The Irishman was great!
Dances with Wolves is very close to my heart--my siblings are from my father's first marriage and they are Sioux Indians, so I know all about that.
The English Patient had La Binoche, the most beautiful woman (other than Mary Caroline) in the world, ever.

Seen all of them except for "Shakespeare in Love." Gotta go with "American Beauty" at Number One, followed by "The English Patient" and "Schindler's List." A lot of movies on that list--cough, "Braveheart," cough "Forrest Gump", cough "Titanic"--were epic in scope but still crap nonetheless: epic crap.

I made a mistake, I voted for silencre of the lambs because I hadn't seen unforgiven in the list :o
unforgiven is the only good movie of those ten btw (in my opinion of course), but none of them can even start to approach a movie like rebecca for example....

Jan 9th, 2006, 01:14 PM
I had such a big expectation with Silence of the lamb that eventually I got deeply disappointed :o
From the list I guess I'd go with Shakespeare in Love, but I haven't seen The English patient, the only one of the 3 I haven't seen that could be up there for me.

Heres how i see it, prob should have been nominated at least for Heavenly Creatures, should have won in 97 in Titanic i mean what did Helen Hunt do that was so amazing in "As Good as it gets", she was in tough categories for her supporting roles but 04 in ESOTSM she was robbed :o just stupid she was unreal in ESOTSM

First post is updated with trailers from the 'Best Pictures'. So if you haven't seen most of the films, you can always cast a vote based on your judgment from the trailers.;)

No, it was upset by Shakespeare in Love. Here's the clip of the Oscar ceremony when it wins Best Picture: Shakespeare in Love wins Best Picture Oscar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP9a10PK54g)

I thought "Misery" won Best Picture some year in the 90s?! Obviously not then, I should know this too :o

No, Misery had only one nomination and win for Best Actress in a Leading Role: Kathy Bates (who also stars in the 'Best Picture of 1997' Titanic in which she portrays Molly Brown).

forrest gump. :bigclap:

shakespeare in love was garbage or close to it. weintstein "bought" that Oscar. no way Gwyneth should have beaten out Cate Blanchett for Best Actress.

english patient is such a depressing movie. the book even more so.

WOW! I voted for Schindler's List :confused: I disliked it. I must have been voted by accident :lol:

Out of the list, my vote goes to American Beauty :inlove: I only saw it for the first time earlier this year! It's one of my Top 10 favourite movies of all time.

american beauty or titanic!!
cannot believe shakespeare in love or braveheart won best picture. seriously, if they put actors in period costumes, it's automatically oscar worthy. similar to if an actor plays someone mentally challenged.

Jurassic Park won three (Visual Effects, Sound and Sound Effects Editing), but wasn't nominated for anything else. Too bad, because the score definitely deserved a nod...

The English Patient then Schindler's List. If Pulp Fiction had won for 1994 (which it should have), it would be my favorite.

Don't know how Shakespeare in Love won over Life is Beautiful :o

I am happy to say I have watched every movie nominated from this period and altough I like all the best picture movies of the 90's, I have to say some of the movies didnt really deserve to win in their year, a lot of the nominated who didnt win where better, for example Titanic, which is a great movie but very overated in a lot of aspects. Anyway if I had to rank the best picture winners of the 90's it would go something like this:

1. Dances with Wolves
2. Forrest Gump
2. American Beauty
4. Schindler's List
4. The Silence of the Lambs
4. The English Patient
7. Braveheart
7. Unforgiven
7. Shakespeare in Love
10. Titanic(sorry fans, it is a great movie, great performance by Kate as always, a good love story, but def not best picture material in my mind and most def one of the most overated movies of all time. Being the Highest grossing movie of all time just proves that( altough Return of the King grossed 2nd of all time it deserved its best picture most def).

Schindlers list. I find it laughable that Titanic won. Awful choice

I would have voted for L.A. Confidential that year but Titanic was not an awful choice. The movie was such a spectacular technical achievement along with being such a cultural phenomenon that it totally makes sense why it won. It's a shame that the obsession from teenage girls turned so many people off to this movie because it really is an impressive achievement and story.

My choice for favorite best picture winner would probably be The Silence of the Lambs but Schindler's List and American Beauty were both very good movies so it depends on my mood.

There were some bad choices this decade though including Dances with Wolves over Goodfellas, Forrest Gump over Pulp Fiction, Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan and The English Patient over Fargo :o

Schindler's List because it was one of the few movies that has ever made me break down in tears and sob like a child. Too bad the first time I watched it was in school. :o

Silence of the Lambs is as close a second could be.

American Beauty. Frickin virtuoso performance from all involved.

Only seen four of them, but dont really like any of them a lot. Titanic would be the best of them and Kate Winslet was very good but it was too long for me and obviously an action director doing a romance is not the best thing. that year butwas not an awful choice. Preferred indie movies like Fargo, The Hot Spot, The Professional
