Pic of the Day: “Your father and I were just discussing his day at work. Why don’t you tell our daughter about it, honey?” “Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go fuck himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.” (20th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Nate, if you’re thinking about winning this game, then you’re as crazy as he is.” “Well, maybe so. But you spend fourteen years in this tank, you begin to understand that you’ve only got two things left they can’t sweat out of you or beat out of you… Your balls. And you better hang onto them, because they’re about the only thing you’re gonna have when you get out of here.” (45th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Now, shut up! Shut up, all of you! Now listen to me, you hicks. Yeah, you’re hicks too, and they fooled you a thousand times like they fooled me. But this time, I’m going to fool somebody. I’m going to stay in this race. I’m on my own and I’m out for blood.” (70th Anniversary)


Oscars 2019: Best Animated Feature Eligibles

Oscar season is almost upon us, folks. This is our first prep article. Your summer reading list, if you will.

We’ll go over the Foreign Language Film eligibles in a few weeks, but for now, we’ve got the list of submissions for Best Animated Feature. There are 32 of them this year (a record).

I haven’t really noticed a glut of animated films this year, so it’ll be interesting to see what there is to eventually lose to Frozen or Toy Story. They broke the dam on nominating an anime last year, so perhaps another one of those is in store. But the first step is seeing what’s eligible. So that’s what we’re gonna do today.

Here are the 32 eligible films for Best Animated Feature: (more…)

Pic of the Day: “You’re right, I’ve got a lot of problems… But they belong to me.” “You think they’re yours, but they’re not. Everybody that walks in that door becomes part of your problem. Anybody that comes in contact with you. I didn’t want to be part of your problem, but I am. I’m leaving my husband, and maybe I would have anyway, but the fact is, is, I’m doing it now, and part of it’s because of you. You’ve had an effect on my life.” (30th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Someday, I wish upon a star / And wake up where the clouds are far behind me / Where trouble melts like lemon drops / High above the chimney tops / That’s where you’ll find me / Somewhere over the rainbow / Bluebirds fly / Birds fly over the rainbow / Why, then oh why, can’t I?” ♫ (80th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “After this I can’t live with my parents anymore. I’ve got to disappear.” (60th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “It’s just murder. All God’s creatures do it. You look in the forests and you see species killing other species, our species killing all species including the forests, and we just call it industry, not murder.” (25th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Power laces, all right!” (30th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “These men are detectives, Mr. Warne.” “I don’t care if they’re the whole police department. They can’t come busting in here, shooting questions at my wife.” “Now, don’t get so excited, Peter. The man just asked a civil question.” “Oh, is that so? Say, how many times have I told you to stop butting in when I’m having an argument?” “Well, you don’t have to lose your temper!”” ’You don’t have to lose your temper’. That’s what you said the other time, too. Every time I try to protect you. The other night, at the Elks Dance, when that big Swede made a pass at you!” “He didn’t make a pass at me! I told you a million times!” “Oh, no? I saw him. He kept pawing you all over the dance floor!” ”He didn’t! You were drunk!” “Aw, nuts! You’re just like your old man! Once a plumber’s daughter, always a plumbers daughter! There isn’t an ounce of brains in your whole family!” “Oh, Peter Warne, you’ve gone far enough! I won’t stand for it anymore!” “Aw, shut up!” “Now, you see what you’ve done?” (85th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” (20th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “Sweet princess, if through this wicked witch’s trick, a spindle should your finger prick… a ray of hope there still may be in this, the gift I give to thee. Not in death, but just in sleep, the fateful prophecy you’ll keep. And from this slumber you shall wake, when true love’s kiss, the spell shall break.” (60th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “Here’s a wire from the New York office. They don’t like the title, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, so they’ve changed it. And how they’ve changed it!” “Changed ‘Romeo and Juliet’? But, they can’t do that!” “They can’t, but, they have!” “What are they going to call it?” “‘The Neckers’.” (90th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Why should I go with you? Don’t you hear them down there? Why should I give that up?” “They’ll want more now. They want much more. They want more than you could ever give.” “I’ll give them whatever they want.” (45th Anniversary)


Image

Pic of the Day: “You are staring at me. It’s a hairpiece! It’s a piece.” “It’s – I’m sorry. No, it’s just that you look remarkably like Eddie Van Halen.” “I just saw Eddie Van Halen.” “Nuh-uh.” “Really?” “Yeah.” “Wow.” “Where?” “The Hollywood Bowl.” “And how was he?” “He’s a zombie.” “Aw. Tough break.” (10th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “It’s funny to think that just a year ago, I sat in that Knightsbridge Pub actually planning to murder her. And I might have done it, if I hadn’t seen something that changed my mind.” “Well? What did you see?” “I saw you.” (65th Anniversary)
