The five films nominated for best picture in the Academy Awards competition were "JFK," a controversial look at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy; "Beauty and the Beast," the first full-length cartoon feature ever nominated for best picture; "Bugsy," a period drama about gangster Bugsy Siegel; "The Silence of the Lambs," a psychological thriller about a serial killer, and "The Prince of Tides," a drama about a Southern football coach with a troubled past who is helped by a New York City psychiatrist. The awards will be broadcast live March 30.
The Evening Sun would like to know which movie you believe should win: "The Prince of Tides," "The Silence of the Lambs," "Bugsy," "Beauty and the Beast" or "JFK?" Not nominated was "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," the biggest money-maker of the year. Do you feel it should have been?
