Today's featured list submissions

This star symbolizes the featured content on Wikipedia.

Lists suggested here must be featured lists that have not previously appeared on the main page.

Today's featured list launched in June 2011, initially on each Monday. In January 2014 it was agreed to expand to appear twice a week. The lists will be selected by the FL director, based on the consensus of the community.

To submit a list for main page consideration, you simply need to draft a short summary of the list, in approximately 1000 characters, along with a relevant image from the list itself, using the template provided below. Should you need any assistance using the template, feel free to ask for help on the talk page. If you are nominating a list submitted by someone else, consider notifying the significant contributor(s) with {{subst:tfln|NAME OF LIST}} ~~~~

The community will review submissions, and suggest improvements where appropriate. If a blurb receives broad support, and there are no actionable objections, one of the directors will confirm that it has been accepted for main page submission. Please note there should be no more than fifteen nominations listed here at any one time.

In rare circumstances, the directors reserve the right to exclude a list from main page consideration, a practice consistent with other main page sections such as Today's featured article and Picture of the day. Should this ever happen, a detailed explanation will be given.

The 70th Academy Awards ceremony, organized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), took place on March 23, 1998, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories honoring films released in 1997. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, was produced by Gil Cates and directed by Louis J. Horvitz. Actor Billy Crystal hosted for the fifth time, having last emceed the previous year's ceremony. Titanic received a record-tying 14 nominations and also won a record-tying eleven awards including Best Picture and Best Director for James Cameron (pictured). The telecast garnered more than 57 million viewers in the United States, making it the most watched Oscars broadcast in history. (Full list...)

I would like this list to be posted on March 5 since the 90th Academy Awards are scheduled for March 4 (or March 5 01:30 UTC), and it will have been 20 years since this particular ceremony occurred.

Shahid Kapoor filmography

Shahid Kapoor
Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor's filmography includes starring roles in Hindi films, hosting duties for award ceremonies, and music video appearances. As a dancer in Shiamak Davar's institute, Kapoor made uncredited appearances as a background dancer in the films Dil To Pagal Hai (1997) and Taal (1999). He also appeared in several music videos, including one for the singer Kumar Sanu, before making his acting debut with a lead role in Ken Ghosh's romantic comedy Ishq Vishk (2003). He followed it by playing a prospective groom in Vivah (2006) and an uptight businessman in Jab We Met (2007). In 2009, Kapoor portrayed twin brothers, one with a lisp and the other with a stutter, in Vishal Bhardwaj's acclaimed caper thriller Kaminey. After a series of commercial failures, he starred in the 2013 action-drama R... Rajkumar, and followed it by playing the title character in Bhardwaj's Haider (2014), an adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet, which won him the Filmfare Award for Best Actor. In 2016, he played a rockstar addicted to drugs in Udta Punjab, for which he won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor. Kapoor has hosted eight award ceremonies, and in 2015 he featured as a talent judge on the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded. (Full list...)

25th February (Kapoor's birthday) will be a good day to feature this. Krimuk2.0 (talk) 07:08, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

  • @Krimuk2.0: February 25 is a Sunday, and TFL only runs on Mondays and Fridays. Therefore, we cannot run the list on Kapoor's birthday. We can have it appear the day after his birthday (February 26) if you'd like. Let me know what you think of this idea. Giants2008 (Talk) 23:35, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh, alright. The day after then. Thanks. :) --Krimuk2.0 (talk) 19:33, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

The Indian National Defence Academy (NDA) is the joint services academy of the Indian Armed Forces, where cadets of the three armed forces (the Army, the Navy and the Air Force) train together before beginning pre-commission training at their respective service academies (Indian Military Academy, Indian Naval Academy, and Air Force Academy, for army, navy, and air force cadets respectively). Established in 1954 and located in vicinity of Khadakwasla Dam, near Pune, it is the world's first tri-service academy. The alumni of National Defence Academy have led and participated in every major conflict in which the Indian Armed Forces have been called into action since the academy was founded.

List of songs recorded by Guillemots

More than 80 songs have been recorded by the indie rock band Guillemots for their four studio albums and other official releases. The band was formed in November 2004, with their debut album—Through the Windowpane—being released in July 2006. The record contained twelve original songs, of which nine were written by lead singer Fyfe Dangerfield. In April 2008, the band released their second album, Red. This album's songs were more pop-orientated than their debut's, and were written by all four members of the group. The band's third album, Walk the River, was released in April 2011, and was the first Guillemots record to feature neither a strings nor brass section. Guillemots have also recorded songs that have not been included on their official releases. During a series of live shows in 2006, the group featured in their set lists songs that had not formed part of their debut. One such track, "21st May", was described by The Times as "gleefully [marrying] a hip-shaking reggae beat to jazz sax". (Full list...)

I'd like to suggest featuring this on 21st May, for what I hope are obvious reasons. I see that a similar list has also been submitted recently. Since that seems to have no associated date, could it please be run a.s.a.p., so that this one can be run in May? Thanks, A Thousand Doors (talk | contribs) 13:31, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
