  • Award Snub: According to some, this was what Saving Private Ryan was snubbed in favor of, allegedly due to a campaign by Miramax. A campaign so effective, in fact, the Academy members are said to have actually booed the latter film. Needless to say, the film gets A LOT of hate for said snub.
  • Genius Bonus: So many.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Earldom of Wessex hadn't existed for nine hundred years when this movie came out with a fictional Lord Wessex as the villain; a year after the film's release, Prince Edward was created Earl of Wessex on his marriage. Maybe the Queen was a fan of the film?
  • Hype Backlash: People seem to forget it's quite a good movie due to anger over the Best Picture win.
  • Narm: Lampshaded.
