The Bluegrass State Movies
The Bluegrass State is the official nickname of Kentucky. The nickname is based on the fact that bluegrass is found in many of the lawns and pastures throughout the state. Bluegrass is actually green, but in the spring bluegrass produces bluish-purple buds that give a rich blue cast to the grass when seen in large fields (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Kentucky became the 15th state of the United States of America in 1792. These movies have a connection with Kentucky. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.

Best "Big Five" Oscar Nominated Movie
Which "Big Five" Oscar-nominated movie is the best of all time? The "Big Five" Oscars award categories are those for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay, either Original or Adapted. In the past 90 years, only three films, It Happened One Night (1934), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991) have won all five Oscars from the forty-three films that secured nominations in all five prestige Academy Award categories. But, maybe sweeping the top five Oscar categories is overrated. Maybe, being nominated across a broader scope of Oscar categories, as well as, being nominated in those same big five prestige Oscar categories is a better indicator of a movie's true greatness.
