YMMV: Get Shorty
  • Award Snub: John Travolta did get a Golden Globes for Best Actor in a Comedy for playing Chili, but wasn't even nominated for the Oscars. Considering this was coming during the "comeback period" of Pulp Fiction throughout The Nineties, this was a slight snub.
    • A decent Elmore Leonard -based screenplay not even getting a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination? HUGE snub.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Chili Palmer, who almost effortlessly manages to play, manipulate or outwit everyone he meets.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Renee Props as Nicki, Martin Weir's rock star girlfriend.
    • Bette Midler as the widow of Harry's screenwriter.
  • Retroactive Recognition: James Gandolfini as Bear, a few years before playing Tony.
