Oscar: Worst Nominees for Best Picture, A-Z

Oscar: Worst Nominees for Best Picture (in alphabetical order):

Full Frontal: My choice of poor films is strictly based on my subjective aesthetic taste.

Artistically speaking, at least 10 percent of the Best Picture nominees have been bad or below mediocre features, that is, feature whose overall ranking is below B- (**).

My list excludes the 10 worst films that have actually won Best Picture Oscar. (See earlier article).
