Oscar Context

In 2004, “Finding Neverland” competed for the Best Picture Oscar with Scorsese's Howard Hughes biopic “The Aviator,” Clint Eastwood's sports euthanasia drama, “Million Dollar Baby,” which won, Taylor Hackford's showbiz biopic “Ray,” and Alexander Payne's comedy “Sideways.”

The gifted director Marc Forster was not nominated for his work in “Finding Neverland.” Brit Mike Leigh got his spot for the drama “Vera Drake,” which didn't receive Picture nod.
