I’ve been kicking this around in my own head for half the day, after there were no Oscar nominations for this movie.
As great as I thought this movie was, it was no Oscar contender, except maybe in some of the technical categories, like Best Costume Design or Best Cinematography. But they were snubbed there, too.
I dunno. Maybe the other genre films that did get nominated deserved it more.
And it’s not like the Oscars mean anything in the grand scheme of “what Chris likes.”
Raiders of the Lost Ark lost to Chariots of Fire for Best Picture in 1981, after all.
