    Since the Oscars are being handed out tonight, I'd thought we'd go with "Best Picture" this week: any film that has won the Academy Award for Best Picture--including whichever film wins tonight.

    To find a complete list of Best Picture winners, go HERE.

    Standard av rules apply--200 x 200 pixels max, 1 MB max and must be work-safe.

    Let's start with one entry per person; we can always change that later if we need to. The poll will go up on Sunday, the 3rd--or thereabouts.

    Here's mine: Casablanca, Best Picture, 1943.

    I'll play to type, and go with one of the few SF&F films on that list:

    - Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Best Picture, 2003)

    That being said, there are a lot of non-SF&F films on that list that I enjoy, so there are plenty of choices if we end up going to more than one entry later! :)

    (BTW, seems a little ironic, coming after the previous entrant! :lol:)

    In honor of this year's winner, let's look at 1989's winner, Driving Miss Daisy.
