A Little Housekeeping: Katie Award Nominees For The Silent Era (Movies Released Prior To August 1, 1927)

I've decided for future Katie Awards, rather than announce the winners first and then write essays about them after, I'll announce the nominees first and then write essays as I announce each winner. Which makes sense, but I am slow to figure these things out.

For those of you keeping score at home, these were the Katie Award nominees for Career Achievement during the Silent Era. I'll list the nominees for 1927-28 (even though you've already seen the winners and we're half way through the essays) in my next post.

Battleship Potemkin
The Big Parade
The General

The Gold Rush


The Thief Of Bagdad

John Barrymore

Lon Chaney

Charles Chaplin

Douglas Fairbanks

Emil Jannings
