30 Oscar Nominees at the Age of 30
They were 29 when we were celebrating IMDb's 29th anniversary last year and (coincidentally) 25 when it all started 5 years ago (time flies by the way)... But it seems that 30 marks a serious turning point as far as acting nominations go because we have this year more than 40 actors who've been nominated so far at the age of 30, an observation that prompted us to separate between nominees and winners in order to have less than 35 entries in each poll. So here goes the first round: as you know, we're celebrating the 30th anniversary of our favorite website, here are (would you believe it!) 30 performances that earned their actors an Oscar nomination on the year of their 30th birthday. Which of these performances (ranked chronologically) would you consider your favorite? After the vote, you might discuss the list here (oh, and the * refers to a supporting role) As usual, it's very likely that the actor/actress might not have turned 30 (or 31) before the actual date of the ceremony, but using the same convention as for the last five editions, the age 30 is simply the result of a simple subtraction of years.

What is your favorite one-word titled Best Picture winner?
I'm not sure whether having a one-word title brings good luck to movies in terms of Award-winning, but numbers never lie: more than 25% of Best Picture Oscar winners have only one word in the title.

Their status called for a poll ... so which of these 22 on-word titled Best Picture winners is your personal favorite? Discuss this poll at http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000088/thread/220740783
