Oscar Do-Over: Which Movie Really Should Have Won Best Picture at the Oscars?

Congratulations to Ben Affleck, whose political thriller Argo took home the Oscar for Best Picture during Sunday’s telecast of the Academy Awards. 
 
In doing so, Affleck’s film bested the eight other nominees for Oscar’s top category. But what if Argo had to compete against EVERY movie that had come out in 2012? Would it still have emerged victorious on Oscar eve? Or would a different film have been your choice for Best Picture in 2012?
 
That’s our fun conversation starter for the morning after the Oscars: What movie really should have won Best Picture on Sunday night? Maybe you do think it’s Argo? But what if your choices weren’t limited to the nine excellent films nominated by the Academy? What if you could go off of the board and give the Oscar to any film that you wanted. Which one film would you choose … and why? 
 
I’ve gone on record as saying Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods was my favorite movie from 2012. And while I know that it never stood a chance of winning an Oscar, in a perfect world, it would have claimed a Best Picture trophy Sunday night for its ability to reinvent the horror genre and deliver a wildly original screenplay blessed with a twisty narrative that always kept the audience guessing. 
 
What about you? Would you have honored The Avengers for being the highest-grossing film of the year? Would you finally give Christopher Nolan an Oscar for his Batman trilogy? Or would you look to the fields of animation, documentary, foreign or independent film in which to bestow the Academy’s top honor? 
 
We’d love to hear your choices. Share them with us below! And read all of our up-to-the-minute Oscars coverage on our Awards Watch site.
