Sixteen Candles (1983)

American teenager Samantha (Molly Ringwald) is despondent that her entire family has forgotten her sixteenth birthday, so caught up are they in the wedding of her sister the next day.

Samantha has a crush on classmate Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling), and she wrongly thinks he has no interest in her.

Matters are not helped by a party that evening at school, at which much mayhem breaks out, nor by the chaotic wedding day itself.

In December 1984, Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall both won Young Artist Awards as “Best Young Actress in a Motion Picture” and “Best Young Actor in a Motion Picture” for their roles in the film, respectively becoming the first and only juvenile performers in the history of the Young Artist Awards to win the Best Leading Actress and Best Leading Actor awards for the same film.
