Happy Anniversary, IMDB!

posted by Nell Minow

I can’t remember the last time I went a whole day without consulting the Internet Movie Database. Everything you want to know about a movie’s credits is there and I enjoy the user comments about the films as much as I do the opportunity to satisfy my “I know I’ve seen that guy before” curiosity about character actors and “wow, what else has that director done that I can watch” questions to build my Netflix queue. Thanks to my iPhone app, the IMDB is always with me. Today, the IMDB celebrates its 20th anniversary. Check out their best “best of” lists, including the top character actors, female television roles, and 90’s noirs. And check out the video with stars like Oliver Stone, Danny DeVito, Susan Sarandon, and Kevin Spacey wishing IMDB a happy anniversary.
