Do you Know? Just what does "OSCARS" stand for?

Orange, Shiny Cucurbitas Are Really Spectacular!

Best Picture:

  • Lord of the Pumpkins: Return of the King In the final installment of this spectacular trilogy, one seed is left from one of the top producing giant pumpkins ever. And, you guessed it. The stellar genetics in this seed results in the king of kings, producing a giant pumpkin of unbelievable weight. Is it the seed from a 723 Bobier, an 846 Calia, or an offspring from a mere average pumpkin?  
  • Boat Trip Jerry decides to join his best friend Nick on a Tropical boat cruise. Trouble begins the minute they climb the gangplank and board the giant pumpkin, converted into a top of the line cruise ship.  A pumpkin boat you ask? It's been done

Honorable Mention:

  • View from the Top Steve's giant pumpkin has broken the world record. If history proves correct (as it has every years for over a decade), Steve will be the reigning Pumpkin King for just one year.....

Best Action Drama:

  • Catch Me If You Can The taunt from Steve, the new world record holder, becomes the rallying cry for all competitors heading towards the Fall weigh-offs.
  • The Hulk Emotionally stunted, a pumpkin plant gets hit by an experimental ray in a freak accident.

Honorable Mention:

  • Lara Croft Pumpkin Raider: The Cradle of Life When Lara uncovers an ancient orange orb that is the map to finding seeds from a one ton pumpkin species, the intrepid tomb raider travels the world in search of the tomb where the seeds are buried.

Best Comedy Film:

  • What a Girl Wants The answer to the question this movie poses is obvious. She wants big, round pumpkins! (he,he,he)
  • Anger Management After a misunderstanding at the local weigh-off escalates out of control, normally mild mannered Dave  is remanded to attend anger management sessions.

Honorable Mention:

  • Cheaper by the Dozen The movie explores a concept we all already know- that the more pumpkins you grow, the happier you are.

Best Animated Movie:

  • Finding Nemo-todes The search for "Nemo", as they are fondly called, takes on hilarious twists and turns out in the garden.

Best Documentary Short Subject:

  • 21 Grams At last, in depth coverage of the tiniest of pumpkins.
  • Analyze That Puzzled by the soil sample test results from your Cooperative Extension Service? Then this documentary is for you.

Best Actor in a Leading Role:

  • Bill Murray, PHD In the movie "Lost in Translation", a chemistry professor is totally confused by a soil analysis report by his own college's CES. (he's in good company)

Best Actress in a Leading Role:

  • Julia S. Quash  Who could help but give a big "Mona Lisa Smile" when you bring a record breaking giant green squash to the fall weighoffs.

Best Horror Flick:

  • 2 Fast 2 Furious Pumped up by a serious over application of secret fertilizers, a giant pumpkin grows faster than a speeding bullet. It soon is the biggest pumpkin ever grown, and is still growing. But in the sudden and shocking conclusion, it's uncontrolled growth results in a grower's worst fears.
  • The Good Thief It's the biggest pumpkin weigh-off in the country. Master grower Bob Lunker has a world record pumpkin. The only problem is someone is bringing a pumpkin even bigger.

Honorable Mention:

  • Jeepers Creepers 2 This time around, the pumpkin eating Squash Vine Borers embark on a voracious feeding frenzy.

Science Fiction:

  • Cold Mountain A woman transforms into a pumpkin killing monster.
