THE OSCAR PROJECT
The Oscar Project
A quest to watch every Oscar nominated film
It’s the last few days of January and February will be upon us this week. It’s time to pick your film for week 5 of the challenge. The category this week is an Early Film of a Famous Actor/Actress.
I don’t have a specific list for this week because it’s likely everyone will pick different actors, but thankfully the internet can help you find all the films an actor has been in over their career. Most actors have a filmography list on their main page on Wikipedia, or you can always use IMDb to find a good selection. I picked my film a few weeks ago, but it turns out to be perfect timing because I just watched this actor’s most recent film which I thoroughly enjoyed.
My Selection-Bachelor Party
I wanted to watch Tom Hanks’s first feature film, He Knows You’re Alone (1980), but wasn’t able to easily find it, and his second earliest credit was in Splash which I’ve seen, so I went with Bachelor Party instead. I’ve seen plenty of Hanks films, but there are definitely some gaps that I need to go back and fill in from his filmography.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
