No offense to the winners of the following Oscars. But, honestly, the Academy sometimes just gets it all sorts of wrong.
Now that this year's Oscar nominations are out and we await the results of the March 2 broadcast, we look back and shake our head at some of their past decisions.
See, the term "Oscar winner" is something that no one can ever take away from anyone who has won.
We at Movie Fanatic, if we had our way, would do just that for these 11 winning moments in Oscar history that were all sorts of wrong.
Just watch Goodfellas online and tell us that it deserved to lose to Dances with Wolves!
Click through and check out the 11 biggest mistakes that Oscar has ever made.
1. Dances With Wolves Beats Goodfellas
In what universe is Dances with Wolves a better movie than Goodfellas? Time has not made the pain of this error any easier.
2. Al Pacino Beats Denzel Washington
Al Pacino got his Oscar for Scent of a Woman for a lifetime of work. Who should have won? Denzel Washington and his fiery performance as Malcolm X!
3. Crash Beats Brokeback Mountain
Perhaps Brokeback Mountain was ahead of its time. But, that still doesn't excuse the upset of Crash defeating the timeless romance for Best Picture. Shame on you, Academy!
4. How Green Was My Valley Bests Citizen Kane
Citizen Kane has routinely been named the best film of all time. So... how did it not win Best Picture?
5. Mira Sorvino Beats Kate Winslet
Sure, Woody Allen writes great roles for women. But in no way did Mira Sorvino deserve to win over Kate Winslet in Sense and Sensibility. No way!
6. Rocky Beats... Everyone!
We LOVE Rocky! But, it was a Best Picture winner over Taxi Driver, Network & All the President's Men? Really?? No, really?!
7. Stevie Wonder Wins for I Just Called to Say I Love You
Stevie's fabulous, but check out who he beat that year to win Best Song: Purple Rain, Footloose, Against All Odds and Ghostbusters. Who you gonna call? I guess Stevie Wonder!
8. Adrien Brody Beats Daniel Day Lewis
Adrien Brody did great work in The Pianist. But, compared to the hurricane that was Daniel Day Lewis in The Gangs of New York... please, not even close.
9. Gwyneth Bests Cate
Yes, Gwyneth was fabulous in Shakespeare in Love. But her victory had more to do with that film's Best Picture win than anything. Surely she was not as powerful as Cate Blanchett was in Elizabeth. Never. In. A. Million. Years.
10. Ordinary People Beats Raging Bull
The lack of justice for Martin Scorsese is long documented at the Oscars. But how was Ordinary People deemed a better picture than Raging Bull?
