Oscar Context

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