How come this film won an Oscar for Best Screenplay, while Cameron's 1997 film wasn't even nominated for it?

They both seem to be mostly melodramatic soap operas, but I guess that was popular in the 50s, so the 53 film got it.

1958's A Night to Remember also wasn't nominated for the Academy Awards since it was a British film, but it did win Best Foreign Film at the Golden Globes.
