I was counting the number of Best Picture Oscar winners during the broadcast on Sunday - and I've seen 46 of the now 81 winners. My current favorite is still Out of Africa, but there are many I've seen lots of times. Gone with the Wind is always a masterpiece, and I'm one of the few who loves Shakespeare in Love. I don't like Million Dollar Baby or The English Patient, but I can appreciate their quality. I'm also a fan of the musical age, with My Fair Lady, Oliver!, The Sound of Music and West Side Story. There's a great theater in Times Square that often shows Oscar winners on the big screen just before the Oscar ceremony and it was wonderful to see so many the way they premiered, or close to it.
