So Oscars season has come and gone. Well, the awards part has anyway. The discourse element—thanks to a certain individual’s instantly and infinitely memed quick draw arm—will apparently keep on echoing down through the mists of time until we are all reduced to dust. I haven’t got anything to say on the latter. Nor do I have much to say on the former—though I do have is other people’s words on the matter. In the wake of the latest shitshow of decisions by the Academy, it’s always fun to ruminate on what might have—or indeed should have—been, were that institution not the braindead and redundant zombie shambler that it is. We’ve already covered our alternative nominations for this year’s Oscars here. We’ve also thought about how the Academy neglects comedies. Now it’s the turn of great films that they have ignored completely in the past, as Twitter users respond to video essayist Brian Rowe’s prompt about movies that should have won Best Picture, despite not being nominated for anything at all.

Naturally, masterpieces like Heat and Zodiac come to mind immediately, and are of course represented in the responses to Rowe’s tweet. Let’s dive into a few others though. I’m not necessarily agreeing with all of these—although I am with a decent number of them—but it is always interesting to be reminded of the kind of glaring omissions that the mugs at the Academy regularly make.
