Best Picture Upset Poll

A few months ago, at a webzine, a poll was conducted asking people to vote for what they think was the biggest Best Picture upset in history. Here were the choices they offered along with my commentary:

1. How Green Was My Valley wins the Oscar over Citizen Kane, 1942.

2. Rocky wins over Taxi Driver, 1976

3. Annie Hall wins over Star Wars, 1977

4. Dances with Wolves wins over Goodfellas, 1990

5. Shakespeare in Love wins over Saving Private Ryan, 1998.

6. A Beautiful Mind wins over The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, 2001

7. Crash wins over Brokeback Mountain, 2005


  1. Dances With Wolves and A Beautiful Mind's wins weren't really surprises, but most people don't like them. I think Crash is the biggest surprise out of these followed by Shakespeare In Love.

  2. How anybody could love How Green Was My Valley is beyond me!

    And can we just forget 2005 never happened haha

    Nice vids, cute cat:)
