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.

American actor Tom Cruise made his debut in the romantic drama Endless Love (1981). His breakthrough role was in the coming-of-age comedy Risky Business (1983), for which he garnered his first Golden Globe Award nomination. In 1986, Cruise played a fighter pilot in Tony Scott's Top Gun, which was the highest grossing film of that year. He portrayed anti-war activist Ron Kovic in Born on the Fourth of the July (1989), for which he received the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama. Three years later, he appeared with Jack Nicholson in the legal drama A Few Good Men (1992). In 1996, Cruise starred as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible, the first film produced by his production company Cruise/Wagner Productions.

For his performance Cruise won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture. (Full list...)

I'd suggest June 26 to coincide with the release of Top Gun: Maverick. Cowlibob (talk) 20:30, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

Just as a note, Top Gun: Maverick is now scheduled for a December 23, 2020 release date. --Ahecht (TALK

A general comment regarding this list: The blurb fails to cover the last 20 years of Cruise's career, which doesn't make sense. In my opinion, the blurb should be reworked to summarize the entire list if this is to be used at TFL. RunningTiger123 (talk) 18:07, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Series title card

The American fantasy comedy television series The Good Place broadcast 53 episodes over four seasons. Created by Michael Schur for NBC, the show focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a recently deceased young woman who wakes up in the afterlife and is sent by Michael (Ted Danson) to "the Good Place", a heaven-like utopia he designed, in reward for her righteous life. First announced as an untitled comedy series based on a pitch by Schur, the first season aired from September 19, 2016, to January 19, 2017. The second season premiered on September 20, 2017, and concluded on February 1, 2018. On September 27 of the same year, the third season began its broadcast, ending on January 24, 2018. The fourth and final season began airing on September 26, 2019, and finished its broadcast on January 30, 2020. During its run, the series was critically acclaimed and earned many awards, including two nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Shout! Factory has distributed DVD releases since October 17, 2017. (Full list...)

Would suggest for 19 September 2022 to line up with the sixth anniversary of the series premiere. Pamzeis (talk) 01:59, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

List of marches composed by John Philip Sousa[edit]

"The Stars and Stripes Forever"

The American composer John Philip Sousa is best known for his American military marches, of which he composed 136 between 1873 and 1932. He derived few of his marches from his other musical compositions such as melodies and operettas. "The Stars and Stripes Forever" is considered Sousa's most famous composition. A British journalist named Sousa "The March King", in comparison to "The Waltz King" — Johann Strauss II. However, not all of Sousa's marches had the same level of public appeal. Some of his early marches are lesser known and rarely performed. He served as leader of the United States Marine Band from 1880 to 1892, and performed at the inaugural balls of President James A. Garfield and Benjamin Harrison. In 1987, "The Stars and Stripes Forever" was made the national march of the United States, by an act of Congress. The "U.S. Field Artillery" is the official march of the United States Army. After leaving the Marine Band, he formed a civilian band and composed various marches in the subsequent 39 years.

  • Date request – It would be the best, if this list appears as TFL on July 4, 2022 (Monday, Independence Day (United States)). Please also see this proposal (User:Kavyansh.Singh/sandbox). – Kavyansh.Singh (talk) 13:40, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

Bookseller/Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year[edit]

The Bookseller magazine has run the Diagram Prize since 1978.
The Bookseller magazine has run the Diagram Prize since 1978.

The Bookseller/Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year, originally known as the Diagram Group Prize for the Oddest Title and commonly known as the Diagram Prize, is a humorous literary award that is given annually to a book with an unusual title. The prize is named after the Diagram Group, an information and graphics company based in London, and The Bookseller, a British trade magazine for the publishing industry. Originally organised to provide entertainment during the 1978 Frankfurt Book Fair, the prize has since been awarded every year by The Bookseller and is now organised by the magazine's diarist Horace Bent. The winner was initially decided by a panel of judges, but since 2000 the winner has been decided by a public vote on The Bookseller website. Controversy has arisen since the creation of the awards: there have been two occasions when no award was given because no titles were judged to be odd enough; Bent has complained about some of the winners chosen by the public; and the 2008 winner, The 2009–2014 World Outlook for 60-milligram Containers of Fromage Frais, proved controversial because rather than being written by its listed author, Philip M. Parker, it was instead written by a machine of Parker's invention. (Full list...)

If it is not too soon, I'd like the list to go up on 3rd December, when this year's winner will be announced. ISD (talk) 07:50, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't believe this list is eligible to appear as it already ran on the Main Page in 2013. Any decision to start making previously run lists eligible for repeat appearances is something that would have to be discussed at WT:FLC, not something a director should implement unilaterally. Giants2008 (Talk) 23:32, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
OK, I'm happy for the nomination to be withdrawn. ISD (talk) 10:48, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

The 74th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored films released in 2001 and took place on March 24, 2002, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards in 24 categories. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, was produced by Laura Ziskin and directed by Louis J. Horvitz. Actress Whoopi Goldberg hosted the show for the fourth time. A Beautiful Mind won four awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Denzel Washington and Halle Berry (pictured) won lead acting honors with the latter becoming the first African-American to win the Best Actress award. The telecast garnered nearly 42 million viewers in the United States. (Full list...)

I would like this list to be posted on March 28 since the 94th Academy Awards are scheduled for March 27 (or March 28 01:00 UTC), and it will have been 20 years since this particular ceremony occurred.
