These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Broadcast News
Award Snub: In a way. Though the film was nominated for several Oscars, including Best Picture of the Year, it ended up winning none, largely due to being overshadowed by The Last Emperor and Moonstruck. Albert Brooks' supporting performance and James L. Brooks' screenplay were probably the closest the film came to winning anything.
Informed Attractiveness: Tom's incredibly great looks compared to Aaron's frumpiness is a major aspect of the movie, but William Hurt, though a reasonably good-looking guy, really isn't (and wasn't then) the Adonis he's portrayed as.
Retroactive Recognition: Marc Shaiman, noted composer, gets a bit part (during the "Big Finish!" scene), just before he became a well-known musician.
