Old Week. New Banner.

Can you guess what ties the films in our new banner together?

The banner is no longer that strip of Pfeiffer Pfotos because her birthday week has now passed by. [if you still want to gaze, here's my gallery] For those living under a rock or those clicking links to arrive here for the first time (which amounts to the same thing ;) no, I kid. Welcome), not all weeks have themes but this past did. Pfeiffer kept blessing the pfestivities with her presence.


Highlights from the Past Week
The Blog-a-Thon honoring La Pfeiffer.
A brief history of my Tuesday series "A History Of..."
The debut installment of our new community service: Weekly Horoscopes
A celebration of Hug an Australian Day
and an imaginery American Idol Movie.
MTV's Best Kiss nominations.
And for Oscar Obsessives (you know who you are) a look back at 1958's contenders for Supporting Actress

wow. thats not what i had in mind but good one. it does have something to do with the Oscars, though.

i was thinking that all the women won best actress but Annette didn't win.

it could be that they all "deserved" it. Since MacLaine's acceptance speech included "I deserve this". Andrews won as a snub to Audrey Hepburn for replacing Andrews as Eliza Doolittle (a role Julie originated) and obviously Annette was robbed.

but... that doesn't sound like something someone would really sit around and think about.

Warren Beatty won the Thalberg that year. does that count as her bringing something home?

I was thinking they all had links to Warren Beatty.

Annette = Married to Warren
Shirley = Sister of Warren
But I can't find a link with Julie and Warren. Warren presented the Best Art Direction Oscar at the '65 Oscars for which Mary Poppins was NOMINATED for but didn't win. Both Warren and Julie were presenters at that year's Oscars though! Umm...

But apparently it has to do with Oscars so...

It has to do with Oscar wins.

John T. said...
