We’ve already covered black and white films ignored by the Academy in the last quiz, but there have been plenty of modern omissions too. The six films below didn’t even get a single nomination. See how many of them you can get. Feel free to comment on those chosen or even some others you think of that apply.
1. The Searchers (1956)
2. Badlands (1973)
3. Mean Streets (1973)
4. The Terminator (1984)
5. Reservoir Dogs (1992)
6. Heat (1995)

I know 3 (or 4) of them. Heat is a monster! The shootout on the streets!
And the dialogue. And the acting. And the theme music…
I knew 5 and 6.
The last one was a tricky clue so well done on getting that one. Badlands is my second favourite film if you get the chance to see it
Interesting. Apparently “Metropolis” was a flop when it came out in 1926 too! (one of the all-time greats now). That makes me feel better!
I enjoy these quizzes, even if I only get about 50% right! 🙂
Some films are just way ahead of their time. Please keep doing them. I enjoy your feedback.
I knew the 1st and the 3rd one 😉
I’m listening to the closing track of Heat now. Astonishing music. 1 and 3 were probably the toughest ones.
Well I don’t know…I got them! 🙂 I need to listen to that track though :D. Have you heard Les Miserable track?? Its amazing! I love it
Not really a musicals kind of guy but I’ll give it a go.
Ohhh! A tricky one! x
I have to be sneaky sometimes 😉
I did use some tough pictures for most of them. I can’t rave enough about Badlands though.
Wow. Didn’t get a single one of these. My worst quiz yet! Lol.
Don’t worry. Pretty much everyone has a quiz like that at some point. They’re all superb films though if you get the chance to see any of them you haven’t already.
Not bad at all
