    Two of the most controversial Best Picture winners ever. I consider Green Book worse because Crash at least hits on a basic emotional level that I won’t deny clicks with me.

    I actually voted for CRASH.

    I still found myself at least finding GREEN BOOK watchable (probably wouldn’t think as lowly of it had it not won Best Picture…it shouldn’t have even come close to a nomination. It was a 3 star movie at best.

    CRASH may have had strong sentiments but I just found it to be overwrought and a chore to sit through. I recently revisited a few scenes and was reminded again how crazy it was that this film’s script has Oscar’s stamp of approval.

    Green Book beat Roma, Crash beat Brokeback Mountain, hence the real resentment belongs to Crash.

    I can accept that GB beat ROMA, but I can’t stand with the fact that Crash beat BBM.

    Crash is unwatchable. GB has charming leads. Also, BBM is an actual good movie. Time will come when people will admit Roma was a self-indulgent bore with some terrible acting and it only got traction cause of the Wall. Remove politics and nobody would care.

    Don’t tell anybody I said this, but they were both good.

    Green Book, however, was better.

    I salute the Academy for voting for Green Book however I still have grudge that Crash beat BBM.

    Crash beat Brokeback Mountain.

    Green Book beat ROMA.

    Both are one of worst winners ever but at least Green Book is watchable.

    One of the worst mistakes the Academy ever made was not awarding BBM Best Picture. Unforgivable.

    I think Crash did a better job of dealing with race relations than Green Book, which was basically a magic negro movie.

    It’s been 14 years. It’s a cliché to say that “time heals everything” but some of us still waiting or none at all.

    Thoughts on Green Book: Personally, I loved it. It’s a fun film, and I had an absolute blast seeing it in the cinema in 2018. I personally don’t think it deserves the hate it garners at all. In regards to Roma, even though it was a visually stunning film, I thought the plot was paper thin. It took me a few tries to get through it.

    I know I’m in the minority, but in the weak year that was 2018 cinema, Green Book more than deserved the win.
