STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES: Twelve years later, it's still hard to believe that Forrest Gump beat out not only The Shawshank Redemption, but Pulp Fiction, as well, for the Best Picture Oscar. The Arizona Republic revisits a list of some of the other biggest Oscar crimes, but inexplicably skips 1980 when Ordinary People beat out Raging Bull. Maybe if Scorsese hadn't been snubbed in 1976 (though I heart Rocky), 1980 and 1990 (the now-unwatchable Dances With Wolves over the still-sucks-you-in-every-time Goodfellas), he'd stop making showy "important" films in hopes of finally winning a statue and get back to making great films.

Any other snubs make your list?
