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.

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.”
