Check out my Posts: Peter’s posts


Peter has been a film lover since seeing his first film, the appropriately titled Welcome Stranger, at the age of 4. He has been viewing films at the rate of five or more per week for most of his life. By the age of 16 he already had his own film awards, called the Patrician Awards, a play on his last name. His awards are called Oscar Shouldabeens on the UAAADB.

Known as Big Magilla on the UAADB since 1998, Peter has been member of the Online Film and Television Academy almost since its inception, and a member of the Executive Committee for almost as long. The retired banker is also the Editor-in-Chief of his community newspaper in Brick, New Jersey, The Wedgewood Place Chronicle as well as the builder and administrator of the community’s website.

Peter is delighted to share his knowledge of films and film history in his weekly DVD Report, as well as his weekly Oscar Profile.

  1. Hi Peter,

    we are representing few foreign Oscar entries and are wondering based on what criteria you nominate the oscar contenders.
    For example one of our films, Slovakian Broken Promise is in your oscar “it” list. .
    Tomorrow at 8pm we are having a screening of Bulgarian film “The World is Big and Salvation Lurks Around the Corner” and would like to see you if you or your colleagues are available.
