G&L, yet another shot in the dark for my oscar picks seeing as how I have not seen nary a one. Barely heard about most. Harder that picking the NCAA March Madness brackets from start to finish, at least I knew quite a bit about most teams, coaches and players. Hahaha, Thanks for the invite to the Oscar Poll.

So naturally I googled the twin question and got this great answer. Jack Warner - whadda rotten fella!

Twins have won an Oscar Award only 3x in movie history.

The Epstein twins Phillip and Julius won for co-writing the screenplay of Casablanca (1942) with Howard Koch.

Jack Warner at Warner Studios did not like the twins because of their pranks and work hours, so out of spite, he referred them to the Houe of Un-American Committee, which had already sent the Hollywood Ten to prison for not declaring their political beliefs. They were mostly Hollyood screenplay writers.

When asked on a HUAC questionnaire if the twins had ever been members of a “subversive organization,” the twins replied, “Yes. Warner Brothers.”

Philip died of cancer that year in 1952. He was also the grandfather of Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs curse-breaking World Series winning GM Theo Epstein (birthday today). Julius died one day after Theo’s birthday in 2000.

Twins Richard and Paul Sylbert won Oscars for 3 different movies, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and Dick Tracy, and Heaven Can Wait (1978).

Twins Wolfgang and Christoph Lauenstein won an Oscar for their short Balance (1989).

I’m at my fishing camp with the boys so my answers are a combined consensus.

There were many pretty good movies this year, and “Tenet” is definitely one of them. But if you can give it the time, the last 20 minutes are some of the most bafflingly delightful ultra-time-travel scenes you will ever see. Thanks for your help with the ballot, Greg... Dan
