Founded by Harvey and Bob Weinstein in 1979, Miramax was notorious for specifically creating OscarBait Movies and releasing them one after the other in order to appear to be the studio that "gets the most Oscars." They have released such Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films as ''Film/MyLeftFoot'', ''Film/TheCryingGame'', ''Film/ThePiano'', ''Film/PulpFiction'', ''Film/TheEnglishPatient'', ''Film/GoodWillHunting'', ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'', ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'', ''Film/{{Chicago}}'', ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'', ''Film/TheHours'', ''Film/ColdMountain'', ''Film/TheAviator'', ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'' and ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood''. (The last two released through the label after Harvey and Bob left.) However, they also produce movies that are not considered OscarBait, such as TheViewAskewniverse. This is the very company that launched Creator/QuentinTarantino's career as a director, producing the above mentioned ''Film/PulpFiction'' as well as ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', ''Film/KillBill'' and ''Film/JackieBrown''. It also released many action, thriller, and horror films, such as ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', ''Film/ScaryMovie'', ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater'', and ''Film/SpyKids'', all of which were released under Creator/DimensionFilms, Miramax's brand for genre films.

The Weinsteins left Miramax in 2005 to start another company known as Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany, which the Dimension Films brand was moved to. Owned by [[Creator/{{Disney}} The Walt Disney Company]] from 1993 to 2010, Miramax and its film library was then sold to Ron Tutor and his company Filmyard Holdings, only for it to be sold in 2016 to [=beIN=] Media Group. Creator/LionsGate now holds the home video rights to the Miramax catalog in the USA, and Creator/StudioCanal distributes those films overseas. Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany holds the rights to make any sequels to Miramax properties.
