Oscar Snubs: The 90’s Edition

The 90’s was a decade filled with great films nominated for Best Picture, but the winners list sometimes left us scratching our heads. Every Thursday in February we’re re-visiting films from the 90’s that did not receive the coveted Academy Award for Best Picture. These films are the ones we continue to discuss and still refuse to believe lost at Hollywood’s biggest night.

FARGO – February 7
This Coen Brothers’ cult classic was nominated for 7 Academy Awards in 1997 including Best Picture and Best Director. While the film lost to THE ENGLISH PATIENT for Best Picture, Frances McDormand took home an Oscar for her performance and both Joel & Ethan Coen were awarded an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

SAVING PRIVATE RYAN – February 11
Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Surrounded by the brutal realties of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN was nominated for an impressive 11 Academy Awards, but ultimately lost Best Picture to SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE.

PULP FICTION – February 18
Outrageously violent, time-twisting, and in love with language, PULP FICTION is widely considered the most influential American movie of the 1990s. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, but ultimately lost to FORREST GUMP in 1995. Director Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary won for Best Original Screenplay for this film that you can’t help but quote time and time again. Say what again!

APOLLO 13 – February 25
One of the most talked about Oscar Snubs of the 90’s was Ron Howard’s APOLLO 13 losing to Mel Gibson’s BRAVEHEART. With 9 Academy Award nominations and it’s impressive visual effects, APOLLO 13 was considered a favorite going in to Hollywood’s biggest night. While it only took home two Oscar Statues (Best Film Editing and Best Sound), this film is still a masterpiece  meant to be experienced on the big screen.

cleopatra-still_5593

CLEOPATRA – February 8
A sprawling, spectacular love story starring Elizabeth Taylor, CLEOPATRA depicts her manipulation of Julius Caesar and Marc Antony in her ill-fated attempt to save the Egyptian empire. This threesome in one of the most famous and gloriously powerful love triangles ever to be captured on film.

Omar Sharif and Julie Christie in the film Doctor Zhivago

DOCTOR ZHIVAGO – February 15
During the Russian Revolution, Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif), is a young doctor who has been raised by his aunt and uncle following his father’s suicide. Yuri falls in love with beautiful Lara Guishar (Julie Christie), who has been having an affair with her mother’s lover, Victor Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), an unscrupulous businessman. Yuri, however, ends up marrying his cousin, Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin). But when he and Lara meet again years later, the spark of love reignites.

JAWS – February 22
Based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 shark saga set the standard for summer blockbusters while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. After shark attacks ravage a resort beach town, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from a visiting ichthyologist (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, the scientist and police chief (Roy Scheider) join forces with the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK – February 29
Featuring bravura set pieces, sly humor, and white–knuckle action, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK is one of the most consummately entertaining adventure pictures of all time. The inimitable Harrison Ford stars as archeologist and adventurer Indianan Jones, on a mission to defeat his enemy Renne Belloq, face down a pit of snakes, and find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do. A joint project from Hollywood prodigies Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK took home four Oscars in 1982, including Best Visual Effects, but missed out on the Best Picture prize.

 

These Oscar Snubs return to the big screen exclusively at the Angelika Carmel Mountain, Mondays in February @ 7PM. Tickets just $10!

Mark your calendars now – Movies Off the Wall returns in March with monthly screening events, exclusively at the Angelika Carmel Mountain.

OPENING OCTOBER 9 AT THE ANGELIKA IN SAN DIEGO:

PAN
Acclaimed director Joe Wright (PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) delivers a thrilling new take on J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic stories, PAN follows the tale of an orphan who is spirited away to magical Neverland. The family action-adventure stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (LES MISERABLES) as Blackbeard the pirate, Garrett Hedlund (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) as Hook, Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, CAROL), and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter Pan.

THE WALK
The highly-anticipated opening night film at this year’s New York Film Festival, THE WALK is the true story of famous high-wire artist Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, INCEPTION) and his 1974 wire walk across the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP, CAST AWAY) uses innovative photorealistic techniques to craft one of this awards-season’s most thrilling contenders.

FREEHELD
Oscar winner Julianne Moore stars alongside Oscar nominees Ellen Page, Steve Carell and Michael Shannon in this poignant love story fresh from its Toronto International Film Festival premiere. After a decorated New Jersey police office is diagnosed with cancer, she is determined to leave her pension to her domestic partner. This stirring drama shows how social change is brought about by empathy, courage, and love.

HE NAMED ME MALALA
Acclaimed documentarian Davis Guggenheim (AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, WAITING FOR SUPERMAN) presents this intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban for advocating for girls’ education and severely wounded by a gunshot. HE NAMED ME MALALA is an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life, from her close relationship with her father to her impassioned speeches at the UN.

99 HOMES
Critics are raving about 99 HOMES, with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this timely sensational thriller follows a charismatic and ruthless businessman (Oscar nominee Michael Shannon) making a killing by repossessing homes. After he evicts a single father trying to care for his mother (Andrew Garfield and Laura Dern), the father becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for the very man who evicted him in the first place.

GOODNIGHT MOMMY
One of the most talked about horror-thrillers in decades, GOODNIGHT MOMMY is the clever and savagely disturbing debut from Austrian filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. After their mother returns home from extensive cosmetic surgery, 9-year-old twin boys begin to doubt that this woman is really their mother. What ensues is a terrifying psychodrama, which blurs the lines between reality and paranoid fantasy.

RIFIFI
A worldwide smash hit, Jules Dassin’s 1955 classic RIFIFI returns to the big screen for a limited time with this impressive new restoration. A legendary 30-minute sequence highlights the brilliant jewel heist at the center of this film, which earned blacklisted Hollywood exile Dassin Cannes’ Best Director prize and set the standard for screen robberies for decades to come.

Celebrate the Master of Suspense!

Hitchcocktober returns to the Angelika! Join us Thursdays in October for a screening of one of Sir Alfred Hitchcock’s classics, back on the big screen (titles and dates vary by location – check your local listings!)

Among the films featured this year:

DIAL M FOR MURDER in 3D (1954)
Yes, 3D! Hitchcock’s 1954 classic was originally shot in 3D, but rarely seen that way by moviegoers. The film has been restored for gorgeous high-resolution 3D digital presentation. British tennis pro Ray Milland suspects that his wealthy wife Grace Kelly is fooling around with handsome American Robert Cummings. Milland blackmails a disgraced former army comrade into murdering Kelly and making it look like the work of a burglar. But Milland’s carefully mapped-out scheme does not take into account the notion that Kelly might fight back and kill her assailant.

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1956)
The debate still rages as to whether Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is superior to his own original 1934 version. This version features more stars, a lusher budget, and the plaintive music of Bernard Herrmann. American tourists James Stewart and Doris Day are witness to the street killing of a Frenchman they’ve recently befriended. Before breathing his last, the murder victim whispers a secret to Stewart. Stewart knows that a political assassination will occur during a concert at London’s Albert Hall, but his son has been kidnapped to keep him from telling the police.

SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943)
Joseph Cotton star as Uncle Charlie, a calculating and charming killer who hides out in his relatives’ small hometown, in Alfred Hitchcock’s SHADOW OF A DOUBT. While hiding out he befriends his favorite niece and namesake, Young Charlie (Teresa Wright) – but she begins to suspect he may be the famed Merry Widow murderer. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as the psychopathic killer plots the death of his young niece to protect his secret.

PSYCHO (1960)
Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. When Marion Crane, spectacularly played by Janet Leigh, ends up at the Bates Motel after making off with $40,000 cash, there’s hardly a film fan alive who doesn’t know what happens next. First a private detective, then Marion’s sister, search for her as the horror and suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.

MARNIE (1964)
One year after she appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller THE BIRDS, actress Tippi Hedren took on another Hitchcock role in this unusual psychological drama. Marnie Edgars is a scheming young woman who repeatedly finds employment as a secretary and then proceeds to rob her employers. Though she changes her disguise, her new boss (Sean Connery) recognizes her – but instead of reporting her to the police, he’s intrigued by her criminal behavior and certain events in her past.

Angelika After Hours: THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Director Jonathan Demme’s smart, taut thriller teeters on the edge between psychological study and all-out horror. In this multiple Oscar-winning thriller, Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy. In her investigation of a vicious murderer nicknamed Buffalo Bill, she interviews Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, in a chilling, Oscar-winning performance), a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath serving life in prison for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Lecter does indeed know something of Buffalo Bill, but his information comes with a price.
