: For comparisons sake, these are the movies that were nominated in '92: Unforgiving(winner),The Crying Game, A Few Good Men, Howards End, Scent of a Woman. I've seen 3 out of the 5, and believe that LOTM was far better entertainment by far. Unforgiving was a horrific, bloody tale.....at least with LOTM, we were taught a history lesson along with experiencing the bloody moments:o)...ann
Hi, Ann. Somewhere in last year's archives, I think, is a post naming all the winners of the 1992 Academy Awards, with (ahem) personal commentary by yours truly. I've seen all five of the above films, and my honest opinion is that the winner, The Unforgiven, was the WORST of the lot. I really disliked it, and all of the performances therein. And Al Pacino, who won Best Actor for his completely over-the-top performance in Scent of a Woman, cannot hold a candle (in this film) to any of the leading men in LOTM. How he managed to "Hooo-haaaa!" that role into a winner is beyond me. Personally, I thought the other three movies were each excellent in very different ways, with some very strong performances, but ignoring LOTM in any of the main categories was a BIG mistake. Or a flat-out insult.
