Besides boffo box office, this movie skyrocketed the careers of star Hugh Grant and screenwriter Richard Curtis, who would work together again in "Notting Hill" and "Love Actually." It also was one of the first mainstream romantic comedies to casually feature a committed gay couple (played by John Hannah and Simon Callow).
The film was nominated for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay Oscars, but lost out to "Forrest Gump" and "Pulp Fiction," respectively.
So, where is the cast now? Most are still hard at work but a few are no longer with us. Pardon if we get a bit melancholy and replay Hannah's reading of W.H. Auden's poem, "Stop All The Clocks."
