The Top Ten
It is hard to understand why the film didn't receive universal acclaim from the very beginning. It took a number of years before people recognized how terrific it was. - BKAllmighty
Forest Gump was great, but Shawshank is fantastic. And fantastic beats great.
I Don't know I recon it was better then Forrest Gump, but really I can see why forrest won Fantastic!
One of the best movies I have ever seen.
Considered the greatest War movie of all time, Tom Hanks leads a great cast of actors, Vin Diesel, Matt Damon, etc in this Action Drama, an inspirational story.
Lost to Shakespeare in Love - roblist
At the very least, the opening half an hour is one of the most intense battle scenes in cinema, and that alone deserved some recognition, especially when it lost to a bloody romantic comedy! - Mrveteran
Ironically most people complain that the Academy rarely awards comedies. - jezza0
This movie is an inspirational masterpiece, but lost to a movie starring that snob Gwyneth Paltrow!
A great war movie, in my opnion the best. It doenst highlight Action and visual effects in this movie, this looks at the insight of the Vietnam War and the traumatizing effects it had on the soldiers taking part, Francis Ford Coppolla is a masterpiece at directing long and interresting movies
Lost to Kramer vs. Kramer - roblist
This movie had a great cast of Characters, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Sir Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Liv Tyler and Cate Blanchett
This movie lost to A Beautiful Mind - roblist
It was extreamly well done! It should have won without question
Very artistic and so entertaining
Fantastic film, and one of my favourites. I understand the Academy like to root for underdogs sometimes, but this wasn't the time for that. - MrveteranV 1 Comment
The greatest Sci Fi of all time, winner of 6 Oscars, it was just missing one, Best Picture
This movie lost to Annie Hall - roblist
Annie Hall is a great movie of another genre, and has the sophistication and intelligence which the Oscar awards prefers over flash and mass audience appeal - Billyv
Annie Hall is actually the superior movie. Most of you guys probably haven't seen it. - BeatlesFan1964
Annie Hall didn't deserve for an Oscar and definitely was worse than star wars - dubbelvla
The best Indiana Jones there is, The greatest Adventure there is. Stunning visual effects, just like every single other Indiana Jones and Excellent sound, this was the beginning of one of the biggest Franchises in history, this is were the repuatation started
Lost to Chariots of Fire - roblist
I my opinion Forest Gump is a great film
But not better then pulp fiction
Robert Carlyle and his team of plucky out of work Brits attempt to put on a strip show ala The Chip 'n' Dale's in this funny Brit flick.
With unemployment on the rise this movie is even more relevant now than it was back in '97.
As Good As It Gets
Good Will Hunting
And the Full Monty all lost to
Probably the toughest year in the Oscars.
I think this movie lost because the Oscars don't usually pick comedies, but it's a real shame they didn't.
My all time favourite movie.
It is known as one of the all time greats, yet it lost to a forgotten movie by John Ford.
C'mon! AFI grants this the Greatest film of all time, Orson Welles directs and acts this movie brilliantly, an excellent storyline and a great cast of Classic actors
Lost to How Green Was My Valley - roblist
Great movie. When I saw it, I was expecting to respect it, but not like it as much as I did. - BeatlesFan1964
Best film ever put out their. There is a controversy to why it didn't win.
An unforgettable story starring Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise and Demi Moore I mean how can you forget one of the greatest quotes of all time
"You Cant Handle The Truth"
Lost to Unforgiven - roblist
Not a very good movie. Not bad. Not great. Nicholson was great though. - BeatlesFan1964
A great mob flick, an excellent True Story on the lives of three mob men, Joe Pesci, plays his part so well
Lost to Dances With Wolves - roblist
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.
The first ever animated movie to be nominated for Best Picture! HOW was this not already on here?!
Because the winner was The Silence of the Lambs, a better movie. Don't get me wrong though, Beauty and the Beast is fantastic. - BeatlesFan1964
Crash won instead of this?
Great visual effects and stunning sound, this movie was the sure favourite to win the award, only taking out 3 Oscars, This is the highest grossing movie of all time
Lost to The Hurt Locker - roblist
This should of won, I like it
It should have been nominated. In fact, it should have won. - BeatlesFan1964
It wasn't nominated
12 Years A Slave was great but you'll never find a movie this good for a while
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
a timeless, inspirational and magical, don't forget funny story about a Cell Block and a prisoner who was sentenced for a crime he didn't commit, Must be Stephan King's greatest novel of all time
Lost to American Beauty - roblist
A great film highlighting the life of famous Aviator and Director Howard Hughes, Another Martin Scorses instant classic, excellent acting from Leo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett
Winner of 5 Oscars
