I am nominating the 1989 Oscars for featured list because I believe it has great potential to become a Featured List. I read the requirements and criteria. I also followed how the 1929, 1990, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2009, 2010, and 2012 Oscars were written.
Fixed: I fixed everything mentioned above. As for the "no host" thing, in one of the references its says...
"Carr said there will be no principal host on the show. ``No comedians, no Chevy Chase, no emcee. It`s going to be like a relay race from star to star to star-a true cavalcade of stars. We`re calling them star participants. Jane Fonda, for example, is going to introduce one of the five `best film` clips and then she`ll introduce her godfather, Jimmy Stewart, who will appear with Kim Novak after we show a clip of them together in Vertigo.
So I stated in the ceremony info that, "Instead of hiring a host for the proceedings, he heavily relied on presenters often grouped in pairs as either couples, compadres, co-stars, or companions."
Drive-by comment: Didn't Who Framed Roger Rabbit win three awards? The article says four. If it won a special achievement award, it has not been mentioned.--krimuk90 07:09, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Fixed: I added the reason for Richard Williams Special Achievement Oscar. The link provided indicates the award was given to honor Who Framed Roger Rabbit. AMPAS officially gives Roger Rabbit's awards tally at four.
couples, compadres, co-stars, or companions - do we really need the alliteration?
Snow White - the Disney princess or the character from folklore?
"Carr would be alive today" - Paraphrase this, as Carr was still alive in 1996 (at the time the source was written) and thus this is open to serious misinterpretation. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:55, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Fixed: I fixed everything mentioned above with some notes:
"couples, compadres, co-stars, or companions" changed to "pairs that had some connection either through family or the film industry."
Snow White is the Disney one. Clicking on it links to the Disney character. I also mentioned the film she's from
When Cates said "Carr would be alive today" I know he meant that Carr would had not received those terrible review of the show had the opening number dragged on. I paraphrased it as Carr would have not received such harsh criticism "if the number had been only 3 minutes.”
