Broadcast crix name Spielberg best of ’90s

Hanks, Freeman get best thesp nods

Steven Spielberg was crowned filmmaker of the decade Monday by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., which singled out his pics “Schindler’s List” (1993) and “Saving Private Ryan” (1998) as the top two films of the 1990s.

The org also tapped Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman as the leading actors of the 1990s.

Spielberg was deemed king because he was the only director that had helmed two films listed in the top 10 movies of the decade voted on by the BFCA. Similarly, both Hanks (“Ryan,” “Forrest Gump”) and Freeman (“The Shawshank Redemption,” “Unforgiven”) are the only thesps to have starred in more than one film that made the BFCA’s cut.

Following in order behind “Schindler’s List” (No. 1) and “Ryan” (No. 2), the org’s picks were Curtis Hanson’s “L.A. Confidential” (1997), Robert Zemeckis’ “Forrest Gump” (1994), Martin Scorsese’s “GoodFellas” (1990), Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Fargo” (1996), Jonathan Demme’s “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991), Frank Darabont’s “The Shawshank Redemption” (1994), Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” (1994) and Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven” (1992).

The BFCA’s top 10 nods will be presented at the org’s Critic’s Choice Awards on Jan. 24 in Beverly Hills.
