Top 5 baseball movies to celebrate Baseball Fan Day!Top 5 baseball movies to celebrate Baseball Fan Day!Amanda Wood8/12/2016 10:00:00 Am

If there’s one sport that’s synonymous with summer, it’s baseball. Few things scream summer more than cheering on your home team in the stands with a hotdog and popcorn.

Today is Baseball Fans Day, which celebrates the millions of baseball fans around the world. Our collective love for the sport has naturally spilled over into Hollywood, where scores of movies have been made over the years celebrating the boys (and girls) of summer and the excitement of the game.

In honour of Baseball fans day, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite baseball movies. Check out the list below to see if your fave made the cut, and then head outside to play it yourself!

 

Field of Dreams (1989)

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

"Winton describes it with such love and respect and is so protective of the land that I felt like I had already known it"..

The vast majority of the shoot will take place in the coastal town of Denmark, which Johnson is "in awe of", and the producer is already excited about the communal atmosphere.

"I have to say, and it's been a long time since I've experienced this - the entire town is behind this film. »

We're less than one week away from the Oscars, and while we're cheering on this year's talented nominees (oh hey, Eddie!), we're also thinking about those lauded actors who have continuously scored nominations over the years while simultaneously winning over audiences. Why, you ask? Well with five-time nominee Leonardo DiCaprio poised to probably take home his first-ever Oscar, we got to thinking about other talented stars who've been nominated several times in their careers and never won (how is this fair to Diane and Glenn?!).

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »
