Pearl & Dean’s Oscar Also-Rans

While Jim DeRogatis will probably hit the roof tonight if “Juno” pulls an Oscar upset,  a recent online poll from Pearl & Dean of some 3000 cinephiles resulted in the following list of “films that should have won an Academy Award but never did.”

1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. The Sixth Sense
3. Fight Club
4. Blade Runner
5= It’s a Wonderful Life
5= The Great Escape
7= Taxi Driver
7= Psycho
9. Singin’ in the Rain
10. Dr Strangelove

The BBC site didn’t reveal what came in 11th place, but there had to be at least a couple of votes for another neglected classic.
