The Apartment (1960) is the first Best Picture Oscar winner to specifically refer to a previous winner, in this case two of them. First Grand Hotel (1932), which Jack Lemmon’s C.C. Baxter attempts to watch on television but is too long delayed because of commercials. Bud’s boss also refers to Bud and Fran having “a lost weekend” together in Bud’s apartment, a reference to director Billy Wilder’s 1945 film and Oscar winner, The Lost Weekend (x).
I’ve been wanting to redraw a scene for forever and I finally decided on a good one

This is one of the greatest comments I’ve received on my art thank you
In my situation, days are like women - each one’s so damn precious, but they all end up leaving you.
"I staggered through my career and came out the other end alive. I made some films that meant something to me. In my opinion, they weren’t all great, and they weren’t all successful, but they sure were ‘me’. And this is what I was going through or thinking or feeling as a director at the time, and I’m very proud of them. A lot of great directors just never had the chance to have their work appreciated and celebrated and watched all these years after they were made. So, man, what do you want out of life? It’s great!" — John Carpenter
