All Oscar-nominated films for Best Picture in 1998 (at the March 1999 ceremony) took place more than 50 years before the film was released. The Best Picture winner was Shakespeare in Love, and the other nominees that year were Saving Private Ryan, Life Is Beautiful, The Thin Red Line and Elizabeth.

Life is Beautiful was my favorite film nominated that year, closely followed by Elizabeth.

This year my favorite is Finding Neverland!


What about you?

That's pretty cool. I just watched part of Shakespeare in Love this weekend, I love that movie, and now I really want to watch the whole thing again. Though, Saving Private Ryan was excellent too.

I've heard both good and bad things about Finding Neverland, but I still really want to see it.

I have no desire to see The Thin Red Line. Was it bad or just your least favorite film that was nominated that year?

Finding Neverland in my opinion is one of the best movies that has been out in years.

And The Thin Red Line was all right.. not my kind of movie at all.

I'm usually not familiar with most American cinema. But on the news today when they were talking about the upcomming oscars, they mentioned the movie Titanic. Wait, isn't that movie pretty old? Now I'm just confused about the whole oscar ceremony.

Finding Neverland was great.... I loved it. And what made it even better was that, i LOVE Johnny Depp, and have for EVER.... And when POTC came out, everyone was like "oh ma god! Johnny Depp is so hot! I loooooove him"


And then this movie came out and no one went to see it, and those that did were like "oh... he was hot in POTC."


And that makes me laugh, Johnny has been hot since forever.... specially in Crybaby and Edward Scissorhands. *drools*

He is hot. And I love the way he acts, and he's so respectable.

He's hot in everything. ^.^

Two things:

1) Thin Red Line takes place in either Korea (1952-1955) or Vietnam (1962-1970), neither of which were 50 years before 1998.

2) It's obvious that Million Dollar Baby will win (well, did win, at this point), because the Academy won't ever be able to pick a movie that doesn't have some sort of cliche or predictable point/ending/theme/etc... As of right now, Hotel Rwanda is the most beautiful film I've ever seen, far better than any of the nominees for best picture I've seen (Million Dollar Baby, Sideways, Ray), but it wouldn't ever have a chance of winning because it's too heavy for anyone.

1. Taken from IMDB. Plot Outline: Director Terrence Malick's adaptation of James Jones' autobiographical 1962 novel, focusing on the conflict at Guadalcanal during the second World War.


---- fyi, the second world war ended in 1945, so even if it was the last year of World War 2 that it took place it would be over 50 years before 1998.

2. I haven't seen Hotel Rwanda yet but I cannot wait. I hear it is absolutely phenomenal, and though I was truly hoping that Finding Neverland woudl win everything that it was nominated for, it did not. :( I would have been happy with Hotel Rwanda winning instead. It also did not. I'm bumming.
