31 Days of Oscar CONTEST

We continue our celebration of TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar, which features 360 Academy Award-nominated and winning movies, all presented uncut and commercial-free. Have a look here for the upcoming schedule of celebratory films.

As mentioned last week, Turner Classic Movies, is providing three DVDs for us to give away here on Another Old Movie Blog. We’re calling this: The Another Old Movie Blog Princess Prize Pack:

“Roman Holiday” (1953), in which Audrey Hepburn won Best Actress for her role as a runaway princess. We discussed “Roman Holiday” here in The 1950s Princess - Part 1.

“Anastasia” (1956), in which Ingrid Bergman won Best Actress for her role as an exiled princess. Maybe. We discussed “Anastasia” here in The 1950s Princess - Part 3.

“The Country Girl” (1954), in which Grace Kelly won Best Actress for her role as a longsuffering wife of an alcoholic actor. She doesn’t play a princess in this, but since she became a princess in real life, it still counts. We didn’t discuss this one yet. We will, I promise. We discussed instead Grace Kelly’s performance as a princess in search of a prince in “The Swan” (1955) here in The 1950s Princess - Part 2. Also good.

CONTEST RULES:
1. Brush your teeth.
2. Clean your room.
3. No playing ball in the house.

Oh, wait. Those are the wrong rules. (Searches file cabinet drawer for the right folder. )

Here were are. It was misfiled.

CONTEST RULES:

Leave a comment on this post telling me you want to enter the contest.

Hmm. That seems to be it. I wonder why I filed this under “K to L”?

Come back Thursday when we’ll pick the winner, which will be posted on this blog 1 p.m. Eastern Time. You have until then to enter.

Good luck. Brush your teeth anyway.

And in the meantime, keep a close watch on Turner Classic Movies and the 31 Days of Oscar.

I'd love to enter!

This is a really cool contest, and I think it's great that TCM has recognized your blog. Congratulations!

Jacqueline T Lynch said...

Thanks, Amanda. That's one name in my Akubra.

Millie said...

Yaya!

I would like to enter the contest, please! :-D

Ugh, now for the "answer". I always blow these. So please don't hold it against me! ;-D

I want to enter the contest, because those are films from my three favorite actresses in the entire world (Ingy, then Audrey, then Grace). And, as a pitiful person who is unable to get TCM (;-D), owning those films would be just plain Wowzie Kazam!

And I've NEVER been able to see The Country Girl (!!!!) because my library doesn't have it!

Sheesh, haha, this is such a long comment...SORRY!

But, anyway, yeah, thanks! :-D

Amanda said...

I'd love to enter! I've never seen The Country Girl, either.

me too!

Jacqueline T Lynch said...

Check and double check.

I guess "The Country Girl" is one they don't show all that much. I never thought about it. But, I am planning on discussing it in April, so I hope somebody's seen it.

Sally said...

I'd love to enter! That's so neat that TCM is providing you with the package! (Is it okay if I still play ball in the house?)

Jacqueline T Lynch said...

Keep them coming, folks. You still have until about 1 p.m. Eastern Time tomorrow (Thursday) to enter.

No, Sally, you may not play ball in the house. I'm keeping my eye on you.

I would love to enter! This blog is so fun to read - but it's an intelligent read at the same time. :)
