SPR lost out on Best Pic most probably 'cause of the competition from the other

WWII epic, "The Thin Red Line."

Blanchett's was a solid performance, though the film itself just didn't compete well against the far more original "Shakespeare in Love."

"Central Station," on the other hand, was an original story, brilliantly filmed, and Montenegro's character is simply unforgettable. It's an acting class. She does more with her eyes than most actors with their entire bodies.

It's a little shocking to realize Roberto Benigni is the ONLY actor in a foreign language film to have won the Oscar for Best Actor. Shocking that such a mediocre performance and actor won, and shocking that for almost a hundred years the Academy has neglected such an amazing army of talent.
