THE OSCARS: 10 BEST PICTURE WINNERS THAT SHOULD HAVE LOST



LISA SCHWARZBAUM and OWEN GLEIBERMAN – EW’S esteemed film critics – have selected ten BEST PICTURE winners that should have lost to their respective competition.

Don’t get me wrong. I genuinely like some of these movies. But BEST PICTURE is BEST PICTURE…and some of the alternatives were much more worthy.

LISA makes compelling cases for:

PULP FICTION over FORREST GUMP
GOODFELLAS over DANCES WITH WOLVES
REDS over CHARIOTS OF FIRE
BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN over CRASH

OWEN carries the torch for:

MOONSTRUCK over THE LAST EMPEROR
GIANT over AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
E.T. over GANDHI
CITIZEN KANE over HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY
