    When Harry Met Sally is my favorite movie of 1989. Indiana Jones is right up there too

    This one is pretty hard. I think some very strong and even classic films got snubbed at the expense of some weaker films….as is often the case.

    Field of Dreams is a classic but not a film I personally love or even like….at all.

    I do really like Dead Poets Society but I don’t know if I would personally nominate it.

    My Left Foot had those two amazing performances by Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker that made the film, but beyond that, I am not sure I would nominate the film as a whole.

    Born on the Fourth of July is probably my favorite Oliver Stone film if only for the fact that I got through it the easiest.

    Driving Miss Daisy is a simple film but it did what it set out to do and was a lovely effort. I wholeheartedly support not only the fact that it was nominated but it deserved its win and would make my personal lineup.

    Of the above list, I see several films that seem like they’d be nominees and weren’t only snubbed but hardly got any notice at all.

    Cinema Paradiso, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Do The Right Thing, Glory, sex lies & videotape, and When Harry Met Sally stand out as my favorites of the list…not that the others were bad but they wouldn’t make my top 10 of that year.

    My nominations would’ve been:

    Crimes and Misdemeanors
    Do The Right Thing
    Driving Miss Daisy
    sex, lies, and videotape
    When Harry Met Sally

    As for the winner, this changes constantly but as of right now, it would actually be When Harry Met Sally….the best romantic comedy of the last 30 years.
