|List of Movies That Deserved a Best Picture Oscar|
Saving Private Ryan (lost to Shakespeare in Love) - Spielberg takes on The Bard...and loses.
Pulp Fiction (lost to Forrest Gump) - Gump's first victim.
Shawshank Redemption (lost to Forrest Gump) - Gump's second victim. Best picture in any other year.
Goodfellas (lost to Dances With Wolves) - One of the best Mob movies ever made takes on Costner's best. DeNiro gets clipped.
Raging Bull (lost to Ordinary People) - DeNiro loses another one.
Apocaplypse Now (lost to Kramer Vs. Kramer) - The horror! One of the most beautifully horrible films. Brando's short performance alone is enough to see this one.

Dog Day Afternoon (lost to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) - Tough battle here, but Dog Day remains strong over time.
Chinatown (lost to Godfather 2) - Should a sequel win an Oscar?
