Lunch Break Video: Scenes from “Broadcast News”
God I love this movie and these scenes give you a taste of why.
It’s 1987′s Broadcast News starring Holly Hunter, Albert Brooks and William Hurt – all Oscar nominated – as well as a hilarious Joan Cusack who leads off these scenes with one of the best scenes of the movie. I just love when she runs into the drinking fountain.
Also, the line at the end is so classic. Holly’s boss sarcastically says to her that it must be nice to always be the smartest person in the room. She responds, in all seriousness, with this gem: “No, it’s awful.”
Hunter probably would have won the Oscar most years because she is brilliant here but it was the year of Cher and Moonstruck. Also nominated that year was Glenn Close for Fatal Attraction so it was stiff competition. Holly would win several years later for The Piano.
Enjoy some moments from Broadcast News!
