‘Dark Knight,’ ‘Shrek,’ ‘Grease,’ ‘Blues Brothers’ Added to National Film Registry https://t.co/TuQ4PWUQ63— Variety (@Variety) December 14, 2020
I'm surprised it took this long for The Dark Knight...also Shrek. Considering Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names to the National Film Registry 25 motion pictures that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. The films must be at least 10 years old, and Shrek and The Dark Knight have been over 10 years old for a while.
Also included were “Lillies of the Field,” (Ft. Sidney Poitier as the first black person to win the Best Actor Oscar), “The Hurt Locker,” (Ft. Kathryn Bigelow, the only woman so far to win Best Director), “A Clockwork Orange,” & “The Joy Luck Club”.
There are also another 17 films that have been added at the source.
