I will, proudly and by preference, do at least one picture a year for King Brothers, and I will try to make it the best picture that I have it in me to do. ~ Dalton Trumbo
Best Picture quotes by Dalton Trumbo
Virtually always I get my best pictures when everybody thinks the shoot's done. ~ Jock Sturges
Best Picture quotes by Jock Sturges
You don't have to pose your camera. The pictures are there, and you just take them. The truth is the best picture, the best propaganda. (On the Spanish Civil War, 1937) ~ Robert Capa
Best Picture quotes by Robert Capa
My nominee for Best Picture of the year - maybe the best picture ever, because it's essentially made up of and is an ecstatic love letter to all other movies - is Christian Marclay's endlessly enticing must-see masterpiece 'The Clock.' ~ Jerry Saltz
Best Picture quotes by Jerry Saltz
The very best pictures adapt themselves to many changes in meaning. ~ John Szarkowski
Best Picture quotes by John Szarkowski
The best picture has not yet been painted; the greatest poem is still unsung; the mightiest novel remains to be written; the divinest music has not been conceived, even by Bach. In science, probably ninety-nine percent of the knowable has not yet been discovered. ~ Lincoln Steffens
Best Picture quotes by Lincoln Steffens
Beauty and the Beast became the first animated feature ever nominated for best picture. ~ Leonard Maltin
Best Picture quotes by Leonard Maltin
One of the things you have to be able to do, as a comic strip artist, is to draw things repeatedly from a variety of angles, so you need references, and you find the best picture you can. ~ Dave Gibbons
Best Picture quotes by Dave Gibbons
My best days do seem like a distillation of all that was best about school. Write a story! Paint a picture! Write a poem! Make a print! ~ Mark Haddon
Best Picture quotes by Mark Haddon
'Beatrice Cenci' was an amazing film. If it were released today it'd win Best Picture. It's so well done, it's so contemporary, and the filmmaking is so smart. ~ Eli Roth
Best Picture quotes by Eli Roth
First one gives off his best picture, the bright and finished product mended with bluff and falsehood and humor. Then more details are required and one paints a second portrait, and third
before long the best lines cancel out
and the secret is exposed at last; the planes of the picture have intermingled and given us away, and though we paint and paint we can no longer sell a picture. We must be satisfied with hoping such fatuous accounts of ourselves as we make to our wives and children and business associates are accepted as true. ~ F Scott Fitzgerald
Best Picture quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
That is the best picture of what the incarnation means when we look at in its true context. For that is what happened in Jesus Christ from his birth to his resurrection. The Son of God entered into our broken, Fallen, alienated human existence. He took upon himself our fallen flesh. He stood in Adam's shoes, in Israel's shoes, in our shoes, and he steadfastly refused to be Adam, He refused to be Israel. He refused to be what we are. ~ C. Baxter Kruger
Best Picture quotes by C. Baxter Kruger
When audiences rejected Ace in the Hole, Wilder said: "F*** them all. It's the best picture I ever made. ~ Anupama Chopra
Best Picture quotes by Anupama Chopra
You can't reinvent the wheel. You've got to just take the best from all the other shows and try to make it work, because there's the "live show Gods" that dictate if there are going to be any surprises, if there's a very commercial film that's a Best Picture. There are a lot of things that are out of my control, but I do my best. ~ Brett Ratner
Best Picture quotes by Brett Ratner
The Academy Awards ceremony is designed to be without irony, but Chris Rock supplied it anyway with filmed movie-theater interviews with black men and women who had never heard of the movies nominated for Best Picture. ~ Suzanne Fields
Best Picture quotes by Suzanne Fields
I think they're bogus, honestly. How utter garbage like Crash and Million Dollar Baby can win best picture, where true works of art such as Garden State go untouched is beyond me. It just proves how close-minded America really is, and I refuse to take part in it. ~ Zach Braff
Best Picture quotes by Zach Braff
The best picture is around the corner. Like prosperity. ~ Ansel Adams
Best Picture quotes by Ansel Adams
Our best pictures happen by grace. ~ Joyce Tenneson
Best Picture quotes by Joyce Tenneson
The only one that I have to go and see is Brooklyn. I was surprised to see it get the best picture nod, but Saorise Ronan, she's very mesmerizing; she has probably the most piercing set of eyes in Hollywood. ~ Bun B.
Best Picture quotes by Bun B.
To get the best picture of a captured prisoner, you have to get him just as he is captured. The expression he wears then is lost forever ... The human mechanism is remarkably recuperative. A half hour later, the expressions are gone, the faces have changed. The mother with the dead baby in her arms does not look griefstruck anymore, no matter what she feels. ~ Horst Faas
Best Picture quotes by Horst Faas
Someone who directs a film, they have to see the overall picture, and they have to get the best performances out of the actors. ~ Joshua Bell
Best Picture quotes by Joshua Bell
My first wedding was 15 people at our condo. The second was maybe about a hundred people at this fabulous casino. And you know what? I have almost no pictures of the second one, because I put disposable cameras on the tables, because everyone said, "The best pictures are the most candid! The best pictures are the ones people just take!" So, I put disposable cameras on the tables, and guess what? There were so many kids there that those cameras were stomped on. I had so many pictures of the floor, of people's eyes, of someone's finger. ~ Viola Davis
Best Picture quotes by Viola Davis
The Los Angeles Citizen-News (5/29/58) concurred, but felt the picture had more serious problems in the story department: Unfortunately, the story, as adapted for the screen comes off less praiseworthy, for most of the time the picture is not a little confusing. The story line is not easy to follow. ... Vertigo is technically a topnotch film. Storywise, little can be said. Hitchcock does as well as he can, considering the script, in a directorial capacity. Vertigo is not his best picture. ~ Dan Auiler
Best Picture quotes by Dan Auiler
The meaning of quality in photography's best pictures lies written in the language of vision. That language is learned by chance, not system. ~ Walker Evans
Best Picture quotes by Walker Evans
The human body is the best picture of the human soul. ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein
Best Picture quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Guys, IMDB right there, 62 movies, a ton of success, I mean, come on bro, I won best picture at 20. I wasn't even trying. ~ Charlie Sheen
Best Picture quotes by Charlie Sheen
A photographer's best pictures are from deep inside him, and also some of the worst. Some photographers enjoy distinguished careers without ever taking personal photographs. Others, audaciously and arrogantly and courageously discharge their most private feelings through photography. Trouble is, sometimes it all adds up to baloney. ~ Burk Uzzle
Best Picture quotes by Burk Uzzle
The best pictures are always those one dreams of when one is smoking a pipe in bed, but which never get done. But still one ought to try, however incompetent one may feel before the unspeakable perfection and radiant splendour of nature. ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Best Picture quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
I always think, 'What does this picture mean? What's the best place to put my camera? Do I have anything extra in the picture, things in the background that will distract? Am I in the basic position that will give the essential things for this picture but not too much?' ~ Mary Ellen Mark
Best Picture quotes by Mary Ellen Mark
'Birdman' is basically 'All About Eve' - the 1950 comedy about rehearsal rivalries in a Broadway show, and another Best Picture laureate - reimagined as a Batman suicide mission. The movie couldn't be actor-ier. ~ Richard Corliss
Best Picture quotes by Richard Corliss
Most comedy is not very ambitious. You probably can't name more than a handful of comedies that would qualify for Best Picture. ~ Harold Ramis
Best Picture quotes by Harold Ramis
Those who are not very concerned with art want poems or pictures to record for them something they already know - as one might want a picture of a place he loves. ~ George Oppen
Best Picture quotes by George Oppen
I do miss you so much, but it gets harder and harder to keep you in my mind. You re like a ghost almost, fading in the light of dawn. Sometimes I close my eyes and try to summon up your face and I cant see you anymore. Then at other times I hear your voice so clearly I turn round expecting to see you standing there, and every time it happens there's the same pang of loss. Cant you send me a sketch of where you are? It would help me a lot if I could picture you somewhere definite, not just have letters dropping in from outer space. Paul ~ Pat Barker
Best Picture quotes by Pat Barker
A study of animal communities has this advantage: they are merely what they are, for anyone to see who will and can look clearly; they cannot complicate the picture by worded idealisms, by saying one thing and being another; here the struggle is unmasked and the beauty is unmasked. ~ John Steinbeck
Best Picture quotes by John Steinbeck
What we call music in our everyday language is only a miniature, which our intelligence has grasped from that music or harmony of the whole universe which is working behind everything, and which is the source and origin of nature. It is because of this that the wise of all ages have considered music to be a sacred art. For in music the seer can see the picture of the whole universe; and the wise can interpret the secret and nature of the working of the whole universe in the realm of music. ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan
Best Picture quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
So next time you go to a museum, keep your eyes open; you never know what you will see. ~ Isaac Du Toit
Best Picture quotes by Isaac Du Toit
If you make believe that ten guys in pin-striped suits are back in a kindergarten class playing with building blocks, you'll get a rough picture of what life in a corporation is like. ~ Lee Iacocca
Best Picture quotes by Lee Iacocca
In this metaphor we actually have a picture of the computational universe, a metaphor which I hope to make scientifically precise as part of a research program. ~ Seth Lloyd
Best Picture quotes by Seth Lloyd
Dear Alec and Magnus, How are you? Everything's just fine here. Thanks for you postcard with the picture of the Taj Mahal. It looks nice. Disregard my last few postcards. I see I overdid it. To make it up to you, I'm going to redecorate Magnus's loft for free. -Izzy ~ Cassandra Clare
Best Picture quotes by Cassandra Clare
God promises that no matter how dismal the picture, He will take our problem and turn it into an opportunity for our growth. ~ Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson
Best Picture quotes by Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson
Start with a picture of your goal as already achieved in the future, and work back to the present. Imagine the steps that you would have taken to get from where you are now to where you want to be. ~ Brian Tracy
Best Picture quotes by Brian Tracy
This is exactly the point Jesus reiterates in Matthew 23:23, where he exhorts the people to keep "the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness," without neglecting the responsibility they have to tithe their mint, dill, and cumin. Clearly, Jesus doesn't want us to keep the little commandments in Scripture and miss the big stuff, but neither does he allow us to overlook the smallest parts so long as we get the big picture right. He expects obedience to the spirit of the law and to the letter. Our Messiah sees himself as an expositor of Scripture, but never a corrector of Scripture. He fulfills it, but never falsifies it. He turns away wrong interpretations of Scripture, but insists there is nothing wrong with Scripture, down to the crossing of t's and dotting of i's. ~ Kevin DeYoung
Best Picture quotes by Kevin DeYoung
As Peter Bogdanovich would say of Paper Moon: Ryan's wonderful in it, and he sat there and watched the kid steal the picture. ~ Tatum O'Neal
Best Picture quotes by Tatum O'Neal
She heard a crash from the galley as soon as she pulled it open. Peering down the hallway, she saw Wolf hunkered over a counter, holding a tin can.
Stepping into the galley's light, Scarlet saw that the can was labeled with a picture of cartoon-red tomatoes. Judging from the enormous dents in its side, Wolf had been trying to open it with a meat tenderizer.
He glanced up at her, and she was glad that she wasn't the only one red faced. "Why would they put food in here if they were going to make it so hard to open?"
She bit her lip against a weak smile, not sure if it was from pity or amusement. "Did you try a can opener? ~ Marissa Meyer
Best Picture quotes by Marissa Meyer
Does one love a statue?" she demanded. "Shall I caress a picture? Shall I rain tears or kisses over the mere semblance of a life that does not live, shall I fondle hands that never return my clasp? Love! Love is in my heart -yes! like a shut-up fire in a tomb,but you hold the key, and the flame dies for want of air. ~ Marie Corelli
Best Picture quotes by Marie Corelli
One always has to spoil a picture a little bit, in order to finish it. ~ Eugene Delacroix
Best Picture quotes by Eugene Delacroix
We've seen the uproars around the world concerning cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammad. Anyone who does not think comic strips are relevant never had a fatwa put on him/her for drawing a picture. ~ Elayne Boosler
Best Picture quotes by Elayne Boosler
If I do a picture, I want the audience to be the people I was just packed against on the subway or on the street, walking on Fourteenth Street. I don't want it to be some narrow public that I myself feel alienated from. ~ Eric Drooker
Best Picture quotes by Eric Drooker
I could show you a picture right now where I look like something from The Hills Have Eyes. Talk about an awkward stage. Puberty was not good at all. ~ Jacob Artist
Best Picture quotes by Jacob Artist
Every time the woman turned her head, it was like she was posing for a picture with an Instagram setting that filtered out humility. ~ Tara Altebrando
Best Picture quotes by Tara Altebrando
What, suddenly I am a figure from an ancient bit of nursery nonsense?" He lifted a forepaw and began chewing his toes, the picture of dismissive indifference. "And the next egg you come across you'll ask, 'Tell me, sir, what were you doing up on that wall anyway?'"
"Are you ashamed to answer?"
"I am ashamed of nothing. I am a cat." The cat gracefully placed his paw next to the other, sitting as prim as a perfect statue. ~ Anne Elisabeth Stengl
Best Picture quotes by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see. ~ John Tuley
Best Picture quotes by John Tuley
I had turned away from the picture and was going back to the world where events move, men change, light flickers, life flows in a clear stream, no matter whether over mud or over stones. ~ Joseph Conrad
Best Picture quotes by Joseph Conrad
Dreams are like commercials, but her dreams are picture perfect ... ~ Jack Johnson
Best Picture quotes by Jack Johnson
Yeah, in my scripts, I don't tend to describe landscape too clearly because I like to keep it really basic and sort of let people paint their own picture. I don't find it helpful to spend a page describing a setting, except for maybe a few key things. ~ Sean Durkin
Best Picture quotes by Sean Durkin
When you're younger you just take it as a given that things will fall into place on their own. Relationships, family, careers, the whole deal. They might not come as you picture them, but they come in some form. You just never figure that they might not come at all. And then you hit thirty and ... shit! You suddenly realize that they're not necessarily coming and you panic. ~ Jonathan Tropper
Best Picture quotes by Jonathan Tropper
Truth be known, I found it right flatterin'. And, it gives me the confidence tah ask ya out for Saturday."
My head snapped up and my cheeks burned. "Wha...?!" Picture of eloquence. That's me.
"Saturday. A date. You, me, dinner? Yah've heard of this concept, yeah? ~ Stacey Rourke
Best Picture quotes by Stacey Rourke
I was first published in the newspaper put out by School of The Art Institute of Chicago, where I was a student. I wince to read that story nowadays, but I published it with an odd photo I'd found in a junk shop, and at least I still like the picture. I had a few things in the school paper, and then I got published in a small literary magazine. I hoped I would one day get published in The New Yorker, but I never allowed myself to actually believe it. Getting published is one of those things that feels just as good as you'd hoped it would. ~ David Sedaris
Best Picture quotes by David Sedaris
Woman, in the picture language of mythology, represents the totality of what can be known. The hero is the one who comes to know ... And if he can match her import, the two, the knower and the known, will be released from every limitation ... The hero who can take her as she is, without undue commotion but with the kindness and assurance she requires, is potentially the king, the incarnate god, of her created world. ~ Joseph Campbell
Best Picture quotes by Joseph Campbell
It's hard to see the whole picture when you are in the frame. ~ Les Brown
Best Picture quotes by Les Brown
By the time I'm done," I said, "that picture will win you this election."
There was a long moment of silence, and then Emilia tossed her ponytail over her shoulders. "There's no way you're that good."
I smiled. "Try me. ~ Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Best Picture quotes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Once we step out of the picture which we have made ourselves part of, if only temporarily, our life changes. ~ Art Hochberg
Best Picture quotes by Art Hochberg
What a splendid thing is literature, what a splendid thing! It strengthens and instructs the heart of man. Literature is a sort of picture. It connotes at once passion, expression, fine criticism, good learning, and a document. ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Best Picture quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
If you, like me, are essentially a city person, then the chances are that when you imagine a wood you picture a simple thing: matching green trees in even rows, a soft carpet of dead leaves or pine needles, orderly as a child's drawing. Possibly those earnestly efficient man-made woods are in fact like that; I wouldn't know. ~ Tana French
Best Picture quotes by Tana French
By showing a picture, you're showing an x-ray of your heart. ~ Ralph Steiner
Best Picture quotes by Ralph Steiner
I can almost picture the disciples faces. No, not the drink-my-blood speech! We'll never get on the list of fastest-growing movements if you keep asking them to eat you! ~ David Platt
Best Picture quotes by David Platt
The child affixes one of her little pictures to my refrigerator.
She asks, Can you detect the radiation?

There is a house, one tree, and grass in dark slashes. A sun
shining. Beneath, in her child letters, she has written Chernobyl.

At kindergarten they must be having nuclear energy week.

One could look at the picture and say everything is in order.
No, I say, I cannot see the radiation.

The radiation poison, she says, sits
inside the apple and the apple looks pretty. Then singsongs,

Bury the apple and bury the shovel that buried the apple
and put the apple-burier person in a closet forever.

We are both thinking Then bury the burier.
Both thinking of her picture with no people.

The poison sits inside the people and the people
still look pretty, she says. ~ Darcie Dennigan
Best Picture quotes by Darcie Dennigan
Picture and sculpture are the celebrations and festivities of form. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Best Picture quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you look at that nature world it becomes an icon, it becomes a holy picture that speaks of the origins of the world. Almost every mythology sees the origins of life coming out of water. And, curiously, that's true. It's amusing that the origin of life out of water is in myths and then again, finally, in science, we find the same thing. It's exactly so. ~ Joseph Campbell
Best Picture quotes by Joseph Campbell
I am writing this because on that night of the tenth of May in the 1,940th year of Our Lord, Churchill stood for more than England. Millions of people, especially across Europe, recognized him now as the champion of their hopes. (In faraway Bengal India there was at least one man, that admirably independent writer and thinker, Nirad Chaudhuri, who fastened Churchill's picture on the wall of his room the next day.) Churchill was _the_ opponent of Hitler, the incarnation of the reaction to Hitler, the incarnation of the resistance of an old world, of old freedoms, of old standards against a man incarnating a force that was frighteningly efficient, brutal, and new. ~ John Lukacs
Best Picture quotes by John Lukacs
What would you concede if it didn't matter who got the credit? What would no longer matter if you were not hostage to the accomplishment tally? How much peace could you claim by trusting that the choices that you made for goodness would ultimately turn out right? Just picture the freedom that comes with living a surrendered life. ~ James Martin
Best Picture quotes by James Martin
Because I am a part of the Big Picture, I do matter and substantially so. Because I am only a part, however, I am rightly situated off to stage right - and happily so. What freedom there is in such truth! We are inherently important and included, yet not burdened with manufacturing or sustaining that private importance. Our dignity is given by God, and we are freed from ourselves! ~ Richard Rohr
Best Picture quotes by Richard Rohr
The systems of stereotypes may be the core of our personal tradition, the defenses of our position in society. They are an ordered more or less consistent picture of the world, to which our habits, our tastes, our capacities, our comforts and our hopes have adjusted themselves. They may not be a complete picture of the world, but they are a picture of a possible world to which we are adapted. In that world, people and things have their well-known places, and do certain expected things. We feel at home there. We fit in. We are members.
[ ... ]
It is not merely a short cut. It is all these things and something more. It is the guarantee of our self-respect; it is the projection upon the world of our own sense or our own value, our own position, and our own rights. [ ... ] They are the fortress of our traditions, and behind its defenses we can continue to feel ourselves safe in the position we occupy. ~ Walter Lippmann
Best Picture quotes by Walter Lippmann
I always have a good reason for taking something out but I never have one for putting something in. And I don't want to, because that means that the picture is being painted predigested. ~ Robert Rauschenberg
Best Picture quotes by Robert Rauschenberg
She had a picture of a llama, so under it I wrote, "I didn't know you knew my brother. ~ Jarod Kintz
