90. Argo (2012)
The worst thing the Academy Awards ever did was give Ben Affleck the impression that he was an artist. To be fair, Argo is not a terrible film by any means. As a director, Affleck manages to create some feeling of suspense in this true story of CIA agents attempting to smuggle American diplomats out of Tehran by posing as a science-fiction film crew. The real problem with Argo—other than the fact that it gives virtually no credit to the Canadian government’s part in the real-life mission—is that there’s not a single memorable scene or line of dialogue in the entire film, and that simply shouldn’t be the case for any film that wins an Oscar for Best Picture.
