Founded by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Miramax was notorious for specifically creating Oscar Bait Movies and releasing them one after the other in order to appear to be the studio that "gets the most Oscars." They followed up The Crying Game, Pulp Fiction, The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love with Chocolat, Chicago and Cold Mountain. However, they also produce movies that are not considered Oscar Bait, such as the View Askewniverse. This is the very company that launched Quentin Tarantino's career as a director, producing the above mentioned Pulp Fiction as well as Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill and Jackie Brown. Its sister company was Dimension Films, who have since joined The Weinstein Company since 2005. Owned by The Walt Disney Company from 1993 to 2010, it was then sold to Ron Tutor and his company Filmyard Holdings.

Is infamous for often cutting and/or delaying foreign films they bought the rights to, such as Hero, Gandahar, and The Thief and the Cobbler.
