I miss Billy Crystal's montages. Anyway, for the heck of it, I'm listing all the best pic winners (courtesy of [ profile] petzipellepingo and bolding the ones I've seen. There are some significant holes in here. (ETA most recent)

And the Oscar goes to... )

So, 42 43 of them. I'm actually more surprised at the break up in the 1950s than anything else, really.

Also, as far as my guesses on who will win: Argo, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, Jessica Chastain, Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Hathaway, Brave, and costume design to Les Mis.

Stolen from an article posted by [ profile] petzipellepingo. There are some weird omissions on this list. Bolding ones I've read in total, italicizing ones I've read in part.

Still seems weird that the diary of Anne Frank, Life and Death in Shanghai, and Origin of Species aren't on here.

ETA: Okay, the website stipulates these written in English since 1923, which rather belies the "all-time" title, but I think Life and Death in Shanghai was originally written in English. It does explain Frank and Darwin, though.

Taken from [ profile] petzipellepingo, chosen via reader vote. For the heck of it, I'm bolding what I've read and italicizing what I've seen as a film since almost all of these have a movie version, many of them classics.

I've read very, very few. )
So, read 7, saw 15.

Also, a companion list of Wiki's Top 100 Mystery Novels of the Last 100 Years

Same deal, bold I read it, italics I saw it )

Read 7 (with another coming soon), saw 12.
