I entered these into their categories on the page, above. I put Breakfast at Tiffany's under Best Actress (nom for Audrey Hepburn) because that category comes prior to Best Writing. I will leave your list up so people can see what's new, and also see ALL Oscars won or nominated for. I want to make an adjunct to this page that will list every streaming movie that has been nominated or won any Oscar, and all the Oscars for each film. I haven't been able to keep up with organizing everything for the New & Existing page, so I'm going to try another approach. I have all the info you've supplied throughout the past year, but some of it is currently offline.

  19. Note to Pox Voldius:
    Hi P.V. - I have a favor to ask, but only if you have time and it's not too much trouble. I'm putting together a second Oscars page that has ALL the Oscar details for every streaming film that was nominated for any Oscar. I've got most of this info, as well as details for movies that have expired, so I'll have a database when things return. (Would it surprise you to learn that, since we've been in business here, you have provided these details for more than 300 films? Wow!)

    There are eleven films on the lists above that I don't have complete details for (if you have provided these in the past, I apologize for losing track of them). I'm wondering if you could send the info for these in the format you normally use, e.g., Milk, above. If you don't have time, I can gather this info, but I thought you might have a more efficient way of doing it. There's no rush. The eleven films are:

    Amadeus
    August: Osage County
    Changeling
    Julia
    Kagemusha
    Laura
    On Golden Pond
    Philomena
    Three Coins in the Fountain
    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
    To Kill a Mockingbird

    Again, please feel free to say, "Sorry, just don't have time." But if you do have time, I will be most grateful. :-)

    1. That note on Prelude to War comes from the Academy's database. Also, in 1942, there was only one Documentary category; they didn't split it between features & shorts.
