Nominated?: Yes, for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay and others.
Should've won?: Best Director - the Academy overlooked Tarantino's glorious, pulsing work in favour of Robert Zemeckis for slushy hit Forrest Gump. Gump also beat out Pulp Fiction for Best Picture - another safe, sappy choice - but QT and Roger Avery did at least bag the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar.
