The Best Pictures Oscars: A retrospective comparison

Recommended Posts

Well it's a new year, which means it's Oscar time. Which also means that its time to comment on the Academy's generally rotten judgement. This thread will compare will compare several retrospective judgements. First, there's Danny Peary's 1992 book Alternate Oscars (he also gave an opinion on the 1992 awards). Then there is theyshootpictures.com top 1000 movies of all time, and top 250 movies of the new century. Then there is Michael Gebert's 1995 Encyclopedia of Movie Awards. Then there are the Hindsight Awards, seen at http://www.madbeast.com/hindsight.htm. Then there is the opinion of the Armchair Oscars, at armchairoscars.com. Then there are the top 10s of the critic Robert Horton at his website The Crop Duster: http://roberthorton.wordpress.com/. Finally there's my opinion.

 

Now the Academy has never given Best Picture to a foreign language movie. Peary follows this. Gebert has separate awards for American and foreign films, though "foreign" includes Britain, and even some films made in Hollywood by foreign directors. Hindsight and Armchair do include foreign language films, but rarely and somewhat arbitarilily. The other sources do not distinguish between American and foreign language films. Because the first years of the oscars did not match calender years, there are two choices for the Cropduster before 1934.

 

With that in mind, here are the comparisons up to 1939. Future decades are on the way!

Skimpole, thanks for posting these comparisons. It's fun to compare official taste vs. later reappraisals. I actually prefer the Academy's choice of THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES (or HENRY V) to everybody else's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Often I don't even know my own mind: THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE? LETTER FROM AN UNKNOWN WOMAN? THE RED SHOES? (Repeat over and over, trying to decide.)
