a list of 531 titles
Welcome to my list! These are the movies that I love or like a heckuva lot - whether they be long-time favorites or gems that I've recently discovered. The first 100 are my top 100, in roughly preferential order (actually, very roughly after the first 25); after that, the list is alphabetically ordered.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Hope some of these are your favorites too!

The list is arranged chronologically, with the award years listed beside each nominee, and with the winners for each awards year listed first.

Note: For the periods 1940-1956 and 1959-1966, there were two categories for Art Direction: Black-and-white, and color. I've indicated which films are in which categories.
