Creator Backlash: A minor one, but Richard Attenborough stated numerous times that Steven Spielberg's ET should've won the all Best Director and Best Picture awards instead of him, he actually apologized to Spielberg at the Director Guild Awards. Spielbeg was so touched that Attenborough was later cast in Jurassic Park.
Fake Nationality: Kind of. Ben Kingsley is British by birth, though he is of Indian descent. His birth name was Krishna Bhanji.
Kingsley's father was actually the same ethnicity as Gandhi: Gujarati.
