This will forever stay in my mind.... The 1979 Oscar Nominees for Best Picture: Kramer vs. Kramer Apocalypse Now All That Jazz Norma Rae Breaking Away The winner that year was Kramer vs. Kramer Now, at least in my opinion, you look at the caliber of those nominated films, particularly Apocalypse Now and All That Jazz and you wonder what went wrong. I have always felt Kramer vs. Kramer walked away with the Oscar because of its popularity. It was a safe film. However, Best Picture? Hardly. Another upset that had people griping at the time was in 2005 when CRASH won Best Picture over what was perceived as much better films like Capote, Munich and Brokeback Mountain. So, I ask this question. What did you personally find to be the biggest Oscar upset for Best Picture in any given year? I am certain most of us will relate to awards we personally watched in our lifetime, however feel free to reach back into Oscar history to relay your own personal upsets.
