Movies That Should Have Won Best Picture

Movies that were nominated for Best Picture but lost.

The Top Ten

1 The Pianist

Lost to Chicago

2 Saving Private Ryan

A movie that progresses through the brotherhood of soldiers and honor of the Country to save a single Private for his mother. An amazing film and it should have won Best Picture. "Shakespeare in Love" is a nice chick flick but that's it. It'll be forgotten as another simple romance film that rocked the world for about a year. But "Saving Private Ryan" proved to be a benchmark for the standard of film-making centralised on warfare.
