Most Overrated Oscar Winning Movies


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Elizabeth
22 Dances with Wolves

Man was this a boring movie! - MoldySock

23 A Beautiful Mind

I love Jennifer Connelly as an actress but she shouldn't won an oscar for THAT movie. An overrated movie and not so good in fact.

Lord of the Rings Fellow Ship of the rings deserved that OSCAR! - roblist

Lord of the rings fellow ship of the rings licks balls. it's a best movie ever

Films script was done by akiva goldsman who also wrote batman anf robin believe it or not

24 Shakespeare In Love

Really, the picked this crap over saving private Ryan! You got to be kidding me! Needs to be number 1!

Saving private Ryan was amazing! But this movie starring a terrible actress get picked over it!

25 Terms of Endearment
26 Hugo

This was a forgettable movie

27 Chicago

Worst best picture winner ever

Lol as someone from chicago this movie sucks!

28 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This movie deserves the praise it gets. Those bored with it can go back to their precious prequels.

It didn't win an oscar and I wish it did - Lucasw14

29 L.A. Confidential

It's supposed to be a film noir genre (in color this one ) but even the " not best " film noir of the forties is better than this one. Kim Bassinger ( although a very talented actress ) doesn't has that forties film noir femme fatale kind of presence in this movie. If you like the film noir genre go for the real thing ( any movie will do ) but you can easely skip this one. Too overrated!

It's not what's it's all cracked up to be.

30 Gosford Park
31 Crash
32 The English Patient

This an awful boring and soulless film

33 Argo
34 Birdman

This film is liked and disliked by many people. I liked it because Naomi Watts gives a good performance and she's one of my favorite actresses. As for the movie, if you expect an action movie about a superhero ( birdman ) then you will be for sure dissapointed. The movie is more dramatic and is about the flaws and problems of the characters. The camera work is exeptional and the lightning / photography very well done. Maybe overrated for the story ( but it's without a doubt watchable ) but certainly not overrated for the filmtechnique and the actors / actresses acting skills.

I couldn't stand watching this movie,it was so boring,I have no clue why anyone likes this movie.

35 Moonlight

Just because it had some black gay guy as a main character doesn't mean it had to win Best Picture. It only won for the sake of diversity and as retaliation to OscarsSoWhite.

This had no right winning Oscars. The only reason it did is this; everyone was coerced into voting for this movie to reverse the so-called Oscars so white backlash the previous year. If the voters didn't vote for Moonlight not only would the Academy be accused of racism but also of homophobia. In layman's terms the Academy were sucking up to the LGBT crowd. - jezza0

36 The Godfather Part II

As I said with the first Godfather movie, too long, but not very bad.

37 The Godfather

People put this movie and the lord of the rings on the list are just drunk or mad
