Oscar 1995: Omissions

In 1995, although their films were cited in several categories, directors Ron Howard (Apollo 13) and Ang Lee (Sense and Sensibility) came up empty-handed. Instead, the two slots in the directorial category were filled by Mike Figgis, whose Leaving Las Vegas was nominated in major categories (such as acting) but not Best Picture, and Tim Robbins for Dead Man Walking, which failed to receive Best Picture nomination but was cited in several other fields.
