    Is this accurate? They have only three R rated films as being nominated this decade, there are more than three R rated films nominated this year.

    Is there a different UK rating system, The Guardian being a UK paper and all? Just guessing.

    Yeah, that R-rated thing is just blatantly incorrect — I don’t know where they got that from. UK ratings are numerical (12, 15, 18, etc), so that can’t be it.

    I think this is beautiful and I say (and speak for myself as well) that by coming to this site, you too have way too much time on your hands.

    Daniel Day Lewis hardly had a short back and sides when he won last year and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a toupee. So if Voight is the long haired winner where does DDL fit in? Plus he probably had long hair when he won his first one too.

    Pretty good idea but they screwed it up.

    AdamL: I think they meant the character had short back and sides–Daniel Plainview certainly did.

    Tonight, you’ll have to change those stats to 2 long-haired winners, and 15 blondes.

    Yeah, and some of that information on the site is incorrect, especially the R-rated one mentioned earlier. In the aughts, there are now 27 R-rated nominated films, and by the end of the night, 5 of this decade’s Best Picture winners will have been R-rated films (Gladiator, Crash, The Departed, No Country for Old Men, Slumdog Millionaire).

    Hey, what about William Hurt in “Kiss of the Spider Woman?” Not long long hair, but certainly long.
