Some thoughts on awards from Ingmar Bergman.

The language is a bit tortured but the point is clear.

"As "Wild Strawberries" didn't compete for "OSCAR" I think it is wrong to nominate the picture and therefor {SIC} I want to return the "CERTIFICATE OF NOMINATION."

"I have found, that the "OSCAR"-nomination is one for the motion picture art humiliating institution and ask you to be released from the attention of the jury for the future.

Later he won 4 awards for Fanny and Alexander.
I don;t think he appeared at the Oscar's hwoever.
I have a vague memory of the CEO of the Swedish Film Institute at the time, Jorn Donner, accepted the Best Foreign Language award.

Best Foreign Language Film (Bergman).
Best Cinematography (Sven Nykvist).
Best Art Direction (Anna Asp, art direction; Susanne Lingheim, set decoration).
Costume Design (Marik Vos-Lundh).
Bergman also was nominated for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

The cards are a reminder that even people not nearby physically are still in a person's heart and mind during the holiday season. Josh has put out two records that have gone multi-platinum already, because his sound is very different from the other options currently available. I think Johnny's music is some of the best ever written and performed in country music.
