    I don’t know about least deserving but Cuba Gooding Jr having an Oscar is akin to Djimi Traore having a Champions League medal

    …And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to How Green Was My Valley, considering that it was up against Citizen Kane which is consistently in the running for best picture of all time.

    Dances with wolves, which bet Goodfellas to the Oscar.
    Or maybe Ordinary people which bet Raging Bull…

    …And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to Glen Hansard, considering that he’s a hippie homeless apologist and squatter activist

    CRASH for best picture in 2005. The only reason it won was because they all thought not voting for it meant they were racist.

    Also, Titanic is a great film (it is), but L.A. Confidential not winning that year was a crime.

      Crash was awful shio1te.

      Wasn’t a huge fan of Brokeback Mountain but it was definitely the better picture.

    …And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to…
    Bob Fosse for Cabaret, when obviously Francis Ford Coppola should have got it for The Godfather. This was the Best Director award in 1973.

    “…And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to Forrest Gump’s ‘Best Picture’ win…. beating both Pulp Fiction AND Shawshank Redemption…. a travesty, in fairness…. but life’s like that, life’s like a box of chocolates.

    ( You may shoot me now, for that last bit )

    …And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to Shakespeare in Love for beating Saving Private Ryan to Best Picture. I’ll take Vin Diesel’s horrible delivery over Judi Dench’s ruffs every time.

  9. Joe Cool

    I’d have to go with Tom hanks as Forrest Gump. Just a beautiful, funny and sad story told beautifully. Every time I watch it it never fails to make me laugh , it never fails to make me cry. Simple and beautiful

  10. Joe Cool

    The least deserving Oscar has to be Gwyneth patrol dor Shakespeare in love. She absolutely stole it from Cate Blancett who was stunning as Elizabeth

    “And the award for least deserving academy award ever goes to Chicago for Best Picture”. Not a fan of musicals at the best of times but Chicago was pure average. Beat the Pianist, Gangs of NY & Lord of the Rings II to the statuette.

  12. HyperGlobalCompuMegaNet

    And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to…
    Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart in 2010, which should have gone to Colin Firth for A Single Man.
    Ironically Firth won it the following year for The King’s Speech, when Bridges would have been a better choice for his exploits in True Grit. Go figure!

    And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to My Fair Lady which robbed Dr. Strangelove (How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) for the best picture Oscar in 1965. The former was directed by George Cukor and was the tale of “Eliza Doolittle”, played by Audrey Hepburn, an over long yarn (almost 3 hours) about a cockney flower seller who was taught to talk proper like in a rags to riches borefest. Dr Strangelove, directed by Stanley Kubrick, was a satirical look at nuclear conflict between the US and Russia during the cold war era. It is a film that is very funny despite the seriousness of the subject matter, it lives long in the memory and is a classic that should be watched by all.

    Professor Henry Higgins: By George, she’s got it! By George she’s got it! Now once again, where does it rain?
    Eliza Doolittle: [sings] On the plain, on the plain.
    Professor Henry Higgins: And where’s that soggy plain?
    Eliza Doolittle: [sings] In Spain, in Spain!

    President Merkin Muffley: You mean people could actually stay down there for a hundred years?
    Dr. Strangelove: It would not be difficult, Mein Führer. Nuclear reactors could – heh, I’m sorry, Mr. President – nuclear reactors could provide power almost indefinitely.

        Bertie, she was a great woman, great in Charade and Unforgiven amongst others and gave a little back in her charitable work later on in life.
