Miramax Dominates Oscars Like No Studio In 50 Years

After grabbing three of the five Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Miramax Studio has dominated the Academy Awards like no studio has in 50 years. “That achievement is all the more significant because Miramax is not one of the major studios, like Warner Brothers or Columbia Pictures, but an indie start-up begun in 1979 by a pair of hustling, film-loving brothers from Queens, Harvey and Bob Weinstein. Their company grew steadily through the 80’s, became an independent division of Disney in 1993 and after today has to be considered the equal of any of the major studios in Hollywood.”
