  • What was the worst movie ever to win best picture?

    MSN says Driving Miss Daisy. I say The English Patient. I couldn't even get through half of this piece of shit. It is the single most unwatchable film I have ever seen. Out of this years movies, The Last Samurai should have been nominated instead of Seabiscuit, IMHO. Any thoughts?

      One year I watched a movie called Chariots of Fire - I thought it was totally boring but I remember saying at the time it would probably win best picture.

      Of course it did - and it is still totally boring.

      At least the English Patient had some sex in it.

        I thought all were painful to sit through.

          I think Seabiscuit's nomination was well deserved. Excellent film, and great performances by Bridges, Cooper, and MacGuire.

          Worst ever film to win is a four way tie between Marty, Gigi!, Oliver!, and My Fair Lady. Can you tell I hate musicals?

                  Out of Africa was good for sex afterwards.

                  By far the worst was:

                      Why can't flicks like Good Morning Vietnam, Airplane, Naked Gun, Major League, Beverly Hills Cop I, Caddyshack, and Back to School win some of that Oscar shit? I mean afterall, those movies were much more enjoyable than 90% of that stuff nosed shit that won.

                              What is needed is a 10 year after the movie came out Oscar's award. Sort of like the old timers committee in baseball.

                              Who's interested in helping.
