    Which film with a 1967 US release do you think should have been nominated for Best Picture?

    The nominees that year were:
    Bonnie and Clyde
    Doctor Dolittle
    The Graduate
    Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
    In the Heat of the Night
     (winner)

    Wow, there are 5 great films up there, that I would absolutely put above Dr. Doolittle or Bonnie and Clyde. The Graduate should have won this year, with in the heat of the night and guess who’s coming to dinner keeping their noms. I would then put in Good Bad and Ugly, which is just incredible, then Cool Hand Luke or Jungle book. Persona and Dirty Dozen are also great, but I put them slightly lower.

    Doctor Doolittle getting nominated might possibly be the worst nomination ever for Best Picture…a couple of films are in contention as well but considered the few movies that got snubbed and seeing the movies it was placed beside, it is truly laughable and a travesty.

    Of the actual nominees, I am in the group in support of The Graduate.

    I’d rank the list as follows:

    1-The Graduate
    2-Bonnie & Clyde
    3-In The Heat of the Night
    4-Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
    .
    .
    .
    .
    (about 2000 more dots)
    5-Doctor Doolittle

    I think the top 4 are all very wonderful films in their own ways.

    Looking at the snubbed films, four really jump out at me: Persona, The Jungle Book, Cool Hand Luke, and In Cold Blood.

    Of those four, In Cold Blood seemed to come the closest to a nom since it got in for Director.

    Gregory Peck campaigned hard for The Jungle Book and it would have been nice to see more love for animated films prior to Beauty and the Beast.

    Cool Hand Luke is definitely a very iconic film and also a strong film.

    Persona was an amazing film and the performance of Bibi Andersson was one of the best of all time.

    Tough call!! And to be honest, ANY of the films could have been nominated (even Thoroughly Modern Millie) and it would’ve been a better nomination.

    For right now, I’ll give it to In Cold Blood.

    Wait, Daniel, I’m confused. Wasn’t The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly eligible in 1968? IMDB says it didn’t come to the US until January of that year.
