Top Ten Best Movies Without Best Picture Oscar

The Top Ten

1 The Shawshank Redemption The Shawshank Redemption Product Image

Simply the best... but what else does one expect from the mind of Stephen King?

A perfect movie.. should have won Academy Award for Best Director, Film, Actor, Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Cinematography.

An extraordinary and uplifting film, that really deserved critical acclaim, its too bad Forest Gump was also a movie made in that year.

U wont see many movies, which has touched simplicity like this does. A pure Classic.

2 Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan Product Image

I've not seen Shakespeare in Love, but how that beat this, I will never know.

My father and I love to this movie

3 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

A flawless acting by the cast especially Heath Ledger, great story line and great direction. Too bad it did not even get the best picture nomination.

Slumdog millionaire is a crap compared to this

Mask of the phantasm anyone or am I alone

Tim Burton < Christopher Nolan agree and I love this movie and Christopher Nolan if you are reading this you are my hero.

4 GoodFellas GoodFellas Product Image
5 Citizen Kane Citizen Kane Product Image

Yeah, I think this didn't win because so many people thought it was bad. It was good it was nominated, though.

It's amazing how a whole audience's perception can change over time.

"For those who think it is overrated, watch all of the American cinema prior to this movie. Then watch Citizen Kane".

BEST MOVIE EVER! From technique to acting its just a masterpiece

6 There Will Be Blood There Will Be Blood Product Image
7 Pulp Fiction Pulp Fiction Product Image

Shawshank number 1...just keeping this above others

One of the best films of all time, somehow beat by Kramer vs. Kramer...

What a perfect movie! Should it get more than it did? Like for example be nominated for best picture. Avatar and Inception got nominated so why not The Avengers? Great sound mixing, great music, the best special effects I ever seen outside Pacific Rim, great sound editing, great cinematography, great everything. This was awesome!
