The one thing that's really aggravating me about the nominees list is that no one can ever honestly get a platinum on that list since The Patriot is a lost film.

I agree, I was like...why?

I am excited about the possibility of a nominee checklist. I've got the 00's complete and a good portion of 90's done. I'm still working on the 250 next though, so it'll be pushed back, but I can't wait, I was planning on watching those.

@dAJaro: The movies which are on the Leonard Maltin list but are not on TSPDT are: The Freshman, Sons of the Desert, Swing Time, Dodsworth, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, The Ox-Box Incident, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Mary Poppins, and Blazing Saddles.

Regardless, I've changed my mind. I now agree with you and naikou; I now think "I'd rather have the winners included on the nominees list" but I also would definitely like to have the BP list exist on its own.

I'd rather have the winners included on the nominees list, personally.

@ Jumping Elephant: Why would a separate list with all the nominees (including the winners) make this list redundant?
Lists do not have to be 100% exclusive. Just take a look at the Leonard Martin list. AFAIK every single entry can also be found on the TSPDT list. Does that make the LM list redundant?

I can't wait for the new update at the end of the month. I also can't wait for the iCM "surprise", but I'm hoping that will be a separate list than this (and not an addition to this list); On the other hand, I hope that these films will not be present in the surprise (if indeed the surprise Erik is teasing us with is a list of Oscar BP noms); if these titles were also included on that list, it would seem a little redundant to me.

In my DVD or Blu-ray collection I love having the movie that won the Academy Award as Best Movie for that particular year. I have also tried, unsuccessfully I might add, to expand my collection to include those nominated for that high honor each year. That is where my collection is incomplete. I still would date anyone who views my collection to not be able to pick out a movie that has won some award.

Finally completed this list! I was surprised to see that only 176 other users have Platinums on it; out of over 131 000 iCM users that's surprisingly few! Of course, now I feel extra awesome. :-)

They should make a Razzie's worst picture winner list.

IMO Slumdog Millionaire wasnt a OSCAR material. Thats probably coz I've seen hell lot of better Indian movies than this one. SM is nothing but a typical slum-hero-successfully-gets-his-girl-against-all-odds movie thats gets released here every month.
