Oscar winning movies that suckby Josh_LocateTV

Admittedly I haven't followed the brief exactly, but here are a list of films that I believe do not deserve their Oscars, not ones that necessarily suck
  • 1 Chicago

    Chicago

    Watch 'Chicago' on DVD.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Chicago but it is by no means special and under close inspection, it actually sucks. Catchy songs should not justify rubbish plot development.

  • 2 American Beauty

    American Beauty

    Watch 'American Beauty' on TV, on DVD.

    A black comedy that I don't find funny. Or interesting. Or engaging. Or ground breaking. No the level of excellence an oscar-winning film should exhibit.

  • 3 Moulin Rouge!

    Moulin Rouge!

    Watch 'Moulin Rouge!' on TV, on DVD.

    The very fact that this wretched monstrosity was even nominated is outstanding. Never has there been a greater case of style over substance. The plot is stupid with characters often acting illogically, inconsistently or just plain otherworldly.

  • 4 The King's Speech

    The King's Speech

    Watch 'The King's Speech' on DVD.

    I understand that this film is technically amazing but it is shamefully oscar-fodder and rather dull.

    The Hurt Locker

    Just because it was about time that a woman should win the 'Best Director oscar' doesn't mean they should give it to the first female director that they find.

  • 6 Slumdog Millionaire

    Slumdog Millionaire

    Watch 'Slumdog Millionaire' on DVD.

    Okay, Slumdog didn't suck, it was just kind of average and especially considering that the Curious Case of Benjamin Button was an awful lot better.

    The Godfather

    Watch 'The Godfather' on TV, on DVD.

    This one is here as more of a plea: what is it that makes this film so special? Why does everyone love it so much? Other than great acting, what on Earth did this film do to garner the response that it has had?
