Private Benjamin Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Keith Simanton

A pampered socialite (Goldie Hawn) is so distraught after the wedding-night death of her husband (Albert Brooks) that she up and joins the Army. She whines, she pouts, she brings the corps down, until, of course, she gets with it. Eileen Brennan received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as the butch Captain Doreen Lewis, Benjamin's nemesis. Funny and winning, the film takes an odd turn when Benjamin is assigned to the international theater and gets involved with a dour Frenchman (Armand Assante). Of course, it's all part of Benjamin's growth as a person, and the part confirmed that Hawn had gone from a go-go girl to a "you go" girl. 

Academy Awards

Private Benjamin received Academy Award nominations for Actress (Goldie Hawn), Supporting Actress (Eileen Brennan), and Writing (Best Screenplay written directly for the screen; Nancy Meyers, Charles Shyer, Harvey Miller).
