The worst of Oscar best

Edward Copeland is running a fun poll at his film blog: What are the ten worst Best Picture winners of all time?

Go through the list of winners and pick your 10 least favourite. Or, to put it another way, the 10 you dislike the most -- in order, with 1 the worst and 10 the 10th worst. E-mail your list to Edward (his e-mail is in the post). Make sure you list 10, no less. And make sure you only list films you've actually seen. The poll closes in a few days. Edward will tally and post the results.

I've seen all of the winners except Crash.

My list (in reverse order): Ordinary People, Million Dollar Baby, Rebecca, Chicago, The Deer Hunter, Forrest Gump, Gigi, West Side Story, Titanic, and Braveheart.

Yes, Braveheart is the worst Best Picture winner of all time. Period. (With the exception of Rebecca, note that my list includes only musicals and winners since 1978).

While we're at it, here's my list of the best (without really thinking about it), from 10 to 1: Dances With Wolves, It Happened One Night, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Godfather Part II, All About Eve, Schindler's List, Chariots of Fire, The Godfather, Patton, Annie Hall.

That's right: Annie Hall. The best of the best.
