Oscar Context

The five Best Picture nominees in 1998 fell into two categories: Movies about royalty (“Shakespeare in Love” and “Elizabeth”) and WWII pictures (“Saving Private Ryan,” Terrence Malick's “The Thin Red Line,” and even Roberto Benigni Holocaust fable “Life Is Beautiful”).

The most nominated film, “Shakespeare in Love,” swept most of the Oscars, including Picture, Director and Actress to Gwyneth Paltrow, though Blanchett was expected to win.
