Trivia: Three of the five Best Picture nominees feature graphic scenes of people throwing up. (The Reader is extra chunky.)

During the puke scene in last night’s episode of Lost, I wondered when regurgitation became okay on prime time TV. Not in an offended “This must stop before our children are ruined!” manner, but simple curiosity. Was there a breakthrough puke moment, in the way that Psycho featured the first time a toilet was flushed on the screen? 

Does anybody know? And do you think that vomiting scenes in movies and television are too prevalent in contemporary society?
