A Tribute To Oscar*

What do the following people have in common?

Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard, Steve McQueen, Kirk Douglas, Errol Flynn, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Jean Arthur, Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick, Barbara Stanwyck, Greta Garbo, Irene Dunne, Deborah Kerr, Peter O'Toole, John Barrymore, Cary Grant, Richard Burton, Edward G. Robinson, and Claude Rains.

Not a single one of them ever won a competitive Academy Award.

So you'll have to excuse me for not being all that excited about the Oscars.

*Oscar Gamble....famed member of the 1977 Chicago White Sox South Side Hitmen.
