Let’s Second Guess The Academy: 1994 Best Picture


For this week’s edition of Let’s Second Guess the Academy, let’s consider the contest for Best Picture of 1994.

The Academy nominated Forrest Gump, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Pulp Fiction, Quiz Show, and The Shawshank Redemption.  Ultimately, they named Forrest Gump the best picture of 1994. 

Were they right?

Also, which five films would you have nominated for best picture if the five actual nominees had not been options?  Again, you can vote for up to five films.
