So you didn't love La La Land despite its 14 Oscar nominations? Sometimes The Academy just doesn't get it right, and we've got a whole list of times they didn't. Now, don't get us wrong—we're not saying that these films are downright terrible. In fact, some of them are pretty darn good (although some most definitely aren't). Sometimes it simply came down to the fact that there was a much more deserving film nominated for the same category. Whatever the reason, these movies made out with an award that should have gone to someone else. Here are 25 movies that shouldn't have won an Oscar!
1 of 25 "How Green Was My Valley:" Best Picture (1941)
Directed by John Ford and starring Maureen O'Hara and Walter Pidgeon, How Green Was My Valley details the moving story of the lives of a Welsh coal mining family. It was nominated for 10 Academy Awards in 1941, one of which was Best Picture against Orson Welles's Citizen Kane, Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion, and the film noir masterpiece: The Maltese Falcon. Most film buffs agree Citizen Kane is the rightful winner of the Oscar for Best Picture that year. However, it received a 90% on rotten tomatoes and was added to the American Film Registry in 1990.
