Two flawless adaptations od classic books. Which movie you prefer? What are zour Noms/Wins for them?May 13, 2020 at 7:54 am #1203479384
Both are fabulous and make my top 100 favorite films. “A Room with a View” slightly higher at #89, while “Sense and Sensibility” ends the list at #100. Lee should have made it to director & Rickman to supporting actor for the later. Day-Lewis should have been nominated for either “A Room with a View” or his other eligible performance that year in “My Beautiful Laundrette”.
“A Room with a View” gets my top spot from the nominees for Picture, director, adapted screenplay & supporting actress. “Sense & Sensibility” gets my lead actress & adapted screenplay.May 13, 2020 at 8:07 am #1203479395

I saw Sense and Sensibility the other day, what a coincidence! It was excellent.

A Room with a View and it’s not even close in my opinion.May 15, 2020 at 3:24 pm #1203483652
I watched both movies last night for the first time and I got say that I loved BOTH !!! Two masterpieces for sure!!! Both movies benefited from a superb cast, amazing direction and sharp writing!!! A Room With a View is definitely more artsy, while Sense & Sensibility has a more classic approach. Day-Lewis definitely deserved a nomination for the former, while Alan Rickman and Elizabeth Spriggs also deserved nods for the latter. Ang Lee was ROBBED of a nomination for Best Director. Definitely should’ve been nominated as Sense & Sensibility wouldn’t have been the same without his direction.
Regarding the wins, I’m okay with A Room With a View only winning Adapted Screenplay above the line. As much as I loved the movie I still prefer Blue Velvet and Hannah and Her Sisters (I have yet to see Platoon). As for Sense & Sensibility, it definitely deserved more wins. Kate Winslet should’ve won Supporting Actress and the movie should’ve won Best Picture. Emma Thompson was incredible but I still prefer Elisabeth Shue and Sharon Stone (and Nicole Kidman – but she was shamefully snubbed). Patrick Doyle was also very deserving for his amazing score. I have to watch Apollo 13 again to make my mind regarding Best Director that year. And I don’t think I need to talk about Emma’s Screenplay, wich was absolutely brilliant and truly deserving of that Oscar. One of the best adapted screenplays of the 90s for sure.May 15, 2020 at 9:02 pm #1203484347
They’re both great, but I prefer “A Room with a View.” James Ivory’s directorial touch, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s adapted screenplay, and E.M. Forster’s novel are a powerful trio. A lot of great movies that year, I also loved “The Mission.”Not now
