Different but the Same (04/07)

Another random fact about the Oscars…

The nominees for best picture for this years Oscar ceremony were:

Milk

The Reader

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Slumdog Millionaire

Frost/Nixon

Now, look closely – can you notice what these movie titles have in common?

I will give you a hint, the last time the Best Picture nominees had the same thing in common was in 1964 when the following films were up for the Academy’s biggest award:

Mary Poppins

My Fair Lady

Becket

Zorba the Great

Dr. Strangelove

Still don’t have the answer?

Here it is: Each of the 10 titles above refer to the main character(s) in each of the films.

I thought that was interesting and so will any other movie nerd.
