It is a dream of every movie director to take home a prize after presenting a good piece of work. To win an Oscar is not an easy task because it requires a movie to have more than 40 minutes, be presented in a qualifying digital format, be open for commercial theatre in Los Angeles between January 1st and 31st December. The film should also run for seven days as well as advertised in Los Angeles. In addition, credit forms and title forms must be submitted to the Academy before the 1st of December. The following movies received Oscar awards, but there were better rivals to receive the accolades instead.
The movie “Crash” won an Oscar award in 2004 when it was lined up against “Brokeback Mountain.” A “crash” is a story that tries to solve the mystery of racism on people of different walks of life as well in different situations. The characters in that movies are giving their best to bring out a message blatantly. The only shortcoming of the movie “crash” is that their characters are -dimensional throughout, this should have paved the way to the award, “Brokenback Mountain,” which was well-plotted and acted.
A Beautiful Mind is a boring movie since it is a story of a mathematician who had paranoid schizophrenia. Mathematics is not friendly to all, and being part of the movie worsens things. The idea of a disease is not talked about all through, and it’s brought towards the end, which was prolonged to create a story. That movie has more than one ending, consequently, there is unnecessary prolonging that makes this movie rank in the list of the worst movies. A Beautiful Mind did not deserve even a nomination to an Oscar award.
There is nothing bad about the “Kramer vs. Kramer” movie, but the issue is it’s a basic movie. Kramer vs. Kramer talks about a family where a dad divorces his wife, and the dad has to fight to get his son. This movie did not deserve to win an Oscar because it was lined up against “Apocalypse.” Apocalypse is a movie that involved great creativity, and it was one of the best movies that filmed the Vietnam War. “Kramer vs. Kramer” only deserved a win if competing with other movies but not “Apocalypse.” The movie is backed up with positivity and many emotions as well, but still, it can never rank on top of Apocalypse.
