Without question, my choice was the 1972 Honorary Oscar to film great Charlie Chaplin that ended rwo decades of exile from McCarthyism. The seemingly endless ovation that night was simply emotionally overwhelming for the 83 year old star. There may be prizes presented that equal this but nothing, nothing exceeds it.

I was going with 8½ winning Best Foreign Language Film, but… 2001: A Space Odyssey winning Best Visual Effects counts even more, considering that it was its only win. A sign that the film was too ahead of its time, but also that at least there already was some respect for the incredible achievement that 2001: A Space Odyssey was.

I think the most deserving win in Oscar history would have to be Steven Spielberg winning Best Director for Schindler’s List. That really had to have been quite an undertaking for any filmmaker to make a movie with that kind of subject matter, but Spielberg was able to give us one of the best (and most important) films of all time.
Of all your years watching people win awards, what is one moment were you almost wish the wrong envelope was handed out?December 3, 2017 at 7:03 am #1202427890
I will speak for the many departed who were present for Greer Garson’s over five minutes long acceptance speech for Best Actress in Mrs. Miniver. I suspect many trapped at the Cocoanut Grove in The Ambassador Hotel that night in 1943 fervently wished for any other name to have been read.

For posterity’s sake, probably when Jack Nicholson announced that “Crash” won Best Picture.

What will be the first year the majority of best director nominees are non-male?December 3, 2017 at 3:57 pm #1202428407
I have no idea but it will not be this year.
Will Call Me By Your Name win Best Picture at the Oscars after it won The Gotham Award and now the LAFCA Award for Best Picture. Or is it still not a done deal?
For your Goldderby Film Awards consideration: Isle of Dogs for every category, especially Music Score for Alexandre Desplat!December 3, 2017 at 4:33 pm #1202428449
We still have to see what the industry awards say first. After all, Boyhood swept the critics awards three years ago, before Birdman started to take off at the industry awards.

No. Not a done deal yet.

Haven’t watched yet but gonna.
What movie will receive the most Globes, BAFTA, SAG and then finally Oscar nods/wins?December 3, 2017 at 9:02 pm #1202428653
“Call Me By Your Name” will have the most Globe and SAG nods.
“The Shape of Water” will have the most Oscar and BAFTA nods because it will have both tech and acting nods.
“Dunkirk” will have the most Oscars even if it doesn’t win best picture due to its tech haul.
