To this day I still can't believe The Color Purple didn't win one single Oscar, but I'm including it in my movie cocktail tributes this year for three reasons. First, purple is my Oscar party color theme. Second, it has one of my all time favorite movie quotes:
"I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it" ~ Shug.
