16 Movies That Would Have Won The New 'Popular Film' Oscar Award

Posted in Entertainment on Jan 17th, 2019


On August 8th, 2018, the film critics behind the Oscars announced they would be adding a new category to the line of awards; “outstanding achievement in popular film.” The award would be given to a film that wouldn’t necessarily meet the criteria of more “refined” films as prescribed by the Academy but would be considered a fan favorite film of the year. We’re certain these movies would have taken home a golden knight if the category existed years ago!

16. Twilight - 2008

Looking back on the film that revolutionized vampire-mania, Twilight wasn’t the pinnacle of a film-lovers movie. The acting was subpar, the plot was nothing incredible, but it still managed to be the most talked about movie of the year. While many love to discredit the acting abilities of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and direction by Catherine Hardwicke, there is no denying how popular Twilight was!
