We just completed a game of nominating the 20 worst choices for the Best Picture (or equivalent) Oscar winner. In doing this 18 films did not receive one single nomination. So I am going to overreach and start a second game using these films to come up with a list of the 10 most desrving Best Picture winners. Now some of these pictures might have made it because one film in its group was so bad that it got all the derision, so some of these films will not live long on the list. But I feel that these films will drop off fast.
Two films that received one nomination are also being included to bring the list up to 20 since I know people will be asking why they are not on the list.
So here are the overall rules.
1. Vote once a day.
2. Copy the previous persons post and note who you followed.
3. Add one point to the film you feel is the Best of the Best and subtract one point to the film you feel is least deserving to be on the list.
4. Note the film you add one to and the film you minused one from. (If the film goes to zero remove)
5. If you want you can elaborate on your choices but this is not required.
The following is the list of films that made the cut:
1927/28 (1st) - Wings (Outstanding Picture) (5)
1927/28 (1st) - Sunrise (Artistic Quality of Production) (5)
1934 (7th) - It Happened One Night (5)
1939 (12th) -Gone with the Wind (5)
1940 (13th) - Rebecca (5)
1941 (14th) - How Green Was My Valley (5)
1942 (15th) - Mrs. Miniver (5)
1950 (23rd) - All about Eve (5)
1957 (30th) - The Bridge on the River Kwai (5)
1958 (31st) - Gigi (5)
1959 (32nd) - Ben-Hur (5)
1960 (33rd) - The Apartment (5)
1964 (37th) - My Fair Lady (5)
1965 (38th) - The Sound of Music (5)
1970 (43rd) - Patton (5)
1972 (45th) - The Godfather (5)
1974 (47th) - The Godfather Part II (5)
1988 (61st) - Rain Man (5)
1998 (71st) - Shakespeare in Love (5)
2003 (76th) - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (5)
And the final results and TOP 10 are...
1. All About Eve
3. The Bridge on the River Kwai
4. Mrs Miniver
5. The Apartment
8. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
9. The Sound of Music
