Oscar Blogging - The Worst Best Picture Winners

I bet a lot of voters would like to take these back:
  • 1990 - Dances with Wolves beats out Goodfellas; it is the last Kevin Costner movie to be seen by anyone outside of his immediate family.
  • 1980 - the quite ordinary Ordinary People is chosen over Raging Bull, considered by some to be the best movie of the '70s.
  • 1979 - Kramer vs. Kramer beats out the haunting Apocalypse Now and immediately slips into obscurity.
  • 1976 - Scorsese begins his long history of getting the shaft as Rocky (!!!) wins over Taxi Driver.
  • 1941 - Up for the honor: Citizen Kane, Suspicion, and the Maltese Falcon; and the winner is - How Green is My Valley. Just sad, that one...
