People choose ‘Park,’ ‘Firm,’ ‘Mrs.’

None of them made the Oscar list, but “Jurassic Park,””Mrs. Doubtfire” and “The Firm” emerged as the top vote-getters for favorite motion picture in the 20 th annual People’s Choice Awards nominations.

“Jurassic Park” and “The Firm” were also finalists in the movie drama category, joined by “The Fugitive,” while “Doubtfire” lit up the comedy voting along with “Cool Runnings” and “Wayne’s World 2.”
