hints...EDITED, EDITED

here are some hints (in random order) for the remaining four movies from yesterday's movie meme:

this movie is animated. billy crystal was originally offered the chance to voice ________in the movie, but declined. after seeing the finished film, he said the decision was the biggest mistake of his career. it received an oscar nomination for best original song. in 2007, the american film institute ranked this as the #99 greatest movie of all time. it was the first inclusion of this film on the list. correctly guessed by roxie...#7 is toy story.

one of the actresses in this film was nominated for an oscar for best supporting actress…she plays a princess (giselle) in a movie recently released on dvd (as in this past tuesday i think, last tuesday at the earliest). most of the plot takes place in north carolina winston-salem to be exact…i saw the actress who plays the mother/matriarch in this movie at a restaurant in mount airy, nc last fall….this hint goes with movie #8 correctly guessed by anonymous, from junebug

this movie was nominated for best picture in the early 80’s…takes place in south carolina…has an awesome soundtrack and is a quintessential 30-something movie correctly guessed by pam, from the big chill

this movie was nominated for best picture…one of the actors won an oscar for best supporting role but his character actually dies in the movie part way thru…the young co-star of this movie wore a fat suit for her role and was nominated for best supporting actress for her role…when one of the main characters was cast he was a relative unknown in hollywood but had an emmy for his role in a popular comedy series by the time the movie was released. this hint goes with movie #5 correctly guessed by anonymous, from little miss sunshine

Ok, I just put my guess down for another one. The one in SC.

I really need to pay more attention to movies!

girlville said...

am - no that's not it. the movie filmed in sc was probably made when you were about 2 years old, lol. EARLY 80's.

Pam said...

Ah, is the third one The Big Chill?

girlville said...

pam, which quote do you think corresponds to the big chill? #4,5,7,8? then i'll let you know if you are right.

Goodboy Norman Featherstone said...

I am guessing the animated one is Aladin. Maybe #5?

girlville said...

sorry norman but it's not aladdin. however, it IS a Disney movie...but the animated movie doesn not go with quote #5.

The Devil Dog said...

Is it Toy Story? #7?

Roxy

girlville said...

yes, roxy got #7 right!

Pam said...

I'm guessing #4. I haven't seen that movie in YEARS.

girlville said...

pam, you are correct.

Pam said...

Is #5 Field of Dreams?

girlville said...

pam, nope. it's more recent than that...like the past couple of years. 3 max. i think the emmy was won 2 years ago.

I think #8 is Junebug--quirky movie--first time I ever saw Amy Adams and I love her! #5 Little Miss Sunshine? The ones I knew yesterday had already been guessed--needed extra help from today to get these--if they are right!! Thanks!! N.

girlville said...

yes, anonymous! you got them both.

Pam said...

I knew you must have been talking about Amy Adams in your hint for #5 but I had no idea what movie you were talking about.
