TOP 10: Biggest Oscar Blunders...

In honor of the complete mess that is known as The Academy Award's, I've decided to come up with my list of the top 10 Blunders made by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences...

10. 2001 - Best Foreign Language Film - No Man's Land beats out Amelie
9. 1996 - Best Picture - The English Patient beats out Fargo
8. 2006 - Best Picture - The Departed beats out Babel
7. 2001 - Best Director - Ron Howard (Beautiful Mind) beats out David Lynch (Mulholland Drive)
6. 1999 - Best Director - Sam Mendes (American Beauty) beats out Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich)
5. 1990 - Best Picture - Dances With Wolves beats Goodfellas
4. 2002 - Best Actor In A Leading Role - Adrian Brody beats Daniel Day-Lewis for Gangs of New York
3. 1976 - Best Picture - Rocky beats All The Presidents Men, Taxi Driver, and Network
2. 2004 - Best Animated Feature - Finding Nemo beats out The Tripletts of Belleville
1. 1994 - Best Picture - Pulp Fiction loses to Forrest Gump

What are some of your biggest dissapointments?

Go see something good!


  1. Don't you mean The Departed beats out Letters from Iwo Jima? :)

  2. This year. The Reader instead of Revolutionary Road? Or Milk instead of Revolutionary Road??? I mean, don´t get me wrong - Milk is a great story with some great performances and deserves acclaim for the topic alone. But still - its more a TV movie than a cinematic event.

    As far as blunders from the past.....
    hmmmmm......there are so many don´t know where to start. And why is Di Caprio again being snubbed???
