    For me it has to be the one of the worst Best Picture winners. Not because it was a bad film, but I remember finishing watching it and saying, “Ok.” I completely forgot about it until today. I don’t even remember much of it.

    That’s exactly is my point.
    It’s a pretty damn good film and a deserving BP winner of 2015 but it’s very forgetful comparing to films that came in 2015.

    -Mad Max Fury Road
    -The Revenant
    -Carol

    These are much more memorable films.Looking back almost 4yrs now,Mad Max Fury Road would have been best pick for BP winner in 2015

    I agree – The Revenant, Ex Machina, Carol and Room are my personal favorites from that particular year. Although I wasn’t a fan of Mad Max Fury Road, I respect its cultural impact and would have perferred it as a winner. Spotlight, while good, is a bit lackluster.

    Nope. Never understood why so many were pushing it.

    Nothing deserved to win more than Fury Road. Fury Road should have swept all 10 of it’s nominations and won Best Actress and Best Original Score as well.

    Being more memorable does not necessarily mean that something is better.

    great movie, even if it wasn’t my #1 of the year very much so a good BP winner in the grand scheme of things

    Yeah it’s a great film. Definitely my favourite out of the major contenders that year. When I think of the worst Best Picture winners I think of Driving Miss Daisy and Crash, certainly not Spotlight.

    Fury Road deserved to win but that was never going to happen. Spotlight is fine but not remotely great and definitely unmemorable.

    I largely prefer Crash over Spotlight. Spotlight is boring, Crash is simply brilliant.

    I vaguely remember it, particularly then talking to one priest who was so developmentally stunted, he didn’t seem to understand why what he did was wrong since it’d been done to him. I think that’s how the scene went. Highly unsettling. Good movie.

    To be fair, the film’s subject, scale or style doesn’t make it easy to sustain some sort of lasting impression. It is however a very well made film about an important subject matter and is fully deserving of its win, now at least it has an Oscar BP title as part of its legacy so it can be remember somewhat, and I was happy about that. MMFR, The Revenant won’t need that BP win to be remembered.

    Second best BP win for me of the decade outside of Moonlight, now if Parasite wins that becomes the second probably.

    I think it’s a well made movie but I have zero desire to watch it again. There was no scene or performance that really stuck with me as opposed to many moments in some other movies nominated that year.

    I actually rewatched Spotlight two weeks ago to check if it was as good as I remember. It was, though I’d have nominated Keaton over Ruffalo. I love Fury Road too but Spotlight would’ve been my second choice
