Oscars Best Picture Nominees: How many have you seen?

#1 Post by sldawgs » 22 Apr 2013, 05:49

Okay, another bragging thread. There have been 557 movies nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award. According to the Academy these are the best pictures of their respected years, and as such, should be right in our wheel house so to speak. Tell us how many you have seen and if some of them should have been left out and some that should have been nominated. Here is a link to the icheckmovies.com check list.

I've got a lot to see from 1943 and earlier, and then quite a few from the last four years I still need to see.

There's a nice stretch from 1999-2006 where I've seen them all, with only one movie missing in each of 1998 (and then all seen from 1997), 2007, and 2008.

Other than those, 1967 and 1975 are the only years from which I've seen them all

I have nine movies I haven't seen that will be the next nine I watch, when I finish with them I will have watched all the nominees from 1989-present. Like you, the most I am missing are in the 30's and 40's

I have a current streak from 2005 through 2011 (Missing Silver Linings Playbook from this year and The Aviator from 2004) I'm only missing those two, In The Bedroom and Erin Brockovitch from the 2000's.

The drop down menu by your user name has a link for "Signatures". Pick the list you want and it will be on the next page.

Ah!
Here I thought it would be in the header of the actual list.
So, it's a limited set of lists for which you can do that... that's too bad.

Yeah, I think it is most of the ones they call official lists, none of the personal lists like directors or actors.
