When it comes to the Oscars, we all remember the shocking and infamous best-picture upsets – like Crash over Brokeback Mountain , or Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan . But there are also plenty of timeless movies that never even got nominated. In the wake of this year's Oscar nominations, we turned to the top movies of all time on review aggregator Metacritic to compile this list of the best-rated films to have lost out on a best picture nomination. These Academy-snubbed movies span from foreign masterpieces to animated classics. And there's a lot of Hitchcock. We cut the list off at 17, but the best movie of 2019 to not receive a best-picture nomination (based on Metacritic scores) was Portrait of a Lady on Fire – It has a score of 95 and ranks 47th on Metacritic's best movies of all time. Who were the big winners at the Critics’ Choice Awards? 17. Dumbo (1941) Score: 96 Number of reviews: 11 This animated classic got the live-action remake treatment last year from director Tim Burton, but it doesn't change the fact that it was never nominated for best picture. And the best animated feature Oscar wasn't introduced for another 60 years. 16. Psycho (1960) Score: 97 Number of reviews: 17 The first of Alfred Hitchock's classic films to appear on this list, the original Psycho nabbed four nominations – including directing for Hitchcock – but failed to enter into the best picture ring. 15. Some Like It Hot (1959) Score: 97 Number of reviews: 19 This Marilyn Monroe classic picked up a costume design trophy, but wasn't considered for best picture – despite five other nominations, including best director Billy Wilder and best actor Jack Lemmon. 14. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007) Score: 97 Number of reviews: 37 This Romanian film, about a woman who seeks an illegal abortion in the 1980s, managed to pick up a best foreign film nomination at the 2008 Golden Globes, but the Academy failed to even recognise it in this category at that year's Oscars – let alone a nod for best picture. The 20 worst-rated movies ever – how many have you seen? 13. The Third Man (1949) Score: 97 Number of reviews: 30 This murder mystery starring Orson Welles won an Oscar for black-and-white cinematography, and two more nominations. But that was it. 12. Hoop Dreams (1994) Score: 98 Number of reviews: 18 Not only did this basketball documentary not secure a best picture nomination, but it wasn't nominated for best documentary feature, either, which is considered to be one of the biggest snubs in Oscar history. 11. Rashomon (1950) ￼ Score: 98 Number of reviews: 18 This Japanese classic was awarded an honorary Oscar for best foreign film when it was released in the US in 1951. 10. North by Northwest (1959) Score: 98 Number of reviews: 16 Another Alfred Hitchcock classic, North by Northwest was nominated for best director, screenplay, cinematography, and sound. 9. Pan's Labyrinth (2006) Score: 98 Number of reviews: 37 Before Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water won best picture in 2018, his Pan's Labyrinth was nominated for six Oscars. While winning a few craft awards, the film failed to garner a directing or picture nomination, and didn't win best foreign language film. 3 ace movies from Parasite director Bong Joon-ho, Korea’s rising star 8. Touch of Evil (1958) ￼Score: 99 Number of reviews: 22 Orson Welles' Touch of Evil was nominated for precisely zero Oscars. 7. Pinocchio (1940) Score: 99 Number of reviews: 17 Guillermo del Toro is set to make a Pinocchio remake for Netflix, but we'll see if that has any more luck at the Oscars than the classic original. However, the movie did win best original score and song. 6. City Lights (1931) Score: 99 Number of reviews: 15 Charlie Chaplin's City Lights was one of the last movies of the silent-film era. Roger Ebert wrote in his 1997 review, “If only one of Charles Chaplin's films could be preserved, City Lights would come the closest to representing all the different notes of his genius.” 5. Singin' in the Rain (1952) ￼ Score: 99 Number of reviews: 17 The classic musical, starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, was only nominated for two Oscars – for supporting actress Jean Hagen and musical score. 4. Notorious (1946) ￼ Score: 100 Number of reviews: 15 Hitchcock's romantic thriller about a woman tasked with spying on Nazis was nominated for supporting actor and original screenplay, but was another Hitchcock film to miss out on best picture. 5 reasons why Joker is going to clean up at the Oscars 3. Vertigo (1958) ￼ Score: 100 Number of reviews: 32 Widely regarded as one of the best movies ever, Hitchcock's Vertigo was only nominated for two Oscars and won neither: best sound and art direction. 2. Three Colours: Red (1994) ￼ Score: 100 Number of reviews: 9 This iconic French film follows a model (Irène Jacob) and her strange neighbour who impedes on people's privacy, and was nominated for best director Krzysztof Kieslowski, best screenplay and best cinematography. 1. Rear Window (1954) Score: 100 Number of reviews: 18 It's no surprise that an Alfred Hitchcock film would top the list. Hitchcock, while making some of the most acclaimed films of all time, never won best director – he was nominated five times, and received a conciliatory honorary award in 1968. Rear Window was nominated for best director, screenplay, cinematography and sound. Want more stories like this? Sign up here . Follow STYLE on Facebook , Instagram , YouTube and Twitter .
