My vote goes to Andrew Harris for best actor. Not many people can pull off the excuse he gave for his situation with a straight face like he accomplished.

Oscar worthy for sure.

Some great movies on those lists. While not my favorites, here are a few other notable movies

Football - Remember The Titans, The Blindside, Any Given Sunday
Baseball - Bull Durham, Field of Dreams
Hockey - The Deadliest Season ( A made for TV movie I saw way back in the 70s with Michael Moriarty and Meryl Streep of all people - Moriarty’s character gets charged with assault for an on ice incident)
Boxing - Million Dollar Baby, The Fighter
Soccer - Bend It Like Beckham, Kicking and Screaming

Good boxing movie picks.

Favourite football move - Rudy
Hockey movie - Slap Shot
Baseball movie - 42
Boxing movie - Rocky I
Other sport movie - Seabiscuit
documentaries - Senna

Boxing. Rocky, Cinderella Man, Ali
Golf. The Legend of Bagger Vance , Caddyshack
Hockey. Slap shot, The Rocket, Miracle on Ice
Baseball. 42, Eight Men Out, The Natural

Thought of another Canadian classic. “Face Off” from 1971. SCTV did an awesome spoof on that. I think it was called “Billy” John Candy as a goon on the TORONTO BAY LEAVES.

Here you go . A definite Oscar contender . :ice_hockey: :full_moon_with_face:
