Quotes

Ron Judkins - Winner: Best Sound Mixing: For a whole generation that has never had to experience war, "Saving Private Ryan" powerfully and nobly demonstrates the horror of what that is.

Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan has to be a joke
26 February 2012 | by Maniac-9See 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.
