roblist
Movies we know that were considered the greatest of all time, but did not get nominated for the Best Picture Award

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight

ONE of the greatest films of all time

GREAT PERFORMANCES FROM CHRISTIAN BALE AND

ESPECIALLY HEATH LEDGER

HE MADE THIS MOVIE WHAT IT WAS

GREAT FILMMAKING FROM CHRISTOPHER NOLAN, DEFINATELY HIS BEST FILM

IT GOT NOMINATED FOR 8 OSCARS AND WON2

BUT FOR SOME REASON GOT SNUBBED FROM BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR

THAT GETS ME QUESTIONING WHETHER THE ACADEMY UNDERSTAND TASTE IN PICKING THEIR BEST PICTURE MOVIES

UNBELIEVEABLE

IMDb: 8. 9/10

Top Movies of All Time: This Website - #13

one of my favourite movies!

Nolan's opus deserves to be remembered as the film that proved to the world that even comic book movies can be art. Sadly the Academy just couldn't see it.

It was one of the biggest oscar snubs ever - PeeledBanana
