Believe it or not, forgetting an Oscar-awarded movie is as easy as forgetting to turn the alarm off on a Saturday morning. So if you're only familiar with 2021 Oscar nominees and winners, allow us to introduce you to these forgotten gems.


Watching a movie while you rest on your sofa or bed can easily be considered a privilege on its own. But nothing can annoy you more than searching aimlessly online for your next movie recommendation. Trust us; we've been down that road.

These Academy Award winners will make your holidays worthwhile and give you a reason to rest your head and unwind. Below, find the seven Oscar-winning movies that everyone nearly forgot about over time. It's showtime!


This 2001 movie starred Russell Crowe as John Nash, a mathematics expert who won the Nobel Prize for Economics, despite being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. The movie was nominated for 8 Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.



Chicago was released in 2002 and was based on a satirical stage musical starring Renee Zellweger, Richard Gere, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The movie earned 12 Oscar nominations and won 6.


Crash was a star-studded movie starring Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, Terrence Howard, Thandie Newton, and Ryan Philippe. This 2004 movie was centered around racial tension arising in Los Angeles and won 3 Academy Awards.



Around the World in 80 Days was adapted from Jules Verne's novel, starring David Niven, Shirley MacLaine, and cameos from Buster Keaton, Frank Sinatra, and Marlene Dietrich. It won a total of five Academy Awards.


Babel included A-listers like Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett and earned nominations for Best Picture, Screenplay, Director, Supporting Actress, Editing, and Score, winning the Oscar for Best Score.



The Reader graced the big screen in 2008, starring Kate Winslet, who even won the Oscar for Best Actress. The movie was also nominated for 5 Oscars, including Best Picture, Actress, and Director.


Compared to the other forgettable Oscar movies, The Imitation Game is one to leave its mark, especially with Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliant performance. But after almost 7 years, it can be hard to keep track. Don't say we didn't remind you!
