10 Films that should have won the best picture award at the Oscars
The Best Picture of the Year category at the Oscars is one of the most prestigious merits that a film could receive. Then again, winning any category as far as the Academy Awards are concerned is a great achievement for a film. Why this award is the best of the lot? It’s because it covers it all- direction, acting, music, script, editing and every other component involved in the making of a movie. So, a movie can reach this milestone only if it excels in all the said fronts, thus making it the ultimate goal of every person involved in the film industry.
Though the panel of judges who selects a movie and bestows it with this award is extremely talented and qualified, opinions and tastes vary depending on individuals. This is exactly the reason why every time the Oscars are announced, many are disappointed, dumbfounded and at certain instances, even heartbroken!
Let’s take a look at a list of movies that were expected to win the Best Picture award at the Oscars, but were shockingly overlooked.
1 Psycho (1960)
Hitchcock’s Psycho created waves in the industry when it hit the silver screen and to date it remains one of the most shocking films of all times, though it might seem a bit comical if watched now. As horror films are seldom nominated for the Best Picture category, Psycho too failed to make the cut at the Oscars.
