Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
Filmed in Atlanta (another buddy film) it’s about a twenty year relationship between an old Jewish woman who needs a driver (played by Best Actor nominee Morgan Freeman). A weird year at the Academy Awards. Octogenarian Jessica Tandy won the Best Actress Oscar on her first nomination. Only the third Oscar winning Best Picture whose director wasn’t nominated it also received the Screenplay Writing Oscar. Dan Ackroyd received his only (to date) Oscar nomination in a Supporting role. Personally I preferred watching Ray (and Terence Mann) “go the distance” in Field of Dreams (1989). #77 on AFI’s 100 Most Inspiring Movies list.
