In the competition for best original screenplay, Khouri, Singleton and Toback were nominated with Lawrence Kasdan and Meg Kasdan for their "Grand Canyon" and Richard LaGravenese for "The Fisher King."

Musical categories were dominated by Disney's "Beauty and the Beast." Three songs from its score by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman were nominated for best song, including the title ballad. Also in this category was the best-selling pop hit "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You," from "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," recorded by Bryan Adams, and "When You're Alone" from "Hook," by John Williams and Leslie Bricusse.

Menken's "Beauty" score also was nominated for best score.
