Please could you add zootropolis as well as zootopia because in many countries they changed the name to zootropolis

i would second this one, since, being italian, i know the majority of these movies firstly by their translated title in Italian (zootropolis also here) BUT IMO it would be an error because quizmaster always uses the us name of the movie and making an exception just for zootopia is unjustified. (while on the other hand, tracking down all the movie names' translations in the various languages is plainly impractical for the purposes of this website)

It's Zootropolis in the UK; it's like Captain America becoming Captain America: The First Avenger. Rebranding, not a translation.

You clearly have not seen or heard of The Room starring Tommy Wiseau. It is considered to be one of the worst movies ever made.

Many bad films have won or been nominated for awards before for various reasons including, among other things, politics among the judging committee or in a broader sense, current social atmosphere, sympathy, celebrity, bigotry, media influence, assorted kinds of stupidity, and poor taste. But mostly politics.

roadrage, the Academy has thousands of members, most of which belong to the American film industry. They don't have time to see many of the nominees, and the movies they do see have already attracted some hype in town. Some members even vote for movies which they haven't seen, just because they know the makers or follow their colleagues' opinions. The Oscars are a popularity contest.

I can think of plenty of movies that should have been nominated for Best Picture that weren't. On the inverse, some of the nominees I've seen didn't deserve to be nominated, and in some cases, didn't deserve to win.

I agree somewhat with what's been said about the Oscars, however my husband and I try to see all the Best Picture nominees each year. We've had to sit through a lot of turkeys, but occasionally we find a gem we would never have watched otherwise - Midnight in Paris was one of those. It is the only Woody Allen film I've ever seen that made sense to me. We gauge a film's worth by how much conversation it generates on the drive home. The Reader and Brokeback Mountain caused our longest conversations - we were still discussing those for days afterwards. Ang Lee is a genius. He became my favorite director after seeing Sense and Sensibility.

ander, have you seen The Purple Rose of Cairo? It is my favorite Woody Allen film and more relatable than most of what he has done. I also like your way of measuring the worth of a movie. As for the Oscars, many of the nominees are good movies, but an Oscar doesn't guarantee quality. However, they surprised me this year; not only because their choice was a foreign-language, non-"Caucasian" movie, but even more because it was so unsentimental and sharply analytical. My inner cynic concludes that they tried to be politically correct and, like the blind chicken, also picked the right corn.

I was going to add my thoughts on Allen, decided to look up a list of his films to refresh my memory, and realized I'd seen almost none of them.

ander: Black Panther is a good example of a film that got nominated for Best Picture and absolutely did not deserve it. It's easily in the bottom 5 of all films in the "Marvel Cinematic Universe." If you were going to watch any of those I'd start with Iron Man, instead. If the Academy were nominating super hero films for best picture that actually deserved the nominations then Infinity War or Endgame would have gotten a nod. Together they represent an unprecedented feat in cinema, though appreciating them fully is impossible without having seen the decade of films that preceded them. I know you're going to say that you're a grandmother and so can't enjoy these movies, but my mom is a grandmother many times over and she loves them. Her favorite I think is Guardians of the Galaxy.

For a Rian Johnson film it was flat out brilliant. For any other director... it was alright. Johnson is a hack.

I often am.... but... sometimes the majority is correct, you know. Johnson has made 3 big mainstream films. One was sort of okay but very very stupid and very lazily written (he also wrote it), one was decent, and one was so god-awful it simultaneously made the George Lucas prequels look like Citizen Kane and single-handedly destroyed the most lucrative franchise in Hollywood history. All three were overrated. The guy sucks.
