Oscar Context

In 1994, “Forrest Gump,” the most nominated (13 categories), competed for the Best Picture with Trantino's structurally ineventive “Pulp Fiction” (7 nods), the old fashioned prison drama “The Shawshank Redemption” (also 7), Redford's fact-based drama “Quiz Show” (4), and the British comedy “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” which received just 2 nominations.
