** Even worse, their pandering is commonly criticized for refusing to allow more deserving films win [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Best Picture]]. It's telling that 1996 & 1998's winners ''Film/TheEnglishPatient'' and ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'' are now seen as DeaderThanDisco, while the other nominees such as ''Film/{{Fargo}}'' and ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' are viewed as modern classics. Ouch.

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'', which were released under Creator/DimensionFilms, Miramax's brand for genre films.
