Academy Awards Best Picture: What should have won… IMHO

Recommended Posts

After reading the very thoughtful thread started by TopBilled titled “WHY ARE TCM PROGRAMMERS SLAMMING THE 1952 OSCAR FOR BEST PICTURE?, and all of the responses to this thread I began to think of other years where the Academy’s choices for Best Picture really were not the best choice for that year. Now as some of you are aware, I love to compile lists. In fact over on the Your Favorites Forum, several years ago I started a thread titled: LISTS. In this thread I listed many of the films I have in my personal library and I also asked fellow TCM’ers if they would like to list some of their favorite films, actors, directors, themes and so on. So, here I go once again…

 

In response to this excellent thread started by TopBilled I would like to get your responses and or thoughts to some of the choices I have written about for this thread and see where any discussion might go. What do you all think?

I agree about THE WIND. It was certainly worthy of the Best Picture award in 1928/29.

I would have picked CROSSFIRE or BLACK NARCISSUS for 1947, over GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT.

Re: 1979's choices, I think THE CHINA SYNDROME and NORMA RAE are both better than KRAMER VS. KRAMER.

Interestingly THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION has a much higher rating (9.3) on the IMDb than FORREST GUMP (8.8). Over two million people have rated SHAWSHANK, so on average, it has received a 9 or a 10 out of 10 from all those users.

Certainly Reds should have won over Chariots of Fire, but the Academy was concerned about being perceived as too lefty. And certainly Brokeback Mountain should have won over Crash, but the Academy was concerned about being perceived as too gay.

And last year -- The Shape of Water was a big bore. Three Billboards...  should have won.

And in 1965, all of the other nominees were superior to My Fair Lady. Great stage show, not such a great film. Of the nominees, Becket, Dr. Strangelove, Zorba, Mary Poppins, were all superior.

There are many other examples as well. I would definitely pick The Grapes of Wrath over Rebecca.

And Nashville or Barry Lyndon over One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Btw, I'm happy with the 1941 and 1942 winners: How Green Was My Valley and Mrs. Miniver. There were other great films nominated in those two years (Citizen Kane and Sergeant York in '41; The Magnificent Ambersons and Yankee Doodle Dandy in '42), but I think the winners deserved to win. 

I do not consider The Maltese Falcon to be a great film; and I do not consider Suspicion to be one of Hitchcock's best. (As I've already said, I think The Grapes of Wrath should have won in 1940. Unlike Mrs. Danvers, I'm not a fan of Rebecca.)

I don't think anyone could have liked Rebecca de Winter as much as Mrs. Danvers did.

IMO, all three of these are really strong movies. 1979 was a really strong year. Boy, I see The China Syndrome didn't even get a Best Picture nomination. I would have happily dislodged Breaking Away from the five nominees. It's just fine, but China Syndrome is the movie between the two I'd rather watch right now.

I must admit I rarely square with the Academy's top pick, even if I do find most of the winners to be good films. If I was to pull out the best film from each lineup, my personal wins would look like this. Films in bold are ones that actually won. This does not filter in personal favorites, upon which this would look different.

20s: Wings/The Crowd, The Broadway Melody (by default. Its the only year where I've seen only one nominee)

30s: All Quiet on the Western Front, Cimarron, The Smiling Lieutenant, 42nd Street, The Thin Man, David Copperfield, Dodsworth, Stage Door, You Can't Take It With You, Gone With the Wind

40s: Rebecca, Citizen Kane, Random Harvest, Heaven Can Wait (though Casablanca was a fine winner), Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, The Red Shoes, A Letter to Three Wives

50s: Sunset Boulevard, A Streetcar Named Desire, High Noon, Roman Holiday, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Marty, Friendly Persuasion, 12 Angry Men, Auntie Mame, The Diary of Anne Frank

60s: The Apartment, Judgment at Nuremberg, To Kill a Mockingbird, How the West Was Won, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, A Man for All Seasons, Bonnie and Clyde, Rachel Rachel, Anne of the Thousand Days

70s: Patton, Nicholas and Alexandra/Fiddler on the Roof (one or the other), The Godfather, The Sting, Chinatown, Nashville, Network, Julia, An Unmarried Woman, All That Jazz

80s: Ordinary People, On Golden Pond, ET, Tender Mercies, Amadeus, Out of Africa, Children of a Lesser God, Broadcast News, The Accidental Tourist, My Left Foot

90s: Dances with Wolves, Beauty and the Beast, Unforgiven, The Piano, Quiz Show, Sense and Sensibility (but why on earth was the masterful Dead Man Walking snubbed when it was up for both lead acting prizes and directing?), Secrets and Lies, Titanic Shakespeare in Love, The Green Mile

00s: Erin Brockovich, Gosford Park, Chicago, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Capote, The Queen, Atonement, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Precious

10s: True Grit, The Help, Les Miserables, Nebraska, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Brooklyn, La La Land, Phantom Thread

23 matches. A little more than 25%. But of those 23, only 9 would be my personal pick of all those films released in that given year. So, if judging from that regard, right around 10%.

And what is your choice for 2018?

I haven't seen enough of the awards contenders to say. My favorite film of 2018 so far is Hereditary.

The likely nominees include:

  • Black Panther
  • Blackkklansman
  • Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • Eighth Grade
  • The Favourite
  • First Reformed
  • Green Book
  • If Beale Street Could Talk
  • Roma
  • A Star Is Born
  • Widows

Of those, I've seen Black Panther (enjoyable but no Best Picture), Blackkklansman (very good but uneven), Eighth Grade (wildly overpraised), and First Reformed (I loved it, but it may be too dark for many). I'll be watching Roma, the favorite to win, later this week.

And Nashville or Barry Lyndon over One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

I disagree. one flew over the cuckoo's nest is unforgettable.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
  • Barry Lyndon
  • Dog Day Afternoon
  • Jaws

As I stated earlier, this was a very good year for Best Picture nominees, and any of the five deserved to win.
