Well, Midnight Cowboy was the winner. Was Clockwork Orange X-rated? I think it's that. Megan says it's something else, and that I'm wrong. I restrained myself from Googling it, so that should count for something.
Nope, but a very good guess. When released in the US an edited version of "A Clockwork Orange" received an R rating. It wasn't released in the US with an x-rating before nomination. You are right about Midnight Cowboy, though. And you are in the correct era for the second film.
You know, I actually can't find a consensus of whether A Clockwork Orange was released with an X-rating or not. You might be right. The truth is that the Oscar nominations were for the unedited version, I imagine, so I'll give you a prize anyways. So, there is a third movie, that was nominated for a couple Oscars that was rated X upon it's release, and a second prize available.
Well, I looked up the answer. The way you phrased the question is a little misleading, as it wasn't a Best Picture nomination. If nobody answers by tomorrow, I will claim my second picture, as I liked the first one so much.
I just said they were nominated for Oscars, I didn't say which ones. As a hint to others, the remaining film was nominated for best director and best actor, but won neither.
HaHa!!! Last Tango in Paris!!! I knew it! Although I admit to checking Wikipedia to find the name of the film because I couldn't remember it. I don't want a prize. Just am excited that I knew a piece of film trivia.
So excited you had to post it twice! What do you want a picture of Megan? You want to be a superhero, too? For anyone who cares, here's a link to an interview with Maria Schneider, the gorgeous female star of Last Tango. It seems everyone was miserable making that film...
Megan said it was a Russian movie. I told her Dr Zhivago was not rated X. Congratulations.
Yeah, after they cut out the orgy scene, Dr. Zhivago squeezed by with a PG rating...
Dan is ignoring huge components of this conversation, like me saying that Dr. Zhivago was not the movie I was thinking of. As all of Dan's elementary school teachers wrote on his report cards. "Dan has difficulty accepting that he is not always right."
Speaking of good Russian films, let me recommend the movie Stalker to everyone out there. Great great movie.
