Oscar Context

Sweeping most (11) of the Oscars in 1997, “Titanic” easily beat out the other four contenders: The American comedy “As Good As It Gets,” the British comedy “The Full Monty,” the youth melodrama “Good Will Hunting,” and the noir-policier “L.A. Confidential,” Curtin Hanson's period drama that had earlier won all of the critics awards. So much for critics' power on the Academy voters.
