    Pretty much every other nominee. However, of those two, Taxi Driver.

    Honestly, I would probably vote for NETWORK but TAXI DRIVER was also a masterpiece and would have made for a very worthy winner. Rocky is nothing special to me at all….nothing about it even seemed to be “the best” in terms of award worthiness.

    I came here to correct the OP and say Network…… But apparently someone(s) beat me to it. 🙂

    Is this a joke question? Lol.

    Well, Sylvester is and was, one of ‘their own’. He spent, almost no money because he didnt have any, to make a feel-good film which showcased a terrific cast. It has, a predictable, unchallenging screenplay as well. Imo every single film nominated with Rocky were more complex and more intellectually challenging. But it was Rocky love. Even the song, “Eye of the Tiger”, that boppy ‘rock’ tune, got a nomination. Avildsen’s name is listed as “Director”, but this was Stallone’s baby all the way. I’m happy for him actually, given all the crap he’s taken since then, with his abs and his plastic surgery  and his being so stuck in ‘action’ films.

    Btw, I watched the Expendable films. And I’ll watch the third one too. Hahaha!

    Also, to me, I prefer Stallone over Affleck, two directors who remind me of each other.

    I would have voted for Network.

    Of the two movies mentioned, then I would go with Taxi Driver.
