1988 Alternate Oscars

Tom Hanks has been my generation's Jimmy Stewart for more than forty years now but it was his performance in 1988's Big, dancing with Robert Loggia on that giant piano, that earned Hanks his first Oscar nomination. Here at the Monkey, it earns him an alternate Oscar.

By the way, today is the fifteenth anniversary of the beginning of this blog. Don't know what that signifies other than my own stubborn irrelevance but I'm having a good time ...

My choices are noted with a ★. A tie is indicated with a ✪. Historical Oscar winners are noted with a ✔. Best foreign-language picture winners are noted with an ƒ. A historical winner who won in a different category is noted with a ✱.
