I’m sure we’ve all got our favorites or opinions on movies that never won an Oscar, whether because the Oscar committee just didn’t “get it” or because there just happened to be an incredible competition that year. There are some surprising blockbusters in my own list of amazing movies that never won an Oscar that I think deserved to.
1. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Tim Burton’s 1990 dark masterpiece starring Johnny Depp is the first in my list of movies that never won an Oscar. It was nominated for, as you would expect, Best Makeup at that year’s ceremony, but left empty handed. The film has done nothing but grow in popularity since its release, gaining somewhat of a cult following. Something I really love about Edward Scissorhands is the haunting score, something that was really overlooked by the Academy.
