Movies Which Should Have Won More Academy Awards

This List includes Motion pictures which should have won more Academy Awards than it already recieved...

The Top TenXW

1Ben Hur (1959)

The All-time Leader! But 11 Oscars are not enough for this Incomprehensible Masterpiece! - Nirmal1991USA

2Forrest Gump (1994)

This Movie made Tom Hanks the Greatest Actor of All-time! It should have won more Oscars...

Feel sorry for The Shawshank Redemption because if it had been released any year other than 1994, it would have definitely won the Best Picture of the Year...

I love this movie! I haven't gotten to see the end... That I'm aware of at least. - MoldySock

Dare I point out that Shawshank was never going to be a serious BP contender. For me it was a 3 horse race between Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and Four Weddings & a Funeral.

3Rain Man (1988)
4The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

If Forrest Gump was made any year except 1994, The Shawshank Redemption would have won the Best Picture that year alongside with the Incredible Morgan Freeman winning the Best Actor...

An extremely rare occasion where 2 of the Greatest Movies of all time on any given list, review or ranking were made on the same year...

5Rocky (1976)

Sylvester Stallone should have won the Best Actor!

7The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

It won the main awards, but it could've won more if it wanted to. - dureckl

8A Beautiful Mind (2001)
9The Golden Compass (2007)

The artistry was truly stunning. A sort of half-way house between Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia.

Was definitely more worthy of the Art Direction Oscar than Sweeney Todd of all things.

The only people who got pissed off by this movie's visual effects win were the purvy Transformers fanboys who thought Megan Fox's ass was more oscar worthy than a heroic polar bear.

10Inception (2010)

The Contenders

11The Dark Knight (2008)
12Saving Private Ryan (1998)
13Gladiator (2000)

Should have won less if you ask me. - Mrveteran

14Aliens (1986)
15Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
16Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
172001: a Space Odyssey (1968)
18Citizen Kane (1941)
19The Elephant Man (1980)
20Apocalypse Now (1979)
