Awesome: Roger Ebert
  • In 1975, the same year he was teamed with Gene Siskel on Chicago television, Roger Ebert became the first journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for film criticism.note 
  • His reviews of bad movies can achieve legendary status. One of the best examples is his review of Deuce Bigalow European Gigolo.
    "But Schneider is correct, and Patrick Goldstein has not yet won a Pulitzer Prize. Therefore, Goldstein is not qualified to complain that Columbia financed Deuce Bigalow European Gigolo while passing on the opportunity to participate in Million Dollar Baby, Ray, The Aviator, Sideways and Finding Neverland. As chance would have it, I have won the Pulitzer Prize, and so I am qualified. Speaking in my official capacity as a Pulitzer Prize winner, Mr. Schneider, your movie sucks."
  • His war of words due to panning The Brown Bunny. At one point in the screening, he even began singing out loud "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head"!
  • This instance at Sundance.
