Driving Miss Daisy – 1989
Why it Won: The most remarkable aspect of this Werther’s Original of cinema is that it came at the end of the 1980s, instead of the 1880s. A sometimes sweet, warm and finger-waggingly fuzzy tale of a half-prejudiced old white woman who gradually accepts and befriends her black chauffeur driver. 1989 was apparently a year where we felt sorry for people who had to be driven around all the time. Fine performances from Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman don’t hinder any disputes that this film shouldn’t have even been nominated that year, with Do the Right Thing sitting in Miss Daisy’s seat.

What Should Have Won: Dead Poets Society.

Or Field of Dreams.

Or My Left Foot.

Or Born on the Fourth of July.
