The Question: Tom Hanks won Best Actor for “Forrest Gump” and what other ’90s film?
Saving Private Ryan
The ’90s were a good decade for Tom Hanks — and he has the awards to prove it. In 1994, he won his first Best Actor Oscar for the 1993 film “Philadelphia,” in which he played a gay lawyer battling both AIDS and homophobia. One year later, he took home his second statuette for playing the title role in 1994’s “Forrest Gump.” To date, he is one of only two men to win consecutive Best Actor Academy Awards. (Spencer Tracy was the first in 1938 and 1939.)
The correct answer is Philadelphia.
