Live Poll: Best Picture Winners Without Acting Nods

After winning the 2020 Oscar for Best Picture Gisaengchung (2019) became only the 12th film in history to take the biggest prize despite not having a single nomination in the Acting categories.

Which of the Best Picture winners without acting nods has the best performances by its cast?

Between 'Parasite (2019)' and 'LOTR'. I would go for 'Parasite.'

Parasite might as well get my vote. The SAG award for cast shows the great work they did and I think no one got nominated as actors simply because they weren't recognized names.

I haven't seen three films in the poll: Braveheart, The Last Emperor and Wings. Among the rest, I think most of them don't have oustanding performances, probably with the exception of All Quiet in the Western Front, which may also get my vote as I suspect it will be the less popular choice.

This is one poll where I might have to vote for Return of the King.

Great idea, Pencho!

May I suggest one small edit to the intro? (below in bold: a comma after "Picture")

After winning the 2020 Oscar for Best Picture, Gisaengchung (2019) became only the 12th film in history to take the biggest prize despite not having a single nomination in the Acting categories.


'A bit of a tough call on the vote but I'd probably say 'The Last Emperor' or 'Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.'
