The 10 Biggest Best Picture Snubs

8) 1989 – Driving Miss Daisy over Dead Poets Society

1989 oscar

Driving Miss Daisy was an odd choice for Best Picture especially when you consider that director Bruce Beresford wasn’t even nominated for Best Director. It was a good movie but not especially outstanding and Dead Poets Society is a movie that still sees people quote ‘Carpe Diem’ as a result of it.


7) 1980  – Ordinary People over Raging Bull

1980 oscar

Once again Martin Scorsese was left to feel the snub of the Academy as Ordinary People prevailed against the biopic of Jake La Motta. Ordinary People is a good movie but not a great one and time has been better to Raging Bull than it has to it.
