Oscar Context

In 1995, the main competition in the Best Picture category was between Gibson's violent historical epic “Braveheart,” which received 10 nominations, and Ron Howard's fact-inspired adventure “Apollo 13,” with 9, though director Howard was snubbed by the Academy.

The other nominees were “Babe,” the foreign-language film “Il Postino” (“The Postman”), and Ang Lee's literary adaptation “Sense and Sensibility,” which won Emma Thompson an Adapted Screenplay Oscar.
