An Officer and a Gentleman Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Richard Gere plays an enrollee at a Naval officers candidate school, and Debra Winger is the woman who wants him. That's pretty much it, story-wise, in this romantic drama, which is more effective in a moment-to-moment, scene-by-scene way, where the two stars and Oscar-winner Louis Gossett Jr.--as Gere's tough-as-nails drill instructor--are fun to watch. Sexy, syrupy, with occasional pitches of high drama (Gere having a near-breakdown during training is pretty strong), An Officer and a Gentleman proves to be a no-brainer date movie.

Academy Awards

An Officer and a Gentleman received Academy Awards for Supporting Actor (Louis Gossett, Jr.) and Music Best Song (Jack Nitzsche - Music, Buffy Sainte-Marie - Music, Will Jennings - Lyrics). It was nominated for Best Actress (Debra Winger), Writing (Best Screenplay written directly for the screen; Douglas Day Stewart), Film Editing (Peter Zinner), and for Music Scoring Awards (Best Original Score; Jack Nitzsche).
