    Here's the list of Best Picture winners and one of the nominations that should have won it. The first movie is the picture that won, the second is the film that should have won. I'll start from the 70s.

    The Sting/American Graffiti

    Godfather 2/Chinatown

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest/Jaws

    Annie Hall/Star Wars

    Kramer VS Kramer/Apocalypse Now (although Kramer vs Kramer was an extremely powerful film).

    Chariot's of Fire/Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Gandhi/ET

    Titanic/Good Will Hunting

    Shakespeare In Love/Saving Private Ryan

    American Beauty/The Green Mile

    A Beautiful Mind/Lord of the Rings

    Jaws is classic. It was nominated for BP and should have won. It has everything you could ask for in a movie...action, drama, horror and phenominal acting.

    The name slips me at the moment but the guy that played the skipper was easily one of the 50 best characters in cinematic history. His name was Shaw or something.

    Oh, and you have got to rent/buy Good Will Hunting immediately. Fantastic movie.

    Godfather Part II is superior to Chinatown.

    The Green Mile/American Beauty one is very difficult. No matter what, Kevin Spacey deserved the oscar for Best Actor.

    Good Will Hunting should of won over Titanic.

    For actors though, Al Pacino has been perhaps the most robbed.

    He should of won for Godfather Part I, II, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface.

    Maybe for ...And Justice for all, and Any Given Sunday.

    His speech in Any Given Sunday was one of the best for any sport movie ever.

    No way, kid. Chinatown is one of the greatest movies of all-time. THe original Godfather was probably better than Chinatown but not the sequal.
