Top Oscar Failures

Here's a list of movies from the BBC news Web site that, although they were great, inexplicably failed to get a Best Picture Oscar (r), or even a nomination, in some cases, the year they were eligible.
Film critic and Radio Times columnist Barry Norman said: "Looking at this list really exposes the major voting mistakes Academy members have made over the years.

"Each of these films have left their own indelible mark on the face of movie history, but amazingly, all managed to go home empty-handed in the major categories on their respective Oscar nights."

Number one on the list is The Shawshank Redemption . Rent it from Netflix .


  1. This just scratches the surface of the mistakes the Academy has made. They routinely overlook excellent movies in favor of popular, big-budget films and big-name actors.
