Oscarmania

Posted by: ben. for reals. / 4:14 PM

Imagine it's 1992. Someone tells you this: "Fifteen years from now, Eddie Murphy, Mark Wahlberg, Will Smith, and Leonardo DiCaprio will be nominated for Academy Awards for their acting abilities. AND one of them is the favorite to win their category." I know what my reaction would have been. I did a little research. In 1992: Eddie Murphy recently appeared in Another 48 Hours and was probably reading the script for Beverly Hills Cop III and thinking "Gee, that sounds like a great idea!" Markie Mark Wahlberg released his second solo CD. Will "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" Smith released his fourth album with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Leonardo DiCaprio completed his second season on Growing Pains. So Olsen twins, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, annoying little Welch's grape juice kids... I am laughing at you now, but who knows what the future will bring.

When was "What's Eating Gilbert Grape"? Once that was out I think it was not far fetched to think Leonardo might go on to great things.

And thank god you've finally put up an Oscar post. I've been holding off just so I wouldn't step on your toes.

Oh, come on. Gilbert Grape? A fine film, but an easy role.

Gilbert Grape was 1993.

Leo was in Growing Pains?

He was. I believe he was a product of many "our ratings are dropping and the kids on the show aren't as cute/we've run out of plots for these characters" decisions made for 80s and 90s sitcoms.

I think his character was a homeless kid the Seavers took in.
