YES!

Really, this is quite remarkable. It was eligible after ten years and I'm pretty sure only two films made
the list when they were first eligible. This is only three years later!

BRAVO!

This is the entire list.
It's a great list overall this year, IMO!

Here's the whole list:

Films Selected for the 2018 National Film Registry
(alphabetical order)

    Bad Day at Black Rock (1955)
    Broadcast News (1987)
    Brokeback Mountain (2005)
    Cinderella (1950)
    Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
    Dixon-Wanamaker Expedition to Crow Agency (1908)
    Eve’s Bayou (1997)
    The Girl Without a Soul (1917)
    Hair Piece: A Film for Nappy-Headed People (1984)
    Hearts and Minds (1974)
    Hud (1963)
    The Informer (1935)
    Jurassic Park (1993)
    The Lady From Shanghai (1947)
    Leave Her to Heaven (1945)
    Monterey Pop (1968)
    My Fair Lady (1964)
    The Navigator (1924)
    On the Town (1949)
    One-Eyed Jacks (1961)
    Pickup on South Street (1953)
    Rebecca (1940)
    The Shining (1980)
    Smoke Signals (1998)
    Something Good – Negro Kiss (1898)

And the official announcement on the National Film Registry site.

The National Film Registry Turns 30!
'Brokeback Mountain,' 'Jurassic Park,' 'My Fair Lady' Among the Titles Added

https://www.loc.gov/item/prn-18-144/library-of-congress-national-film-registry-turns-30/2018-12-12/

"Two contemporary Western dramas headline this year’s list: the 1961 “One-Eyed Jacks,” Marlon Brando’s only directorial endeavor, and Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed “Brokeback Mountain.” Released in 2005, “Brokeback Mountain” also has the distinction of becoming the newest film on the registry while the 1891 “Newark Athlete” is the oldest."

Vincent, Diana Ossana said over on Facebook that it is the youngest movie to ever make it into the collection. This says so much about this amazing film.

^^^^ WOW.  That sums it up!  TY for reminding us to nominate it. 
Ossana and Lee must be flying high!  I feel *@(*@ vindicated and proud that we ran that Variety Ad all those many years ago now.  What a ride.  I do not think or have heard of the fans of any film since doing that.  V.
