(smartplaylist) update Oscars 2018-2020
#1
I find tags much easier to handle these smaller sized lists, but having a smartplaylist adds some flexibility if you haven't set-up nodes yet. 

If your movie name doesn't match the title, you'll have to edit your movie title or the listing in the smartplaylist for it to show up. I didn't use the exclusion rule to exclude wrong dates or sets etc, feel free to edit or improve, and if you do; re-post with links, I don't think that pastebin.com will hold stuff beyond 30 days.

Save this as a UTF-8 called "Oscar Winners.xsp" with your favourite editor and place it in the Userdata (wiki) folder playlists/video, enter Kodi and select the listing in playlists (you can make this a favourite, or point at it with a 'Node'). Obviously if you don't have the movie in your personal library, it isn't going to show up.

@PatK, here is the link for the Oscars smartplaylists.  All categories except Documentaries and Shorts are there, as well as a consolidated winners list similar to your playlist.  Hope this is useful.

What do you use for tagging? The Kodi GUI or an external app?

What a fabulous set of smartplaylists, you've made my day! or should I say saved two Smile I've got shorts all in one and documentaries are getting seriously out of hand and relegated to  public domain drives as file mode (yup; I'n a nut case for those). Regarding your query on tagging;  I'm using 'manage tags' 310752 (thread) it throws up the tag option in the context menu, probably wouldn't bother using tags without some sort of easy way.

Many thanks this is a great way to enrich the usefulness of the library.

Thanks for the tip on tags! I will start using that addon.

Great stuff, I had already updated after the awards (I have a home page direct link to them) but it's nice to see this post; even if I had to update my rar archiver Smile I'm sure there will be many appreciative users.

I love the ideas brought forward, this update might satisfy a some of the points brought up by chrissix

Hi Bart,
Do you know if there is way to avoid getting movies included that have the same title? 
A good example is the Best Picture for 1959 (Ben-Hur), which obviously shares the same title with the 2016 remake.
I have a few exceptions like this, but I wasn't sure if there was an additional rule that could be used to only show the actual Oscar winning title in these instances, ie using the above example only show Ben-Hur for the year 1959?

Ooops me bad, I see what you mean now. The 2016 never won an oscar so you do not want that showing.

Edited for not knowing the reboot was a flop and did not win any oscars
Current FAVOURITE skin : Titan Bingie. I also love Artic Zephyr 2 and Aura
Movie Count : 14,615 TV Count : 33 (always changing as no dedicated TV show computer as yet) Music Count : Not used anymore

@Dumyat, I do not know of any automated way.  What I do for my own use (I have many movies with the same name, and some of them have won Oscars, other not), is that I change the title of the movie and append the year to it.  

Take the case of Little Women: the 1933 version won an Oscar, and so did the 2019 version, but not any of the other versions (2018, one from the 40s, another one from the 50s, etc.)

So, for this case, the original 1933 movie I have in my collection (and in any playlist then) as Little Women, and the 2019 version I have as Little Women 2019.  I change that title with the media manager that I use, but you could also do it wih script.metedata.editor, for example.

In my playlists you will probably find more than one example like that.  

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Bart

Hi Bart,
Yeah, I actually had the same thought process after I made my post. I've read briefly in the past about combining playlists, but never actually tried to create one. I will maybe read up further and see what the functionality of combined lists do. Failing that, amending the title is a good solution.  Smile
Cheers

Update: Combined list didn't really work as expected. Also asked over at the TMDB site why Awards were not included in their data. Got a reply to say that Awards and nomination info is scheduled to be added in Q2 this year. Hopefully that data could then be used to create future Awards Playlists....
