1988 – Musical or Comedy: Hope and Glory

Just how funny was John Boorman’s recollection of his childhood during the London Blitz? Also competing that year in the comedy category was Broadcast News, which still holds the record for having won all five of the major New York Film Critics awards including Best Picture, Actress, Actor, Director, and Screenplay. Ultimately, however, it was the HFPA choice for Best Motion Picture Drama, The Last Emperor, which prevailed at the Oscars winning no less than eight statues.
