Movies That Didn't Win Oscars But Should Have


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Cinderella Man
22 Hoosiers
23 Memento

It is a miracle that this didn't win Best Original Screenplay, or Best Director.

24 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

It won Best Original Screenplay, and Kate Winslet was nominated for Best Actress. Jim Carrey and the film itself should have been nominated. - BeatlesFan1964

I know it won Best Original Screenplay, but it should of won Best Picture. It wasn't even nominated! -

25 Field of Dreams
26 Marvel's The Avengers

Should've won the visual effects award. - Lucasw14

27 Eight Men Out
28 Constantine
29 Transformers

Should've won the visual effects award - Lucasw14

30 Trainspotting
31 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
32 Armageddon
33 The Breakfast Club
34 The Harry Potter Series
35 The Day the Earth Stood Still

Sci-Fi doesn't get enough awards

36 Groundhog Day
37 Jackie Brown

Considering what an awards juggernaut Tarantino is, it's a shame that this went overlooked while his weaker work a decade later got all the glory. At the very least, Pam Grier should have got a Best Actress nod, since her performance is great and is one of the most underrated of the 90s. - Mrveteran

Its only nomination was Best Supporting Actor (Robert Forster). It should have been nominated for Best Actress (Pam Grier) and Best Adapted Screenplay. - BeatlesFan1964

38 Warrior
39 The Intouchables
40 Goodfellas

Lost to Dances with Wolves; so unfortunate

Joe Pesci won for Best Supporting Actor. - BeatlesFan1964
