The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Martian
22 Brokeback Mountain V 1 Comment
23 Beauty and the Beast

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

24 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

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

25 Scarface

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

26 Gravity

12 Years A Slave was great but you'll never find a movie this good for a while

27 The Green Mile

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

28 The 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.

29 American Sniper
30 American Hustle
31 The Descendants
32 The Social Network
33 Django Unchained
34 The Sixth Sense
