Trivia

With the exception of Frank Sinatra who was given a 'Special' Memorial Tribute, this was the first year that all of the actual actors featured in this year's In Memoriam tribute had never once been nominated, nor won an Oscar for an acting category. The one actress that died within the time period before this year's showing, Peggy Cass, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Auntie Mame (1958), however she not featured in the tributes.

Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan has to be a joke
26 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

How in the blue hell can you vote for a movie like Shakespeare in Love over a legendary all time great war movie like Saving Private Ryan is my question. Ryan is still a movie that gets regular play in syndication while I don't think that many people have really given SiL that much thought since then. I'm not saying that SiL is a bad movie by any means but no way it's in even the same class as Ryan. The Omaha Beach scene to start off the movie should've been enough on its own to guarantee SPR the Oscar for Best Picture.

Also not very fond of Roberto Benigni winning the Best Actor Oscar, I guess they determined with Hanks recent success in Philadelphia and Forrest Gump already making him a two time Oscar winner that they had to give it to someone else. But even Nick Nolte for Affliction or Edward Norton for American History X would've been better choices.
