I like that. But remember that hundreds of actors die each year, so you'll have the tough task of knowing where to draw the line. Actually, no, I guess any death deserves to be honored, even if they aren't 'famous' enough to be included in our list or in the Academy's 'In memorium" segement. If someone is willing to watch a film to honor a character actor's passing, it should count, right?

I was thinking that too. I might draw the line like wild cards, only allow maybe 6-10 titles like that. I think I will do it, more details will come as I start the thread for the challenge. It will be a bit later this year since they pushed the Academy Awards back into March this year. So the challenge won't officially begin until the beginning of February.
