The only Best Picture Oscar nominee that year not to be nominated in any of the writing categories. This is in contrast to Titanic (1953), which won only one Oscar: Best Screenplay. See more »
Just before he shoots himself, Murdoch gives a military salute with his palm facing down. Many believe that the Titanic, being an English ship with English crew, would have its officers salute the British way with their palms facing out. But only the British Army and Air Force salute this way. The British Royal Navy salutes "in the American manner" with palm facing down, widely attributed to the fact that historically sailors would have very dirty hands thus unfit to display in polite company let alone the Queen.

James Cameron made a notable change for the 3-D release in 2012. After being told by Neil deGrasse Tyson that the starfield in the sinking scene would not have been visible from that location at that time of year, Cameron replaced it with a view of the correct starfield. Additions of stars in the background were made for all of the night exterior shots of the ship for the 3-D release in 2012. See more »
James Cameron's Titanic is a masterpiece and a tour de force of filmmaking
Titanic is world famous. The film that broke every box office record on release and wore the box office champion crown for many years(until it was overtaken by Jim Cameron's Avatar) is special because not only does it showcase the Titanic disaster in all its glory the film is a technical achievement of the highest order. The sinking sequence is astonishing and it feels like you are watching the actual ship sink. The characters and actors are amazing and even with a large running length you never dare look at the watch. James Cameron is a master director and Titanic is his stamp of authority.
