The Oscars that should have been..

Dedicated to the movies that YOU felt Oscar has snubbed in the past. The ones where it went to the "other guy" and not to the one you thought most deserving.

For me..One has to be "The Shawshank Redemption" losing it to "Forrest Gump". Both great, but the impact of Redemption was so unexpected for me.

Now the ones you thought should have gotten the gold....

I was really rooting for Silence of the Lambs to win best picture, but as the years go by, I now think it's insane that JFK didn't win.

Similarly, although I was initially pleased that Halle Berry won best actress for Monster's Ball,after reviewing the video tape, I think the award should have been presented to me for my animalistic sex scene with Billy Bob Thorten.

Titanic over LA Confidential still is a major thorn in the side for me besides some of the others mentioned.
