From Best Picture winners, I’d say ‘Crash’. It was a huge mistake from the Academy. Almost as bad as ‘Gigi’, in which Maurice Chevalier happily sings about “little girls”.February 17, 2021 at 3:38 am #1204045898

In my opinion, The Artist (2011) was the worst !!!February 17, 2021 at 3:55 am #1204045906
Since people frequently say how many Oscars a film has won (eg, no one says “Return of the King” won one Oscar), and films are promoted with “Winner of X Oscars!”, I think it is fair to include all films that have an Oscar of any type.
But going with Best Picture only, I have been rewatching all Best Picture winners in order recently, and so far I have to go with The Broadway Melody. Even by the standard of the day it was dreadful. I will also throw in Going My Way. I have seen it several times over the last fifty years and it gets worse and worse each year.February 17, 2021 at 4:07 am #1204045910
I’ve actually seen every Oscar winning film from “Wings” to “Parasite,” as well as every winner in the acting categories. The one film that doesn’t hold up at all is “Going My Way.” It’s saccharine and stereotyped. The moment when those street thugs suddenly sing as as an angelic choir is the worst scene in an Oscar winning film.
I can’t stand the mumbling. Or the lazy writing. Don’t know what to say? Just ask a question, have the other person chuckle, “Oh-ho…well…” and then get interrupted before they can answer. Ugh that was painful.
Also, I appreciate your reference to a film made in the 20th century. You will notice how many users only refer to recent films.February 17, 2021 at 4:16 am #1204045917
No question…The Blind Side.February 17, 2021 at 4:29 am #1204045921
Birdman, Crash, Green Book, The Hurt Locker and Spotlight are the worst. Moonlight is forgettable and I still can’t believe The Great Gatsby is an Oscar winning film
Anticipate "Hold My hand".

Birdman and Spotlight are so well-directed and powerful. Sad to see them mentioned here.
As for what I dislike, the first two I can think of: Bohemian Rhapsody and American Sniper.
