Go back in time 10 years...  Who is Leonardo DiCaprio? Oh just some teen guy. Kate Winslet? Oh yeah, "Heavenly Creatures". Billy Who? (I know, "The Phantom", but still...). So yeah, a bunch of unknowns (with Kathy Bates and Victor Garber, and a few others, not a lot, Bill Paxton was barely in it, Gloria Stuart too, but this doesn't detract from their performances at all) I doubt the Academy would have picked it based on its cast. If they did/do choose their movies that way, then "L.A. Confidential" would've won. "Pulp Fiction" would've won.

So yeah...

Thank you, I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers 10 years back.

The only odd thing about Titanic is that it was one of only a few Best Picture winners that did not garner a Best Actor or Best Actress win as well.  And I think we can all agree, it was no Ben-Hur.  Happy

It also did not have a nomination for best screenplay!  That last timw a movie won Best Picture without having its screenplay
nominated was "The Sound of Music"
