Oscars Retrospective: Best Picture Losers That Should Have Won Academy Awards

jaws poster Oscars loser

If your favorite movie of 2014 leaves Oscar Sunday a loser, have no fear. History suggests that the Academy Award losers have just as good a chance to become all-time classics as the winners. Granted, sometimes, the Academy gives the little golden statue to the right film. No one is going to argue The Godfather (1972), Casablanca (1942), or Schindler’s List (1993). But seriously, in 20 years is ANYONE gonna remember the overrated message movie of Crash (2005) or even the more recent 21st century silent film, The Artist? I sincerely doubt it. In fact, on 2007’s American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest Films (10-year edition), 14 out the top 20 were NOT Best Picture winners, some not even nominated.

So here’s a brief list of some of the greatest Academy Award Best Picture losers of all time.

Toy Story

The Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger has officially announced that Pixar is making Toy Story 4, and that original Toy Story director John Lasseter will be returning to helm the fourth installment himself.

Disney has also locked in the June 16, 2017 calendar spot for a release date. The story will see Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the toys beginning a new chapter. The idea for the story was developed by some of the Pixar Brain Trust, including two-time Oscar-winner Lasseter (Toy Story, Tin Toy), two-time Oscar winner Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E), Oscar winner Pete Docter (Up), and Toy Story 2 co-director and Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich.

Disney In Depth: Can Pixar Regain Its Glory?

Disney In Depth banner

For 15 years, one computer-animation studio dominated Hollywood with 11 major hit films, earning awards a plenty and worldwide critical acclaim for its output. Then came Cars 2. And Brave. Lest we forget Monsters University (which I actually found entertaining) and an entire year (2014) with no feature films. Pixar was a powerhouse, but now its corporate owner (Disney) has an unbeatable animation studio of its own. The question we all continue to wonder is if Pixar can reclaim its title as an unstoppable force.

Disney In Depth previews the recent past and future of Pixar, hoping to determine if John Lasseter‘s computer-animation studio can finally be able to dismiss naysayers, once and for all, that its hit streak was a one-time experience.

Disney In Depth: Top 10 Funniest Pixar Characters

Disney In Depth banner

Welcome to another edition of Disney In Depth! This week, in honor of Disney-Pixar’s most recent feature, Brave, I will be focusing on some of the best elements of Pixar’s films: funny characters. They evoke a laugh or two during perilous scenes, and manage to make us smirk when a situation seems far from humorous. These are the funniest of the bunch, offering a witty quip or inspiring a gag. This animation studio is known for developing deep characters, in both their personalities and designs. Thanks to Pixar’s brilliant team of writers and the talented voice artists who made these images into fully-fleshed individuals, we have a bunch of characters to root for and giggle along with. Here are the ones I find as most hilarious.

Toy Story 3 3D Blu-rayToy Story 3
3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack
Directed by Lee Unkrich
Starring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Ned Beatty, Micheal Keaton, Jodi Benson
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 1, 2011

It’s not always easy being a collector. If you are one of the many out there who, like me, find something they are passionate about and pursue it to the fullest, a lot of time, effort, and money can be spent doing something that others find trivial. For those of us bitten by this bug, it’s not about simply possessing a thing. Anyone can possess a thing, but when you collect something, its more about what that item means to you as a whole. On the surface, I buy the Blu-Rays and DVDs I buy because I am a fan of the film first, and want to enjoy it again in my home.
