Winner of 6 Oscars, but should have won more... - Nirmal1991USA
This Movie made Tom Hanks the Greatest Actor of All-time! It should have won more Oscars...
Feel sorry for The Shawshank Redemption because if it had been released any year other than 1994, it would have definitely won the Best Picture of the Year...
I love this movie! I haven't gotten to see the end... That I'm aware of at least. - MoldySock
Dare I point out that Shawshank was never going to be a serious BP contender. For me it was a 3 horse race between Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and Four Weddings & a Funeral.
Why is forrest gump higher than this? This movie won 0 Oscars but has higher ratings than forrest gump by both IMDb and Rotten tomatoes.
If Forrest Gump was made any year except 1994, The Shawshank Redemption would have won the Best Picture that year alongside with the Incredible Morgan Freeman winning the Best Actor...
An extremely rare occasion where 2 of the Greatest Movies of all time on any given list, review or ranking were made on the same year...
Sylvester Stallone should have won the Best Actor!
WHY ON EARTH STALLONE DIDN'T GET THE BEST ACTOR?
This movie is amazing
Best Actor in a Leading Role
Best Actor in a Supporting Role
Best Actor: Liam Neeson
Best Supporting Actor: Ralph Fiennes
Best Costume Design: Anna Biedrzycka Sheppard
It won the main awards, but it could've won more if it wanted to. - dureckl
The artistry was truly stunning. A sort of half-way house between Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia.
Was definitely more worthy of the Art Direction Oscar than Sweeney Todd of all things.
The only people who got pissed off by this movie's visual effects win were the purvy Transformers fanboys who thought Megan Fox's ass was more oscar worthy than a heroic polar bear.
Should have won less if you ask me. - Mrveteran
Tough to argue with 7 wins in the following categories:
Best Director - David Lean
Best Cinematography - Freddie Young
Best Film Editing - Anne V. Coates
Best Original Score - Maurice Jarre
Best Production Design - John Box, John Stoll and Dario Simoni
Best Sound - John Cox
But… look at the other contenders who were nominated in other categories and tell me that they don't deserve an Oscar either!
Best Actor - Peter O'Toole
Best Supporting Actor - Omar Sharif
Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) - Robert Bolt
