An inspirational and sad story about a man aging backwards, another masterpiece by David Fincher, Brad Pitt is stellar in this movie, his best part yet

Lost to Slumdog Millionaire - roblist

30The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

A timeless masterpiece added to Peter Jackson's collection, his second movie on this list, the stunning sequel to the Fellowship of the Ring, considered one of the greatest sequels of all time

Lost to Chicago - roblist

I think the reason Chicago won was because Chicago made musicals hip again. Without Moulin Rouge and Chicago there wouldn't be a Mamma Mia film. However 2 Towers was the better film.


It should have been nominated. In fact, it should have won. - BeatlesFan1964
