Movies That Were Robbed of Oscars

by Jon

Slashfilm has a fantastic article up listing several movies that should have won Oscars, but were robbed by films that clearly didn’t deserve them. I especially like when they get into the 1994 Academy Awards.

1994 was a fantastic year for movies. Forrest Gump could have won on any other year, and I would have been happy. But how the hell did it beat Pulp Fiction, Quiz Show and The Shawshank Redemption?

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m not the only one who thought Pulp Fiction deserved a best film nod. It’s arguably Tarantino’s best work, and has some of the best performances from actors you wouldn’t usually expect strong performances from. As for Shawshank Redemption, probably the best film that year, was more or less completely ignored. Forrest Gump  was good, but not better than Shawshank Redemption. Check the rest of the article out at Slash Film then let me know what you think. What movies deserved Oscars but were robbed?
