Best Picture : Dances with Wolves - Kevin Costner's epic finds Civil War hero Lt. Dunbar giving up the life he knows for the simplicity of life with the Native Americans. I have not seen this film, but have heard that it is a good movie, if a bit ignorant and a bit on the cringy side.
Biggest Box Office : Home Alone - John Hughes steps out of the world of Teen filmmaking to cater to a younger crowd with this film that was a breakout success and turned Macaulay Culkin into a household name. With Hughes on script, it was up to director Christopher Columbus to helm what has become a quintessential Christmas film. Slapstick humor, and stronger performances from Culkin, the two bandits that want in his house; Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, and neighborhood freak Old Man Marley played by Roberts Blossom elevate this film which feels oddly timeless. John William's score is powerful and moving.
