What's the worst flick to win the Oscar for Best Picture?
>>
OP is correct.
Any other choice is wrong. Period.

You already posted it

What problem do people have with The Hurt Locker? I thought it was a great fucking movie.
>>
>>64561776
>>64561837
>>64561894
What about Driving Miss Daisy?
>>
>>64561926
I liked it when I was 16. That is definitive proof that it was bad. Good art should alienate casuals.
>>
>>64561926
OP's pic is Crash.
>>
>>64561926
It just pains me to see The Hurt Locker would win Best Picture over Saving Private Ryan, a much superior war film

fuck off Shakespeare in Love
>>
>>64562005
Shakespeare in Love is fucking fantastic, also The Thin Red Line is better.
>>
>>64561926
it was absolutely just kind of ok
>>
Argo fuck yourself
>>
The Artist

holy shit what a forgettable piece of trash besides it's """""""gimmick"""""""""

there's tons of actual silent-era movies that are a million times better
>>
>>64562377
it was a really weak field that year
>>64562005
>>64561926
weak field in 2009 too

I'll submit, The English Patient from 1996, which somehow beat out Fargo. I have never met a single person who says they enjoyed The English Patient, whereas Fargo is one of the best films of the 90s
>>
Argo
>>
>>64561776
my utterly liberal parents recommended me this film and it has to be the apex of white guilt
>>
>>64562005

Saving private ryan is overrated and has shit acting mugfog
>>
>>64562661
>shit acting

Not really
>>
>>64561776
Your favorite movie, OP
>>
>>64561776
Crash, Shakespeare in Love, 12 years a slave, The Artist, English Patient, and even though it didn't win Inception getting a nomination is the greatest tragedy in the history of the Academy
>>
>>64562770
But Dude, Where's My Car? didn't win any Oscars.
>>
Forrest Gump
Not kidding. Film takes place over several decades and manages to say nothing about any of them or any of the historically significant people in them. It's not as if the cinematography, writing, or directing are spectacular either. This is even more suprising because Hanks, Zemeckis, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, and Sally Field are all proven talents that have made great movies and proven they can save bad films. Hate to sound edgy but holy shit the academy are fucking overemotional children sometimes.
>>
>>64562852
further proof the Academy knows nothing
>>
>>64562377
>they actually had Michelle Obama present the award
I like how unsubtle they are about being as bad as the Clintons with giving celebs political power
>>
>>64561926
It was the worst movie nominated for Best Picture that year. It was boring, with an insufferable main character and a one-tone script ("fuck fuck shit that fucking fuck").
>>
>>64561776
Argo was pretty terrible.
>>
>>64563054
>It was the worst movie nominated for Best Picture that year.


Avatar – James Cameron and Jon Landau
The Blind Side – Gil Netter, Andrew A. Kosove, and Broderick Johnson
District 9 – Peter Jackson and Carolynne Cunningham
An Education – Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey
Inglourious Basterds – Lawrence Bender
Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire – Lee Daniels, Sarah Siegel-Magness, and Gary Magness
A Serious Man – Ethan Coen and Joel Coen
Up – Jonas Rivera
Up in the Air – Daniel Dubiecki, Ivan Reitman, and Jason Reitman
Was it really?


Was it really?
>>
>>64563294
Yes
>>
>>64563294
I don't know what than anon is talking about, fucking The Blind Side was nominated for Best Picture
>>
>>64562484
That's probably the most forgettable academy award for best picture
>>
>>64563424
Worse than District 9, Avatar, Inglorious Basterds, The Blind Side, Up and Precious?

Really?
>>
>>64561977
>Good art should alienate casuals.
Spoken like a true casual
>>
>>64563548
The casuals are destroying the western world. If you give them something that makes them happy then you are complicit in that destruction. If you make something to bore and confuse them then you're fighting the good fight.
>>
>>64563294
>A Serious Man

Go fuck yourself.
>>
Crash was probably the worst I've seen, but the English Patient and Forrest Gump come pretty close.
>>
>>64563661
It's probably top 3 worst Coen Brothers friend
>>
>>64562484
Argo was more forgettable. At least the artist had a gimmick. Argo had nothing
>>
>>64563661
I posted the entire nominations list. I wasn't implying that Hurt Locker was the best movie on there. But it's certainly not the worst thing nominated.
>>
>>64563294
A Serious Man and Inglourious Basterds are better.
>>
>>64563685
Their top 3 worst are The Ladykillers, Intolerable Cruelty and The Hudsucker Proxy, friend.
>>
>>64563524
Well I can certainly agree with The Blind Side and Precious
>>
>>64563685
Top 3 best, plebbo. I bet you like the big lebowski. Top kek.
>>
>>64562933
The main message of the movie seems to be that if you're dumb and clueless through blind luck all your problems will be resolved.

>>64563816
God takes watches out for fools and drunks.

>>64561977
Goodfellas was my favorite movie at 13 so you're wrong
>>
>>64565356
Goodfellas is complete mediocrity that marked the artistic death of Scorcese. Any person who likes Goodfellas is juvenile about cinema. I hope you aren't much older than 13 now if you still think that's a quality film.
>>
>>64565553
it's good art, not incredible or profound

Crash is an easy target. It was a mistake. Birdman is a disaster. Lubezki deserves all the credit for his photography but it's in service of a shitty script and a director who is a fucking moron.

Sure, it's got the edge in photography at least. It's still a piece of shit.

And many of these movies are acceptable or even good.

Going My Way, The Broadway Melody, Cavalcade and The Greatest Show on Earth are all far worse than Crash.

BIRDCRAP is a bad movie that most people hated.

Really??? I'd sit though CRASH before I'd ever watch another frame of BIRDMAN

Hello reddit

The King's Speech was less of an issue with the movie itself then winning over Black Swan or The Social Network.

Even by Academy standards that was some wacky tobacky.

>>64567452

Birdman was fine. It wasn't fantastic, it wasn't terrible, it was just fine.

I knew Whiplash wasn't going to win Best Picture so I was checked out of the proceedings at that point.
>>
>>64567640
Hello
>>
>>64563707
Argo was a good movie. You are wrong.
>>
>>64567667
whiplash was, and I don't say this lightly, an unadulterated piece of shit film that should never have been expanded past the 15 minute short it was meant to be.
>>
>>64567610
Normal people didn't think much about it, they don't care about camerawork and irony and cinema language, they just care about simple things like relatability, interesting characters and emotional impact, and Birdman doesn't provide a lot of these things.


I can't blame them too much cause I myself didnt think much of the film. If the award was for merit and quality Boyhood should have won
>>
>>64562597
fuck you i liked it

“Hipster Patriarchy” might be a better title for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Depicting a white American male from childhood to adolescence, it celebrates the emblematic figure of American social power. Starting with youth’s inherent innocence and appeal, Linklater gives his protagonist, Mason (Ellar Coltrane), centrality in the passing parade of his Texas family (including a sister and divorced parents) and then, ultimately, confers importance upon Mason and his “normalcy.”

Sure enough, the cultural media have responded on cue: Praising the deliberately mundane Boyhood fits the pattern unconsciously followed by most culture writers (who also tend to be white males) seeking to confirm their own privilege and importance — but without examining it. Some women and men of other races also worship this unscrutinized authority, which partly explains why Linklater’s lackluster filmmaking (from Suburbia, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight to School of Rock and the atrocious Bernie) almost always gets overrated.

As much as fanboys falling for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Linklater’s think-alike idolators seem to have forgotten the significant films Boyhood imitates. The widely hyped story of Boyhood’s twelve-year production ignores the similar periodic method English director Michael Apted employed on the documentary series 7 Up (he filmed a group of British schoolkids at seven-year intervals); the hype also ignores how François Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel series (from The 400 Blows, Love at Twenty, and Stolen Kisses to Bed and Board and Love on the Run) encompassed a 20-year span in the fictional youth’s life.

The Omaha Beach scene alone > The Thin Red Line

and I liked The Thin Red Line

It was a good movie.

The word people use to make the quality of their subjective work sound objective.

I've seen better looking Tyler Perry movies.

Based Armond.
>>
>>64563707
It had a sharp and well written script by Chris Terrio. It had a good story and strong performances from its entire cast. Its a good film.
>>
>>64567937
Normal people don't vote in the Oscars. It's voting base includes professional art critics and past nominees.
>>
>>64566580
The script is one of Birdmans' strengths. You probably didnt like it because the ideas it explored went over your head. Cant really blame you for not liking it though since your a fat fuck mediocre human being.

Go back to your Star Wars threads guys. Were discussing actual films here. No one cares about your objectively wrong opinions.

You're either a massive pleb or a /pol/tard who needs to shout his opinion every he goes

Armond is great but he just failed to see the beauty in the romanticized aesthetic of sophisticated rawness in Boyhood.

Tree of Life was better.

Don't be a faggot a theatrical LOTR was anticipated for decades and they knocked it out the park, partly due to perfect casting. I forgot Theoden fuck.

As if the Oscars care about realism. Braveheart (which is great) is one of the most historically inaccurate films ever made and it won Best Picture

The Social Network and Inception were considerably better than the rest of the competition I think, 2010 was not a very good year but these two movies were hyped up and delivered

King Speech was still a deserving winner though, comfy with great performances, extremely likeable oscar bait.
>>
American Beauty
>>
>>64569533
I don't think inception deserved a best picture nom let alone a win. The prestige is nolans only best picture worthy.
The social network was very well done and tightly done but I just felt meh about it. Probably bc I like many other Fincher films. I don't think it deserved best picture but maybe that's because I just really hate Jewbook
>>
>>64569299
This. Schindler's List won after all.

They won Sag ensemble though

The question was what problem do people have with the squirt locker, not the lame ass Oscars.

>>64569954
The thread is about the Oscars you tard
>>
The worst thing about Crash is not even the best movie named Crash. Every time I tell someone I love Crash, they think I'm talking about that piece of shit Oscar bait and not the Cronenberg masterpiece. Fuck Crash.

The English Patient was worse, though.
>>
>>64570111

Paul Haggis' Crash could have used someone fucking someone else's leg wound. Would have livened things up a little at least.
>>
>>64561776

Surprised no one's said Slumdog Millionaire yet.

>>64570353
I'm more pissed that Gran Torino didn't get nominated for anything that year while Milk got a shitload of nominations for being another "Sean Penn goes into Oscar bait for the 1295th time despite being a horrible actor" movie
>>
>>64570058
And the question wasn't, because clearly the Oscar's liked it, you tard.

Jarhead for plebs.

Not that it was worse than clash but Gladiator didn't deserve an Oscar.

I can think of many more Soderbergh films that are more deserving

It just wasn't a strong enough movie to get an Oscar. The characters were all weak except Commodus, and they still squandered his potential. It got lucky.
