It’s Oscar time! Do you have any predictions? Which films do you want to do well? As the 86th Academy Awards takes place tonight, here’s a quiz celebrating winners from the six previous decades. A previously non-existent High-6 if you can get them all.
1. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
2. The Apartment (1960)
3. Kramer v Kramer (1979)
4. Rain Man (1988)
5. Dances with Wolves (1990)
6. No Country for Old Men (2007)
Great choices Alex!
Thanks. How did you do?
ummmm… Got them all 🙂
I’m a bit of an Oscar buff. In the last year I’ve watched and re-watched every winner. My final Best Pic review is coming later today.
Very well done. There were some tricky pictures in there. I’ll look out for your post.
where are the ones from the 30’s and 40’s? 🙂
I had to stick to 6 ha.
I know all the movies, but MY OWN PERSONAL thoughts on the matter Firebase Gloria, Apocalypse Now, Hamburger Hill, and Platoon should be somewhere on here. lol

When I saw the title, I assumed I’d ace this. I didn’t. 4, 5, 6. I haven’t seen 2 and 3, but I still can’t I didn’t know them.
Kramer v Kramer is a solid film elevated by its main performances, but the first two I’d really recommend
My mom liked Kramer and Kramer a lot. Even I don’t know how much that’s worth. 🙂
I got five out of six; I missed the first one.
Nice score. I really recommend Bridge on the River Kwai if you get the chance.
5/6… I still haven’t actually seen Bridge Over the River Kwai… which is something I need to remedy.
Neat score. I really think you’ll love Bridge
Ha! Had a feeling I’d bomb this one! Only got Rain Man and Dances with Wolves. I should’ve gotten Bridge on the River Kwai! I’ve seen that one! Better luck next time, I suppose…
I love Bridge. Such an incredible film. And that ending (swoons). You’ll ace the next one I’m sure. You going to watch the Oscars as part of a drinking game? 😉
Lol! I’ll be watching with my mother, so no. But very tempting…hahaha.
Lol, I only got two right. I suck at this! 🙂
O well, just more reasons to read your blog more! 😉
You’re welcome anytime. If you have any ideas for a quiz let me know 🙂
