Blog Directory CineVerse: Most overrated Oscar winners

Most overrated Oscar winners

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Now that the Academy Awards are over, what do you feel about the winners? Did the best picture Oscar go to the most deserving nominated film out of the field of 10?

That begs the question: What is the most overrated or undeserving film to win the best picture Oscar? For our March CineVerse poll, we've narrowed it down to 20 best picture-winning films that have inspired great debate since the Academy Awards were instituted in the last 1920s, including Gladiator, Oliver!, How Green Was My Valley, and Crash.

(For a bit of historical perspective on possibly more deserving films that got snubbed, you're strongly encouraged to read Michael Phillips' interesting article published in the Chicago Tribune last month, found here.

The poll can be found on the left sidebar of our home page--vote today and let us know your opinion.

By the way, the surprising winner of January's poll, which asked the question, "who is your all-time favorite movie villain," was preacher Harry Powell (played by Robert Mitchum) in Night of the Hunter, with 18% of the vote.
