The 2017 entry is incorrect the best picture winner was actually Emma Stone.

Greenhorg, I can tell that your points are good because your source is IMDb, and we know IMDb to have the definitive ratings of all-time. /sarcasm

Get over it, jackass.

I am actually glad they included Sunrise. Technically speaking it is not a Best Picture winner but you can argue that at the first awards Sunrise & Wings somewhat shared Best Picture since they won different best picture categories: Best production VS Unique & Artistic production.

I don't think the award Sunrise won was deemed inferior it just didn't exist after the first ceremony. It's also not like Sunrise & Wings were nominated in the same category and Sunrise was giving this inferior award. The two awards had completely different films nominated and Sunrise & Wings each won in their respected category.

@greenhorg

while i dont doubt most of the films you pick out that missed out on oscars are great masterpieces you can't just dismiss ones like ordinary people that took the award in 1980. your two sources are academy award winners and imdb scores. both of those only really show the popularity of a film. it is down to our own personal response to a film and not on what arbitrary awards other people decide to give it, and especially the academy

Wings was the first film, and the only silent film ever, to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
From the Academy Awards Database:
1927/28 (1st)
OUTSTANDING PICTURE
Paramount Famous Lasky -- Wings

Technically it did win. There were TWO Best Picture categories in the first year. It's just that for record's sake, they usually only count the Best Picture category Wings was in.

Can't we just pretend Sunrise won? It's so much better anyways.

@greenhorg Although I agree with your thoughts on Academy bias, I must correct you. Double Indemnity was, in fact, nominated for Best Picture, as well as six other awards (though it didn't win any).

@greenhorg
While I appreciate your post you do realise that many films go unappreciated at their time of release, both critically and commercially, and only decades later gain the regard which they deserved at the time.

@merlynwise: "Actually,"

Sunrise was the same year as Wings, 1927-1928, and received a different award. Some people consider Wings and Sunrise co-winners but Wings won the award that eventually became "Best Picture."

They should make a Razzie's worst picture winner list.
