Rewarding movies is almost as old as the history of cinema. Many institutes honor producers, directors, and actors by giving different awards. The most famous of these awards is arguably the Academy Awards, which we more often call the Oscars. The Academy Awards, the first of which were given in 1929 at the ceremony held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, have continued this tradition for nearly a century.

Winning an Oscar is one of the most important indicators of success for every individual who is part of the movie industry. But of course, very few people manage to take this Oscar statuette, and they are, in a sense, members of the elite club. Even being nominated for an Oscar is a success that needs to be emphasized and it is possible to observe this on movie posters.

The Academy Awards, which are given in many categories, are as important for movies as they are for producers, directors, screenwriters, actors or other contributors. Regardless of the category, it is a source of pride for a movie to be worthy of an Oscar. However, there are also legendary movies that have never won an Oscar, although they are well deserved. Of course, after every Oscar ceremony, it is debated whether the winners deserve it, which is considered a tradition.

After the Oscar ceremonies, the movie posters are updated and an Oscar statuette is placed on the posters of the movies that have successfully left the ceremony. However, we know that many successful productions that deserve to win an Oscar return home empty-handed. I did a long search to identify the best movies that have never won an Oscar. There are so many famous movies that have not won an Oscar in any category that, surprisingly, some of them are at the top of the list of the most appreciated movies in history. You might be surprised to see some of the best movies that haven't won an Oscar, so be prepared for that. Let's take a look at the best movies that have never won an Oscar.
