In 1989, Cruise received his first Oscar nomination and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in Oliver Stone's searing tale of Viet Nam veteran Ron Kovic in Born on the Fourth of July.

Anderson's ensemble drama Magnolia. His powerful performance earned him his third Academy nomination and his third Golden Globe Award, this time for Best Supporting Actor.
