  1. I missed this news, so thanks for the heads up. I might do something special with this.

    By the way, I discovered a cool link to the Oscar database on the AW forums. It shows you all of the eligible entries for Best Original Song since '52, as well as other categories. It's great for creating a song lineup, especially. Some of the eligible songs are quite odd. "Little Green Bag" from Reservoir Dogs was somehow eligible, for instance.

    1. I saw that! I wish that I had had it when I started putting my awards together a few years ago, but it is really helpful now that I'm getting into some earlier years with the Fistis.

    2. Yeah, it's really handy. I'm using it for every year they have available. I even found a song from Blow-Up that will be on this week's ballot.

    1. I really wanted to use the scene from 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' when that Asian family is talking about their adopted daughter and their actual daughter comes in speaking her native tongue and her dad says "SPEAK ENGLISH YOU STUPID LITTLE RETARD!"...but I couldn't find the gif ;-)
