An emerging romantic comedy masterpiece, Groundhog Day, struck out for Oscar nominations.

There was no recognition for director/screenwriter Harold Ramis, or for actor Bill Murray's superb characterization as TV weatherman Phil who was forced to repeat the same day over and over again in an endless loop, and (supporting) actress Andie Mac Dowell as TV producer Rita (Phil's love interest).

The three hour-long, small-budget ($23 million) film had twelve nominations and seven overall wins (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography for Janusz Kaminski, Best Film Editing, and Best Original Score - by John Williams). Spielberg also triumphed in the same year with three technical-achievement awards for his box-office hit Jurassic Park: Best Sound, Best Sound Effects Editing, and Best Visual Effects.

Four of the five Best Picture nominees were serious-minded films.

Denzel Washington was denied an acting nomination for his performance as black, ambulance-chasing defense lawyer Joe Miller (opposite Best Actor-winning Tom Hanks) in Philadelphia, as was Jeff Bridges for his role as post-traumatic stress disorder victim Max Klein in Weir's Fearless, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as fictional action hero film character Sgt. Although nominated for Remains of the Day, Anthony Hopkins should also have been nominated for his role as Christian novelist C. Lewis in Shadowlands (a film mostly neglected by the Academy).

And Matthew Mc Conaughey was un-nominated for his memorable performance as the seasoned suitor named Wooderson of Texas high school girls in Dazed and Confused.

The Age of Innocence won one award: Best Supporting Actress, Miriam Margolyes.

[This was another instance in which an award was given for an actress' non-speaking role, i.e., Jane Wyman in Johnny Belinda (1948), Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker (1962), Marlee Matlin in Children of a Lesser God (1986).]The Best Supporting Actor Oscar was won by Tommy Lee Jones (with his second nomination and first Oscar win) for his performance as determined and relentless, laconic Deputy U. Marshal Samuel Gerard who tracks fugitive Harrison Ford in the exciting chase film The Fugitive.

Many felt the award should have gone to Ralph Fiennes instead.

They were the first nominees to compete against each other in both the Actress and Supporting Actress categories, in the same year:[Because Emma Thompson lost both Oscars in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories, she shares the same dubious 'achievement' with actress Sigourney Weaver - who was also unsuccessful with her nominations for Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and Working Girl (1988).
