Best Picture Oscar Winners That Didn't Deserve Itegnomac It's never easy picking a Best Picture winner but some years you have to wonder why some movies win over movies that are much more deserving.
The Top TenXW
This is so weird. Why would Shakespeare In Love win over Saving Private Ryan. I never seen either film but Saving Private Ryan should have won. It doesn't sound right if Schindler's List was the only film by Spielberg that actually did win best picture.
Every one who voted for Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan for best picture all deserve the hell they've made for themselves. - egnomac
Elizabeth or Saving Private Ryan should have one. And Cate Blanchett should have won over Gwyneth Paltrow!
How is this not so good cringe rom com about Shakespeare's person life better then saving private RyanV2 Comments
Did anyone actually see this movie it even surprises me that this movie was nominated at all. - egnomac
Not a bad movie, just no where near as good as the likes of Hugo, Midnight in Paris, or The Tree of Life. - Badwolf
It Won Only Because It Is B/w
I find it hard to believe this boring movie beat out such greats as The Social Network, 127 Hours and Inception - egnomac
Not bad, but inception really deserved the oscar
Nothing against Kathryn Bigelow but Avatar was the movie everyone paid their hard earned money to see that year - egnomac
Slumdog Millionaire is nothing compared to The Dark Knight. It is considered one of the greatest films ever made and didn't even get nominated
Why the dark knight don't was nominated?V1 Comment
Gangs of New York should have won but apparently the academy loves musicals better than movies better than movies that are really good. - egnomac
Why did the Academy give The Award for this Movie I'm not saying the Academy is stupid or dumb its just that it doesn't deserve to Win Best Picture The Two Towers should have won
Gangs of New York, or The Pianist should have won!
The Two Towers is Way better than this musicalV1 Comment
Goodfellas should have won the award. Great storyline, great acting (Joe Pesci and Robert de Niro). Truly it was a masterpiece by Martin Scorsese.
An over-long epic film that doesn't do much for me in the way of movies. - dureckl
If Citizen Kane is suppose to be the greatest movie of all time than how in the world did it lose to this forgettable movie. - egnomac
This movie proves that Oscars is all politics. It deals with racist issues so the political correct thing to do is give this movie an oscar. But the movie itself was very lame and there were too much cliches being used. As for the acting nobody was standing out for this picture. All this actors and actresses ( some are overrated ) were certainly not giving their best performances, despite what the press told us. This is the kind of movie you only watch one time and than you forget about it, because there's no one scene in it that will stuck in your mind afterwards. It's so lame in fact that this movie will not give you something to think about.
This was such a pretentious, silly movie. It was all, "People are still racists even when they think they're not." Yeah, we know. This film beat "Brokeback Mountain" for best picture which was a mistake. People still talk about, refer to, joke about "Brokeback"; who ever references "Crash"? I'm still bitter about it, obviously. - Blue_Devereaux
Not as bad as everyone says but it was just too contrived. And obviously much better films nominated that year.
Both the movies deserve an oscar
Great movie but There Will Be Blood should have won the best picture - egnomac
Forrest Gump beat Pulp Fiction AND The Shawshank Redemption!
Not the worst movie of all time but certainly not one of the best movies of all time. The many Oscars and nominations for this movie were exagerrated. As a matter of fact, I found this movie even very boring at some moments in the film. It's almost a pitty that Sally Field ( one of my favorite actresses ) was in that movie. And Tom Hanks didn't really deserved a oscar for his performance. In other words ; A too overrated movie that didn't deserve all that attention!
In my opinion, boyhood was better, and why they don't nominated interstellar?
Outstanding performances of the actors and actresses ( especially Naomi Watts as usual ) and exeptional camera and lightning techniques but the story or script wasn't worthy enough to be nominated in the first place.
Boring as almost every Meryl Streep movie.
Overlong and dull. It looks nice but is really just a melodrama
Boring and overrated with an winning boring and overrated actress ( Jennifer Lawrence ).
No, it didn't deserve the award... Probably why it didn't win it
