April 2021 "31 Days of Oscar 2021"


Recommended Posts

Let's see, Oscar movies that I don't recall TCM showing a bunch...

 

Agnes of God

Almost Famous

Block-Heads...turns out a Laurel and Hardy movie got nominated for Score

Carol (2015!)

Eskimo

The Hanging Tree

Honeysuckle Rose

Ice Castles

Inside Daisy Clover--actually I know TCM has shown this multiple times, but gotta say, this has always sounded like a pornographic film to me

Leaving Las Vegas

Lies My Father Told Me

Mona Lisa

Mr. Hulot's Holiday

Nebraska

One Million BC--my God, Carole Landis was so good-looking

Operator 13--Marion Davies!

Paisan

Passion Fish

Primrose Path

The Pumpkin Eater

Romance--Greta Garbo film I've never even heard of

The Secret of Santa Vittoria

Star Witness--Walter Huston film I've never heard of

The Truman Show

  • MovieCollectorOH changed the title to April 2021 "31 Days of Oscar 2021"
  1. Thank you for compiling this.
  2. Nothing on the schedule I want to see; maybe I'll dip into that John Ford boxset.
  3. After the May 2 entries, the April entries repeat.
  4. Primetime programming for March 31 is still TBA. Any idea what TCM plans to show? (Probably documentaries about the history of the Academy Awards.)

Once again don't see anything new in the foreign films.  That seems like low-hanging fruit they're passing up.  There have to be all sorts of long-forgotten foreign films out there that they could get a good set of subtitles for.  I've been watching a bunch on ok.ru.  I liked "The Boys of Paul Street".

I think I'll just rely on you fine people to give me notice about the short films that they'll be running between features.  Maybe, maybe one day we'll get actual time in the schedule for the Short Film categories.

1. You're welcome
3. P.S. oops nevermind - my problem.  I see what happened.
4. I noticed that too about the end of the March, which hasn't changed in a while.  I'll quote you again if I see an update.

They're running "Here Comes the Navy".  I recorded that off of TCM once solely because it got a Best Picture nomination.  It is the most generic film you could possibly imagine, James Cagney and Pat O'Brien getting into wacky sailor hijinks.  It wasn't a *bad* film, but it was just like a lot of other Jimmy Cagney programmers.  It's interesting because it's got gorgeous young Gloria Stuart in it if anybody's curious about the old lady from "Titanic", and it's interesting because a whole bunch of it was filmed aboard the USS Arizona, believe it or not.  Otherwise, it's like they found themselves one nominee short that year and someone drew out of a hat.

I was shocked to see Almost Famous ('00) on up here. I heard of it but never got too watching it, plus it came out the same year I was born

Terrific.  Just a great movie.

It's a great movie.  I saw it in the theater! I think I had to see it with my parents because it was rated R--I was a year or so shy of being able to see it without them.  I remember the soundtrack being really popular.  I had a bootlegged copy of it burned on a CD.

Wow must be really good, can't wait to see it then😄

"Gone With The Wind" isn't airing during 31 Days of Oscar but it is airing in March.  Weird.

 

Anyway, I don't think I'll be watching anything on that list for the whole month but it's mainly because I've seen most of the movies.  It's a pretty good list.  The A-Z format leads to certain categories being neglected; I've complained about foreign films and shorts already, and there aren't very many documentaries either.  But as it is, it's a good list.

I've looked at every title from A through H. and so far, there isn't a single 20th Century Fox movie.

 

Sucks, doesn't it.  Probably applies to William Fox's original studio as well, since "Sunrise" is not on the list.

 

Of course, in three years "Sunrise" will be in the public domain.  :)

Too bad, I was really hoping to see The French Connection ('71), All About Eve ('50), The Grapes of Wrath ('40), and All That Jazz ('79)

Hey TopBilled.  How’s it going?  I was wondering.  Do you think they’ll still be having the virtual TCM Classic Film Festival this year?  Since 31 Days Of Oscar is now moved to April or now that I’ve thought about it the other day?  Maybe they’re actually talking about rescheduling that too.

Good question, David. I forgot all about the TCM film festival. Maybe someone else with more knowledge on the subject will come along and chime in!

Hope you've been staying safe and healthy.

They've not publicly announced a date for the virtual film festival, nor how it will be run (over their linear channel, their YouTube "channel" or some other means, or some combination of the above).
