First up in the new-to-me best picture list: "It Happened One Night." Not only did it win a little gold statue for best picture, but Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, and Frank Capra won for best actor, actress, and director as well in 1935.
Today's viewings: "Million Dollar Baby" (2005 winner for director, picture, supporting actor, and lead actress) and "You Can't Take It with You" (1939 winner for picture and director, with Frank Capra adding another feather to his cap).
Updated June 18: finished The Artist (2011) tonight. Enjoyed it! Jean Dujardin makes me think of some kind of Mandy Patinkin / Fred Astaire lovechild.
