Lists by GusF
This list is a work in progress!
I have seen quite a few other Best Picture winners but none of them recently.
I am only including actors whom I have seen in four or more films.
In rough chronological order.
I'm not including actors who were considered for the role but not cast until a later time. Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan all fall into that category.
I am not including either TV films or short films.
The list is probably not exhaustive but it includes all of them that I could find.
The most film in which he appeared in any year was 7 in 1974.
The most film in which he appeared in any year was three in 1931, 1940 and 1969.
"Before Sunrise", "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King", "Hamlet" and "Ed Wood" are the only films on the list that were made after I was born in 1987.
John Sturges is the only person to direct two of them: "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Great Escape".
Richard Attenborough is the only actor to appear in three of them: "The Great Escape", "Hamlet" and "A Matter of Life and Death".
In alphabetical order as there was no other completely satisfactory way for me to rank them!
"Rocky" has the most sequels of any Best Picture winner at six: "Rocky II", "Rocky III", "Rocky IV", "Rocky V", "Rocky Balboa" and "Creed".
"The Lord of the Ring: The Return of the King" has the most prequels of any Best Picture winner at three: "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies".
Talia Shire has appeared in six Best Picture winner sequels, more than anyone else: "The Godfather: Part II", "Rocky II", "Rocky III", "Rocky IV", "Rocky V" and "The Godfather: Part III".
In order of viewing (July 2011 - present).
Most of these would have been dramas but a few were intended to be sitcoms.
Some would have been great, some would have been bad and some would have been so bad, they would have been good.
In rough chronological order of having completed the series (circa. 1999 to present). I'm only including series that have ended.
Of these 86 series, only 19 have 100 or more episodes and only three of those ("Stargate SG-1", "Law & Order" and "Smallville") have 200 or more episodes, which shows that I do have something resembling a life!
From his film debut in 1948 until his death in 2015, Christopher Lee appeared in at least one film in every year except for 1993, 1995, 1997, 2000 and 2006.
The most films in which he appeared in any year was 11 in 1970.
I'm not including people who appeared in tribute silent films such as "Silent Movie" and "The Artist", both of which were made decades after the silent era ended.
This is far from an exhaustive list of Disney films. It only lists the films produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios for the Walt Disney Company.
Most of these are loose adaptations of the plays which rename all of the characters (such as "Forbidden Planet" and "The Lion King") while others feature Shakespearean characters in different circumstances (such as "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead").
I'm not including adaptations with a modern setting which retain Shakespeare's language (such as Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet"), ones about William Shakespeare as a person (such as "Shakespeare in Love") or ones which depict characters in the film performing one of his plays (such as "In the Bleak Midwinter").
No films released in 1928, 1943, 2005 or 2009 won Best Picture.
This list includes every feature film that Hammer Film Productions has made since 1935.
The studio did not release any films from 1937 to 1946, in 1975, from 1977 to 1978, from 1980 to 2007, in 2009 or in 2013.
The most films that Hammer released in any year was nine in both 1954 and 1959 while it released only one film in 1947, 1976, 1979, 2008, 2011 and 2012.
From 1962 to 1977, Amicus made at least one film every year except for 1964 and 1968.
I'm not including any of the spin-off films.
Up to and including the 1996 TV Movie.
Tom Baker (possibly!), Peter Davison, Paul McGann, the late Elisabeth Sladen and John Leeson are the only actors to play the same character in both series.
In rough chronological order.
Rumour has it that Peter Capaldi was considered for the Eighth Doctor in the 1996 TV Movie and he was definitely considered for the Eleventh Doctor while David Tennant was considered for the Ninth Doctor but I'm not including either of them since they both eventually became the Doctor.
I'm only including scripted television series.
I'm only including the official Eon films.
The first eight people on the list played the same character in all three series.
Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks are the only actors to appear in the pilots of all three series.
Majel Barrett and Tom Morga are the only actors to appear in more than one episode of each series while Michael Ensign is the only actor to appear in just one episode of each series.
For the purposes of this list, I consider short-lived to be 30 episodes or less.
What I consider to be the best short lived shows that were cancelled before their time.
Why Top 11? Because I like to go one step beyond.
