See Russell Crowe have his vengeance (in this life or the next...) with Ridley Scott's rousing actioner Gladiator – it won five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor for Crowe, and nabbed seven more noms.
Fun fact: Mel Gibson was offered the lead but he turned it down because he thought he was too old.
Have furry fun with the totally snuggly, not very scary Sully and Mike in Pete Docter’s gorgeous animation Monsters Inc. Pipped to the Best Animated Feature post by Shrek (robbed!) Randy Newman still bagged best song for fabulously fuzzy ‘If I Didn’t Have you’.
Fun Fact: Ever wondered how many hairs there are on Sully’s body? In total: 2,320,413.
Get down with the GoodFellas – Scorcese's piercing, pin sharp study of the mob which scooped a best supporting Oscar for Joe Pesci (ìFunny how?î brrr...!) as well as five more nods including Best Picture and Best Director for Martin Scorsese (losing out on both to Dances With Wolves ).
Fun fact: Martin Scorsese's mum and dad both cameo in the movie. His dad is the prisoner who puts too much onion in the tomato sauce.
There's hours of Oscars goodness at your fingertips.
