Nominated by Edarsenal


Let's watch some Best Picture films and vote on what we think should be nominated in what is becoming a super deep Mofo Hall of Fame!

I have decided to not set a time cap on this one due to the limited number of nominations available. I also only ask that previous winners of other Hall of Fames aren't nominated. I'm not too concerned about repeat nominations from the first Best Picture Hall of Fame but keep in mind I'm expecting some repeat contestants this go around.

Off of the top of my head, The Apartment, The Godfather, Casablanca, The Sting, The Best Years of Our Lives, All Quiet on the Western Front, Dances with Wolves, West Side Story, Wings, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and It Happened One Night are ineligible.

Well that may be all of them. Let's have fun with this! We can talk about the competitors as well to make it fun!

Sent in my nom! I was thinking I would go with a blind grab but thought, what the heck, Iíll just nominate something I know and love.

I went with a blind nom. You guys can look at my MoFo Best Picture List (which is up to date) and see if you can guess my nom. I won't tell but maybe you guys have unused psychic abilities.;)

I meant the Lists link next to my avatar (the star icon).

Unforgiven?
Sent mine in. Went with a favorite of mine.
There were 4 that I would have loved to nominate but they were all previous winners, so that helped narrow it down for me some. 😆

Yeah I know what youíre talking about but unfortunately on mobile you canít access them and I donít want to switch back on my phone since apparently thereís that issue with the layout right now. Sorry, didnít mean to make this a hassle.

I'm going with a blind grab as well regarding one I've been wanting to see.
And, of course, nom sent!

I'm going to skip this as my tastes rarely align with the Academy :D

I know what film I would choose if I joined, but looking at the possible other nominees there are entirely too many films on that list that I'd rather get a root canal than rewatch or watch at all.

I think I may sit this one out.

If I had to guess, Gladiator would be your choice. Iíve read your review, and I know itís a favorite of yours. Itís one of mine as well.
If not Gladiator, probably A Beautiful Mind?

I nominated Gladiator in the first Best Picture Hall of Fame, so I wouldn't choose it again. A Beautiful Mind is a very good movie, but it's never been a favorite so also not what I'd choose. You're on the right track in guessing films that star my favorite actors, though (and Russell Crowe is a big favorite of mine).

Ah! I should have looked at the first one to see if you had. Thatís my fault.
Hmmm. If I recall correctly, many of your reviews have had DiCaprio as a favorite.
The Departed?

That would have been a good one. Good movie.
Iíve read many of your reviews on your thread, but itís hard to remember them all. I wasnít quite sure if you had enjoyed The Departed or not.

I had it at #18 the last time I did my personal top 100.
