Re: And I have three episodes left, so no spoilers please.
I watched 80 Days once and am not interested in seeing it again. Based on the type of alleged merits the Best Picture Oscar was supposed to be recognizing I can't believe that they picked that over The Ten Commandments. And the other Oscars they decided to heap on it included Adapted Screenplay, of all things. Of course my favorite movie of that year is The Searchers. I know that was never going to win Picture, but you'd think they could have at least spared a nomination for Cinematography (also won by 80 Days). I don't know what I'd pick instead of Ben-Hur for '59, that was such an amazing year. But James Coburn's debut performance in Ride Lonesome gets a nomination for supporting actor.
