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)).

30 March 2002 | by Indy-52See all my reviews

the one big mistake committed by the Academy this year was giving Best Picture to "Shakespeare in Love". "Saving Private Ryan" was by far the more deserving film. I'm happy that Spielberg won the Oscar for Best Director for this film. I was also happy seeing Roberto Benigni win for Best Actor since I'm italian. I think there were some really good movies nominated this year, certainly better than in 2001 and this year, 2002. But I still believe "Shakespeare in Love" is a most overrated movie.
