Top Of The Oscar Flops
Mel Gibson's Braveheart has topped a list of history's worst Oscar winners.
The movie has been named and shamed alongside titles such as A Beautiful Mind, Rocky and Around The World In 80 Days.
The list of worst films was published by movie magazine Empire, just days before the 77th Academy Awards.
Braveheart, winner of the Best Picture Oscar in 1996, was a "typical piece of Pom-bashing," the magazine said.
"It's Mel Gibson's all-time worst Best Picture.
"Randall Wallace (the writer) might have merited praise for making 14th-century history relevant to audiences who thought King Edward was a potato or a cigar, but his dialogue has all the thudding subtlety of a parody," it said.
A Beautiful Mind, featuring Russell Crowe as the mathematician John Nash, came second for its "galling" win in 2002.
The film's "wilfully dishonest screenplay" and "clunkily intricate direction" added insult to injury, the magazine said.
The "tawdry circus spectacle" of 1952 movie The Greatest Show On Earth ranked third.
The "revisionist nonsense" of 1995 winner Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks as the man who has accidental meetings with important events in the US, was fifth.
Sylvester Stallone's Rocky, which won in 1977, was ninth with critics stating: "It was hardly surprising that the Academy should hail a picture restoring the American dream."
Empire magazine writer Patrick Peters said: "Critical worth is almost irrelevant where bestowing the Best Picture award is concerned.
"Scope and scale, the civic validity of the storyline, the plushness of the production values and the tissue count during those crucial heart-warming moments are what matter.
"The Oscars aren't about quality. They're peer group nods of approval and, as a result, there has been a surfeit of unworthy Best Pictures and, rest assured, there will be many more to come."
Here is the top ten:
1. Braveheart (1995)
2. A Beautiful Mind (2001)
3. The Greatest Show On Earth (1952)
4. Ordinary People (1980)
5. Forrest Gump (1994)
6. Terms Of Endearment (1983)
7. Around the World In 80 Days (1956)
8. Cavalcade (1933)
9. Rocky (1976)
10. How Green Was My Valley (1941)
Hard to believe that Forest Gump beat Pulp Fiction to the Best Film in 1994!
