Trivia

All of the 5 Best Picture nominees were period films, and represented two distinct eras - 16th century England (Elizabeth (1998), and Shakespeare in Love (1998)), and World War II (the European theatre: Saving Private Ryan (1998) and Life Is Beautiful (1997), and the Pacific theatre: The Thin Red Line (1998)).

Why "Shakespeare in Love"?
23 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I still can't understand why they gave "Shakespeare in Love" Best Picture. I was rooting for "Life is Beautiful". Even "Saving Private Ryan" and the conspicuously snubbed "Truman Show" were better. But at least they gave Roberto Benigni the two Oscars that he really deserved; does anyone deny that his acceptance speech was the ceremony's highlight? I know that some people deride Whoopi Goldberg as a host, but I really like her (especially with that "20th century fox" remark). Probably the funniest comment of the night was Robin Williams's "Guns and Moses: The Charlton Heston Story. But you can't say Moses; you have to say The Artist Formerly Known as the Prince of Egypt!" As for Elia Kazan, I say that honoring him for his movies would be like honoring Pol Pot for stamping out corruption. At least the cameras showed people not applauding (among them Nick Nolte).

Overall, a worthy ceremony.
