    Default announcing the first annual Golden gCaptain film award nominees

    with the Golden Globes being held last night it is only fitting and proper to announce the first annual Golden gCaptain film award nominees today:


    in the category of best actor to play a shipmaster/commanding officer in a film I nominate the late great Jack Hawkins as Cmdr. Erikson in the movie "The Cruel Sea"



    In the category of best actor to portray a chief mate/executive officer is of course the stupendous and dead Humphrey Bogart as Joe Rossi in "Action in the North Atlantic"



    and lastly, in the category of the best actor to play a chief engineer is the likewise deceased but wonderful James Doohan as Montgomery Scott in all kinds of Star Trek episodes and films





    Worst actor categories have too many possible nominees but will be forthcoming soon.


    The nomination committee (made up of yours truly) is open to taking your suggestions now...

    What, no chance for the late Leslie Nielsen this year? Have we had enough of overturned passenger liners?

    He's better looking than Shittino, at any rate.

    My nominations include:

    John Wayne as Capt. Karl Ehrlich in "The Sea Chase" (or was it the "Wake Of the Sea Witch"?) where our hero Capt. Ehrlich has the magic sextant that shows Lat & Long without doing the math.

    For the black gang, the nomination is William Bendix as Hank Smith, a brutish stoker on board a freighter in the classic, "The Hairy Ape".

    Best o'luck to our nominees.

    What about Robert Mitchum as Capt Murrell USNR in "The Enemy Below"? He told his XO that he was the Chief Mate of a merchant ship before the war.

    The committee will accept the nomination purely because he is John Wayne but while the Duke was many men, a ship master is not one.

    For the black gang, the nomination is William Bendix as Hank Smith, a brutish stoker on board a freighter in the classic, "The Hairy Ape".
    of course a hitherto unknown film rarely seen by man today and for good reason too! I think this nomination will be held for consideration by the committee for inclusion in a category other than "best" engineer

    the committee feels the whole film to be highly squishy with matching performances. When compared with "The Cruel Sea", :The Enemy Below" is used dishwater and the committee will not include this nominee.

    sorry...

    For engineers, you have to put in Steve McQueen in The Sand Pebbles and John Qualen in The Sea Chase.
