    What are worst year for main Oscar categories?

    Best Picture: 2009. Except Precios and to extent An Education no best picture nominee was great imo. 1985 and 1989 are also meh.

    Best Actor: 1986. Paul Newman wasnt bad in The Color of Money, he was good but whole that bunch is meh.

    Best Actress: 1994 is very popular choice here but Im in minority thinking all performances are good and except Sarandon all Oscar worthy, but movies here are mediocre. My choice here is 1970 or 2019 or 1984. None of those years have strong nominees.

    Best supporting Actor: 1985 hands down. Ameche win is baffling but other four nominees are also unremarkable.

    Best supporting Actress: 1977 (Redgrave deserved her win and is Oscar worthz but other four are all bland imo.)

    2009 had The Hurt Locker, Inglorious Basterds, Up and Avatar…

    Best Picture: 1966 (A Man For All Seasons,etc)

    Best Actor: 2018 (Dafoe is great and Cooper is good but the rest is just…)

    Best Actress: 1974 (Ellen Burstyn, etc)

    Best Supporting Actor: 1977 (Jason Robards, etc. Worst line-up ever)

    Best Supporting Actress: 1978 (Maggie Smith was good. The rest is forgettable)

    1974 Best Actress had Rowlands and Dunaway who were amazing plus Burstyn who was good. There are far worse years for the category like 1994, 1984 and 2019.

    No. 2018 Best Actor lineup was pretty great. You didn’t even mention Bale, who was the best. And Malek was still fantastic too.

    One actually terrible lineup is 2014 Best Picture. There weren’t any terrible movies, but a lot were just pretty meh.

    I mentioned them as the rest, with Viggo, because they were all bad.

    1989. Think of all the movies that could’ve gotten into Best Picture instead of the ones that did. This was the year of Do The Right Thing, Glory, When Harry Met Sally, The Little Mermaid, Henry V, The Fabulous Baker Boys, etc.

    And what was the Best Picture winner that year? Driving Miss Daisy.

    2018 was an absolute f*cking dumpster fire. The Favourite and BlacKkKlansman were the only worthy films in the catalogue of nominees. You might be indignantly exclaiming “but muh Roma“, and to that I say: tedious, storyless, two-hour-long bore-fest. The Favourite deserved to sweep. It was robbed at gun-point by a derivative retread of Driving Miss Daisy.
