And the Award for Best Picture Movie Mistake Goes to…

Our pal Jon Sandys, the UK-based webmaster of moviemistakes.com, was kind enough to send us a taste of some of the glorious gaffes gracing this Sunday’s Oscar-nominated films. Django Unchained is the current Best Picture leader with 26 mistakes spotted by website readers while The Avengers ranks as the most mistake-ridden nominee of all with 34 bloopers.

“Mistakes don’t stop them being great films or audiences loving them,” says Sandys, who notes that 1998 Best Picture winner Titanic survived a 260+ tally. “Mistakes are just fun things to notice.” Here are a few of FishbowlLA’s favorite Best Picture slips:

Argo: Ben Affleck is supposedly in 1980 but is shown wearing a Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller (pictured), which wasn’t released until 2008.

Did you know more than a thousand bloopers have been thrown down at the feet of James Bond over the course of his sexy, six-actor adventures?

Neither did we. But on the occasion of today’s 50th anniversary of the gargantuan film franchise, moviemistakes.com webmaster Jon Sandys was kind enough to remind FishbowlLA of that fact, from his home office in Guilford, UK. He’s posted a great re-compilation of Agent 007 (mostly continuity) gaffes.

We asked Sandys to highlight a few of his personal favorites:

The Man with the Golden Gun: “Bond’s fighting with a bad guy, and in the course of the struggle they knock a mirror out of place. Its position shifts to perfectly reflect all the film crew standing there watching the fight.”
