In this new series we take a look at the Oscar nominations of years past, examining the flicks that were nominated, as well as the pic we feel got snubbed among all the other candidates. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Oscars usually highlight the best films from each year (although there are plenty that get overlooked) and it's always fun to look back and see what was popular for any given year and to contemplate their legacy in retrospect. This time out we take a look at the 1987 Oscars, which had some very strong contenders, including a now classic Vietnam War drama, a Woody Allen talker, A Merchant Ivory flick, A Roland Joffe missionary pic, and a stage play adaptation.

Enjoy:

1987 Nominees:

- PLATOON
- CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD
- A ROOM WITH A VIEW
- HANNAH AND HER SISTERS
- THE MISSION

Winner: PLATOON

Stand by Me is as good a pick for a snubbee as any.

Platoon is my absolute favorite war movie. I'm not a huge war movie buff, but I watch it at least once a year and it's a complete emotional drain every time. One of the times the Academy got the winner exactly right.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... www.jobs-review.com
