Please add the ability to assign awards to films and filter on them. Best picture, actor, actress, director, etc.
For example, I would like to watch all the best picture recipients that I haven't already seen.

There is already a plugin that does what you're asking for I think.  It's the "Awards / Episode Viewer" plugin.  Just go to the menus up above, click on "downloads", then click on "Plugins".  You can find it there.

Besides installing a plug-in, you can always use tags, though it could get a little complicated if you want to track a lot of different awards.

Yes. Tags will do the trick. I'm populating Best picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, cinematography and musical score for all films made on/after 1930. Too bad there's no way to share it.

I believe the plugin I mentioned has a data file that has this stuff already entered for you.  With that said, I've never used the plugin myself (sorry Tom  ).  It may be overkill for your needs, but if data entry is an unpleasant task, there's another option.

But will the plug-in allow me to filter? Like, "show me all the Best Picture DVD's"?

No idea.  As I said, I don't use the plugin.  I was only mentioning it because they seem to have around 75 different award ceremonies represented from around the world.  I don't know if it allows filtering however.

No, the Plugin can't used for filtering. But it offers a very nice drill down feature. It's worth an evaluation...

The only problem, I am struggling with, the underlying database disappears over the time. Every now and then I have to restore it. I was not able to find the reason for this behaviour
