Top 10 Worst Best Picture Oscar-Winning Movies



and the Oscar goes to really welcome to watchmojo.com and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 worst Best Picture Oscar winning movies for this list we've chosen movies that won the Academy Award for Best Picture but which we felt were eclipsed by films that didn't win or weren't even nominated the same year we're not saying the movies are bad but in hindsight their competition was stronger number ten Driving Miss Daisy Oh what you talking back one against born on the fourth of July Dead Poets Society do the right thing in 1989 movies like do the right thing glory and Miss Daisy examined race issues albeit in drastically different ways but only the story of an elderly Jewish woman and her kindly black driver nabbed Oscar gold we're not suggesting Driving Miss Daisy as a bad film but the Academy made the safe choice why on we just leave it like that number nine Gandhi one against Tutsi et the extra-terrestrial sometimes movie stand the test of time sometimes they don't unfortunately this Best Picture winner falls into the latter category and that I find hard to bet while Sir Ben Kingsley's performance and the film itself were allotted in their time today it's considered an over long corny snooze fest you know what movies do stand-up the one about a boy and an alien and the one about a guy in drag go figure an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind number 8 around the world in 80 days one against giant the king and I the ten commandments and Nagaina dang thing you gonna do about it people scratch their noggins when this beat a category full of epic classics today it's even crazier to think that a hot-air balloon topped Moses the King of Siam and James Dean around the world was basically a cash grab with the big name cameos gimmicky storytelling and overall spectacle of the film making it one of the big prizes weakest winners idea and it's masks you believe these piece things at once no woman has ever set foot in the club why not because that could spell the end of the petition number seven oliver 1-1 against funny girl Romeo and Juliet 2001 a Space Odyssey the Academy isn't afraid to honor a good musical or even a bad one Oliver is somewhere in the middle with Charles Dickens timeless tale being told through big-budget song and dance numbers 68 was a killer year for cinema so to think that Oliver brought home the gold while movies like this weren't even nominated is a mind bender I can see you're really upset about this number six how green was my Valley is there anything I can do indeed there is one against the Maltese Falcon Citizen Kane be reasonable Sam give us a break would you this film tackles the story of a poor mining town not exactly life in the fast lane but this isn't a case of the winning movie necessarily being bad it just competed against cinematic landmarks did you even know Citizen Kane didn't win the Oscar to be honest the only reason valley is at all memorable is because it beat Orson Welles game-changing masterpiece could I have your attention boys and girls I am not accustomed to speaking in public only public houses this use it's against the rules number 5 Dances with Wolves one against awakenings Ghost Goodfellas the members of the Academy are suckers for historically meaningful Civil War epics and this one even has Native Americans and subtitles and a dashingly handsome actor director who tries to save everyone you can't beat that but Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas should have they must not like the f-word or apparently Scorsese who was also snubbed for his 1980 tour de force Raging Bull kill and all she wrote in her fYI he finally won for the departed what are you retarded or something daddy right number four Chicago one against the Lord of the Rings the two towers The Pianist we've already mentioned how Oscar voters feel about musicals pretty much everyone in this movie was nominated with Catherine zeta-jones actually winning Best Supporting Actress well I was in such a state of shock I completely blacked out I can't remember saying but some critics complain that when it was adapted to celluloid Chicago lost what made it a great musical to begin with but there was another movie that year with plenty of soul she number three the English Patient won against Jerry Maguire Fargo yeah that's a good one to put it bluntly this movie was widely considered don't just die already die but sometimes you have to move past your boredom to truly appreciate an artistic and beautiful film no we're kidding no one wants to sit through an almost three hours long romance story set in the desert where the guy's face is burnt off you know what they do want to see precisely or how about a nice wood chipper number two Shakespeare and loved one against Saving Private Ryan in 1998 it was a triumph of the puff-piece the Oscars are notoriously dead set against comedies but Shakespeare is also a period piece which they loved and it had some fine acting and a breakthrough Gwyneth Paltrow performance maybe it was just time for a change regardless after crafting one of the grittiest most realistic and well regarded world war ii films ever Steven Spielberg must have been pissed Oh will you desist madam number one crash one against Brokeback Mountain Capote good night and good luck Munich you say to these butchers you didn't want to share this world with us then we don't have to share this room with you it's a star-studded carefully inter woven tale about race but a preachy one at that you're embarrassed you embarrass yourself when Paul Haggis is crash was announced as winner you could almost hear the collective gasp around Hollywood there were simply so many deserving movies that year and one in particular that examined another pressing social issue in a much more memorable and less patronizing way oh all right do you agree with our list I'm sorry Dave I'm afraid I can't do that which Best Picture winners were you most surprised about for more top tens about your favorite and least favorite flicks be sure to subscribe to watchmojo.com this will be posted

    I’m actually fed up that everyone says crash shouldn’t of won. Crash was a movie way before its time. It’s not only about race. It’s about race, tragedy, irony, family, and change. If you say a movie about two gay sheep herders is better than crash…well 👌

    Did renee zellweger finally leave Hollywood please tell me yes oh for the love of the gods please tell me she left at last my gods she sucks on every movie. The only one worse than her is Jennifer tilly who unless she is heard and not seen is mildly acceptable but only by the margin of nails being dragged over a chalk board. Hollywood please retire these two IMMEDIATELY

    I disagree with Chicago being on the list. Its the only movie from 2002 that I have seen and actually enjoyed. It totally deserved the Oscar. The same goes for Oliver.
