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 1998 Academy Awards, which featured James Cameron's TITANIC, Curtis Hanson's L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, Gus Van Sant's GOOD WILL HUNTING, Peter Cattaneo's THE FULL MONTY, and James L. Brooks' AS GOOD AS IT GETS. Check out the Retrospective below!

1998 Nominees (for films released in 1997):

- TITANIC
- THE FULL MONTY
- L.A. CONFIDENTIAL
- AS GOOD AS IT GETS
- GOOD WILL HUNTING

Winner: TITANIC

Snub: BOOGIE NIGHTS

I always felt the academy should have split with LA Confidential taking best picture and Cameron taking best director. For me, LA Confidential was just such a stronger film than Titanic, spectacle aside. I still watch LA Confidential every now and then, Titanic maybe once since it left theaters.
