  10. You are probably right. In 1935, Mutiny on the Bounty earned 3 Best Actor nominations for Clark Gable, Charles Laughton and Franchot Tone - the only time this has occurred. In all likelihood, Tone would have been considered for Supporting Actor, if the category was available. It would be the following year, 1936, that the Supporting Awards would begin.
  11. In The Time of Their Lives (1946), Lou Costello plays Horatio Prim, a Revolutionary War era tinker. He utters the expression Odds Bodkins numerous times. A bodkin is a tool for piercing leather.

It can happen because Best Picture nominees are selected by all Academy members, while Best Director nominees are only selected by the
  14. Eternal Sunshine was one of the rare films that I initially wasn't bowled over by, but improved significantly on subsequent viewings -enough to make my top ten.
  15. There is nothing in the Academy rules to preclude voting for a performer in either the lead or supporting category. I'm sure Barry Fitzgerald received enough votes in both categories to receive two nominations. After this occurrence, the Academy amended its rules so that a performer could not receive nominations in both acting categories for the same role. If a performer qualified for the top 5 in both categories, he or she would be nominated in the category that they received the most votes.

  21. Reggie Nalder - The assassin in The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) and the vampire in Salem's Lot.
  22. Here's a few more titles that ended with a good punch *The Usual Suspects* *Planet of the Apes* *Primal Fear* *Jacob's Ladder* *The Game*
  23. I've never been able to find Keenan Wynn in *Touch of Evil*. IMDB lists him as Joanna Moore's attorney, but it's obviously not him in the scene.
  24. The Hayley Mills movie is actually titled *The Truth About Spring*, and it is difficult to find, other than as unofficial DVDs transferred from a VHS copy.
