    My Best Picture nominees for 1999:

    1. The Sixth Sense

    2. Toy Story 2

    3. Princess Mononoke

    4. The Green Mile

    5. Boys Don’t Cry

    The Matrix I find to be a insanely dated films. So much terrible electronic music, so much black leather. It is a ok film mainly do to the action, but it reeks of 90s cheese (and it had peak bad acting Keanu).

    Two classics I still need to see from 1999 are Magnolia and Eyes Wide Shut. I imagine I will not like Eyes Wide Shut, but Magnolia seems like it would be my thing.

    My vote is with The Matrix. A big sigh of relief seeing this ground breaking film hitting the screens.
    I was happy for what it did win esp Editing, but how nice it would have been seeing a screenplay nod for the Wachowskis . They are all good screenplays in that category but in the end I’d have knocked out AB in favor of this.
    And in a fair world Carrie -Anne Moss wouldn’t have been on the outside looking in.

    The Matrix and Fight Club deserves BP and screenplay noms, but I’m happy they got recognized in some way. Probably the best Supporting Actor Lineup of the last 20 years, but would’ve preferred if someone else other than Caine had won.

    Law > Cruise > Duncan > Osment > Caine

    I agree with this. I was surprised that Cruise did not win. Was it because Tom Cruise was such a big movie star back then?
