    Loved “Gravity” and “Her”, liked “12 Years a Slave”, “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Philomena” a lot, didn’t exactly care for “Nebraska”, “American Hustle”, “Captain Phillips” and “Wolf of Wall Street”. It was a strong group of nominees, but of all of them, the one that will be more forgetable will be the black-and-white picture of the bunch.

    To me, the worst was “Dallas Buyers Club”  — Terrific performances, but TV-movie direction and a by-the-numbers script.   To take a contrary view, I suspect the black-and-white picture of the bunch will still be remembered long after several of these nominees have faded from memory.

    Could the people who picked 12 Years explain themselves? It seems like it’s just backlash against its victory…

    This was a solid bunch of nominees. No truly bad flicks. Even going back to the five nominee era this is the first time in a while I haven’t aggressively disliked at least one of the Best Picture nominees. That doesn’t mean there weren’t deserving movies that were overlooked for things closer to mediocre. Dallas Buyers Club, American Hustle and Captain Phillips are for me the weakest, but I’d at least give those B’s. On the flip side the only movie from last year I was close to loving, Before Midnight, was snubbed.

    I’m surprised American Hustle isn’t getting more votes considering the backlash it got on sites like this. It got my vote, but i don’t think it was a bad movie, just the least good out of the 6 i’ve seen. It was a decent movie among some great ones.

    And I think Philomena is just really, lovely is the only word I can think of to describe it. It’s just sweet and kinda huggable so it’s hard ot dislike it, even if you don’t actually like it. it was actually one of my favorites of the year and I was really happy it got in

    I’m gonna go with Dallas Buyers Club, but even still I really like the film and I think Jean-Marc Vallee is a terrific director. Second worst is American Hustle simply because it’s nothing compared to what David O. Russell is capable of.

    Awww, looks like some people are angry that 12 Years a Slave won best picture and are taking out their anger with this poll. Oh how I wonder which posters they could be.

    You probably should have waited a bit to post this poll, emotions are still running high.

    Philomena definitely the worst, though I feel bad saying that. I actually liked it a lot, it’s a very good movie. But it just does not belong in amongst these nominees. Inside Llewyn Davis would have been a better choice, or Blue Jasmine.

    Haven´t seen Philomena nor Nebraska, but I wouldn´t say there is a worst in this groop. It was a great line-up. Maybe weekest sounds better ha. I voted for American Hustle but only because its the one I liked the least, but not because I think its bad at all…

    I liked 7 of the 9 nominees with 4 of them on my top ten. The two that I didn’t like were Captain Phillips and Wolf of Wall Street. Now, Captain Phillips was a boring two hours where the pay off was shooting three Africans in the head, but I voted for Wolf of Wall Street because with so much talent in front of and behind the camera, it should have been much better.

    All good movies, but not sure how people could consider Dallas Buyers Club or American Hustle the very best of the year.  I voted American Hustle because Dallas Buyers Club had more “important” subject matter.
