    2007 SSG Oscar Movie Challenge

    Hey folks, UK and I decided to do another challege. Rules are you can watch any movie or short that has been nominated for, or won an Academy Award. We'll run the challenge for a month, starting at midnight tonight, 1-24 through 2-24 ending at midnight. We'll keep track just like we did back with the other challenges. If so, if you can also put in what the movie was nominated for as well. Here is a good place to check if a movie you'd like to watch has been nominated. Enjoy!
    You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

    I lucked out on that one, since I'm home sick and feeling near death I found it on HBO just after the Robert Loggia intro scene, so I watched it almost in its entirety...I love that movie, even as a kid I loved it when my old man would watch it, of course now I appreciate it a whole lot more.

    I'll probably watch a DVD tonight and make sure it's Oscar caliber.
    Plus I'm calling in tomorrow too, so I should be able to catch another one or two between naps.

    An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)
    1/25
    Closer (2004)

    Natalie Portman and Clive Owen were both nominated for Supporting Acress and Actor...both very good performances, in my opinion, with Owen's being the best in the film.

    I just put in my Life as a House DVD in error, I was thinking of the Golden Globe nom for Supporting Actor for H-Christ (as well as SAG nominations for H-Christ as well as Kevin Kline for Actor).

    Anyway, it's a great movie and I don't want to stop watching it now that I started, so I'm giving it honorable mention here.

    An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)
    1/25
    Closer (2004)
    Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

    Nominated:
    Supporting Actress- Abigail Breslin
    Best Picture

    Won:
    Best Original Screenplay
    Supporting Actor- Alan Arkin

    I love this movie, saw it once in the theater then again on DVD and a few times since on HBO, including today. Just a good movie all around, the whole cast is good with Alan Arkin's "Grandpa" being especially humorous.

    Steve Carell rocks in this movie as well.

    WTF ? You guys start up this thread and now I'm posting for the 5th straight time?

    An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)
    1/25
    Closer (2004)
    Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
    Jackie Brown (1997)

    Nominated: Robert Forster, Supporting Actor

    What can I say about Jackie Brown? It's definitely Tarantino's best movie and Forster was awesome as Max Cherry, but IMO they could have nominated several others for their performances ESPECIALLY Pam Grier as Jackie and Michael Keaton as well. Great movie, great story, great acting. Great soundtrack, too. Oh, and Sid Haig is in it as well.
