    I like a lot of those films, but I don’t know about “Best Picture.” Maybe SWEENEY TODD, because the music is so utterly fantastic. OK, SWEENEY TODD it is!

    Tim Burton’s movies have never screamed “Best Picture” to me, but he has made some incredible films. 

    I’l go with…
    -Ed Wood
    -Edward Scissorhands
    -Batman
    -Sweeney Todd

    I voted ED WOOD, but the best Tim Burton movie ever is PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE hands down.  EDWARD SCISSORHANDS is an easy third after Pee-Wee & Ed Wood.  Also a big fan of SLEEPY HOLLOW.

    I liked SWEENEY TODD, but leaving out the prologue tune “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd” and Helena Bonham-Carter (who I usually love, but did not here) ‘s performance kept me from loving it!

    I narrowed it down to Ed Wood, and Big Fish, but then I thought of that smoke coming out of Sylvia Sydney’s throat and went with Beetle Juice.
    But you are so right about Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. If that were up there, I’d have voted for it.

    Sweeney Todd, though Ed Wood would be a close second.  There was no way ST was going to win against No Country/Blood, but I was rooting for it anyway.  While I missed the prologue, I understood its omission in the film version. As for HBC, when I first heard her singing voice I thought it was awful, but when I watched the film and heard it in context, it didn’t bother me at all.  And I thought her performance, especially at the end with Toby, was phenomenal.  YMMV.

    Edward Scissorhands is my favorite movie of all time. Yes, for real.
    I love everything about it and wished it would have been nominated for best picture, best director, best actor-Depp, best (supporting?) actress-Ryder, art direction, make up, original script, and most of all the beautiful score (why the hell was THAT not nominated???).

    Though I think the best real chance for a best pic nom was Ed Wood. A very good biopic about the “worst director” of all time… Sadly it wasn’t. But I’m glad Landau won best supporting actor. Definitrely one of the best wins imo.

    A few of these films shouldn’t even be in consideration.

    Beetlejuice is a film I really like but I probably wouldn’t nominate it for Best Picture (unless we had to pick 10 films for Best Picture in 1988).

    I considered Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Ed Wood, and Big Fish. Three films I probably would have nominated in their respective years, but I actually opted for Big Fish because it left a strong impression on me….and while I love Sweeney Todd as a stage musical and thought the movie version was nearly as good, there were a couple of things that brought it down (Carter was miscast and Depp was really good but not amazing). Ed Wood was wonderful and Edward Scissorhands was really a great effort from him (and both of those films were better than some of the actual nominees from their respective years).
