15 Academy Award-Nominated Great Films That Didn’t Win a Single Oscar

Sometimes the academy gets it right, and other times they get things terribly wrong. A few of the most iconic, legendary films have received the honor of being nominated for an Oscar, but surprisingly, they were snubbed in each and every category. Here are 15 films that failed to capture the hearts of the Academy Award judges.

1. Easy Rider

This 1969 film garnered a Best Actor In a Supporting Role nomination for Jack Nicholson, as well as a Best Original Screenplay nod. Many believed the documentary-style biker film that centered around the hippie movement was deserving of taking home both awards. But sadly, the Academy wasn’t too impressed by this counterculture film about America’s psychedelic communal lifestyle.
