Default Biggest robberies in Oscar history

What do you say? It will always be Kramer vs Kramer somehow beating Apocalypse Now for me. Apocalypse Now has an argument for the GOAT cinematic masterpiece, particularly given how well its cinematography holds up over time considering when it was shot.

Taxi Driver losing to Rocky is also pretty damn bad

Saving Private Ryan is an extremely overrated movie outside of the first 30 minutes. However you are right, Shakespeare in Love shouldn't have won. The Thin Red Line should have won.

Blood Diamonds was amazing but I don't think DiCaprio did enough for an Oscar. His accent though was spot on.

To me, this is the perfect movie. Nick Nolte and Jim Caviezel were magnificent.

It was beautifully made. Some very iconic scenes.

This movie won best picture:



The same year 2001 won Best Special Effects.

Academy people clueless as always. Oscars hold no significance whatsoever.
