The 1994 Critics Consensus Award Winners

John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction

Inevitable, I suppose. Pulp Fiction lost in only one of its five categories at the 1994 CCAs, leaving space for just one of its Best Picture competitors to win a mere single award. Even Oscar champ Forrest Gump couldn't pick up an award, as Best Actor goes not to Tom Hanks but to Samuel L. Jackson! Indeed, Pulp Fiction's co-lead, up for Supporting at '94's Oscars, beats his fellow co-lead John Travolta, up for Leading there, by a single point (309.5 to 308.5) - one of the tightest victories in CCA history. Elsewhere, there was a 100% win rate for Ed Wood, albeit on only two nominations, but quite the success for a non-Best Picture nominee. And Oscar snub Linda Fiorentino wins Best Actress as she might well have done there had the Academy not disqualified her film, The Last Seduction.
