⭐️ BONAFIDE BOSS, while 1983 movie is a classic in its own right and is infinitely more known to modern audience, 1932 movie is still moderately famous and very much noted for influence it had on gangster cinema over decades, inspiring at times shot-for-shot homages in Once Upon a Time in Amercia (1984), among other things.

It was retitled Scarface: Shame of a Nation because the censors thought that the movie was glorifying the violence.

Sorry, IMDB should be IMDb.
Members is a superfluous word, so please remove it. 
And also remove the period after Oscar.

Choose whichever you like :)

* Fight Club (1999)
* The Matrix (1999)
* Pearl Harbor (2001)
* Watchmen (2009)
* The Dark Knight (2010)

riverotter,

I'm assuming you mean the Oscar for Best Picture. In that case, my first choice would be for
Rear Window (1954). However, Rear Window was nominated for the BAFTA best picture.

If you are not limiting the Best Picture nomination to Oscars, then my next choice would be
Forbidden Planet (1956).

If you intend this to be restricted to Oscar best picture, you may wish to mention this in your poll suggestion.

riverotter,

Thank you for adding Rear Window and thank you for updating the title of your list to clarify that this is strictly for Oscar Best Pictures.

I updated the title of this thread accordingly. I also updated the question in your original post to reflect the question in your list.

riverotter,

Please change my selection to Fantasia (1940). I just realized that you are focusing on Oscar best pictures and Fantasia did not receive a Oscar best picture nomination.

Otter, I love your choice! Brazil was one of the first great movies I saw when I was growing up. I still love it. 

'Suggested edit: (in bold below - added an apostrophe after the "s" in "users")

Here are the IMDB Users' favorite movie that was not even nominated for best picture but probably should have been.
