Forrest Gump (1994)

Gary Sinise as "Lt. Dan Taylor"

Slow-witted Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother (Sally Field), he leads anything but a restricted life. Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star, fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism. But one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save -- his childhood love, the sweet but troubled Jenny (Robin Wright).

Academy Award (1994) Nominated Best Supporting Actor
Golden Globe (1994) Nominated Best Performance By an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Screen Actors Guild Awards (1994) Nominated Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
