This was a better year for the Oscars than 1990 was. Links for this year's movies:
Beauty and the Beast
Silence of the Lambs
Prince of Tides
'Silence' was clearly the best of this group and clearly deserved the Best Picture it got. I suppose I'd rank 'JFK' next with 'Beauty' and 'Tides' to follow. 'Bugsy' is pretty pedestrian in comparison. Both Warren Beaty and Barbara Streisand are in what can only be described as vanity roles. Nick Nolte is able to save 'Tides' but 'Bugsy' is beyond even Ben Kingsley's abilities. 'Beauty' was the first animated film to be nominated, in part because of the computer graphics added to it. Today it doesn't look as good, but the music and story still hold. 'JFK' was very well put together, but should be demerited for it's loaded conclusions.
Altogether, not a bad set of movies.
