Top 10 Most Undeserved Oscar Wins of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Crash - Best Picture
2 Suicide Squad - Best Makeup And Hairstyling

I feel like people only thought this was undeserving just because they didn’t like the movie. Not because of the makeup. Although, Star Trek definitely should’ve won. - MegaSoulhero

3 Shakespeare In Love - Best Picture
4 Titanic - Best Picture
5 Jennifer Lawrence - Best Actress Jennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

True Jessica Chastain should have won for Zero Dark Thirty instead of Jennifer Lawrence.

One of the worst actresses of all time. - MegaSoulhero

I 100% agree. there is plenty of A list talent that don't have oscars yet, but yet she gets one. her performance was just trying too hard to be charming.

6 Sandra Bullock - Best Actress Sandra Annette Bullock is an American actress and producer. She is one of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, and is an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winner.
7 Morgan Freeman - Best Supporting Actor
8 John G. Avildson - Best Director
9 Helen Hunt - Best Actress
10 Gwyneth Paltrow - Best Actress

I can name plenty of actresses that are more worthy of an oscar.

The Contenders

11 The Silence of the Lambs - Best Picture
12 Chicago - Best Picture
13 Forrest Gump - Best Picture

That was Pulp Fiction's award, fair & square.

14 Argo - Best Picture

Really. Argo? Movies like The Dark Knight Rises, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Life of Pi are even better. The Dark Knight Rises types of movies won't never get oscars. We all know. No matter how good they're. Critics always give oscars to drama movies. But Life of Pi deserved that. - zxm

15 American Sniper - Best Sound Editing

In a year with movies like 'Whiplash' and 'Interstellar', and THIS is the movie that wins for Sound Editing? - SuperSonic17
