Two actresses find themselves double-nominated; two finally get their due; and a ten-year-old defeats them all!

One of my favorite categories is Art Direction-Set Decoration (or, as of last Oscars, Production Design).

And we're back! I hope you had a loverly weekend, that you caught up with our 1993 Retrospective, that you took a look at Andrew's contributions to our time travelling activities, and that you watched at least some of the flicks written about here.

Welcoming back old friends, giving a master his due, relaxing the Boys Club mentality -- 1993 was pretty significant for Best Director.
|Especially for this guy!|

Usually, Best Supporting Actor is a playground for overdue veterans, previously-nominated favorites, and perpetrators of category fraud. Like 1975, though, 1993 is a great example of actoring at the edges, with two transcendent perfs, two sublime ones, and one that's pretty damn great.

And here begins the fight between me and Andrew Kendall.

It seems like it's been a while, yet it was only May when we last stepped into the Wayback Machine. This time, our journey takes us into the more recent past, a past that I was actually alive for: 1993.

If you follow me on Twitter, perhaps you saw the conversation between Andrew and I about our next trip down Oscar Memory Lane: the year 1993. That is, the year Steven Spielberg finally got his Oscar, for a film AFI twice considered to be among the Ten Greatest Films of All Time, and a Best Picture winner that even Nick Davis had to call "For the Ages". And I've never even seen Schindler's List! I'm saving it to be among the last I see, both to savor it, and because, who's in a hurry to watch a Holocaust film?
