    Which film with a 1968 US release do you think should have been nominated for Best Picture?

    The nominees that year were:
    Funny Girl
    The Lion in Winter
    Oliver!
     (winner)
    Rachel, Rachel
    Romeo and Juliet

    Quite a few missed opportunities with this race.

    Oliver! is a good film musical and honestly I don’t think it is a bad winner but compared to another film being in this category it is hard to completely support it.

    Rachel, Rachel needs a rewatch but I remember thinking it was good but other films were better.

    I actually really liked this Romeo & Juliet.

    Funny Girl isn’t the best musical and is extremely flawed and a lot of the transferred over to the movie.

    The Lion in Winter is the best film of the nominees and easily gets my vote.

    However, you then have the snubbed films:
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    The Producers
    Rosemary’s Baby

    Those 3 films represent the best of 1968 for me and their snubs are a disgrace. I would give the last to slots to The Lion in Winter and then the last one to probably Romeo & Juliet.

    While I would argue The Producers and even Rosemary’s Baby are more rewatchable, 2001 was such a masterful and groundbreaking effort that I can’t help but vote for it.
