The 35 Greatest Movies That Should Have Won an Oscar
To determine the greatest movies that should have won an Oscar, 24/7 Tempo considered numerous metrics, including Rotten Tomatoes average critic and audience ratings, the average user ratings on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), and total Oscar nominations. Editorial discretion (and knowledge of specific films) was also used in order to determine which movies align with trends exhibited by other films that have won Oscars. A movie's likelihood of winning an award can be influenced by its distributor, actors, directors, genres, themes, and box office success. Only movies that did not win any competitive Academy Awards were included.
