Comic book movies don’t get nominated for best picture Oscars but once in a while they are not only better than the nominations but better than the winners. Here are a few examples of movies that won best picture and a comic book movie from the same year that was better.

1990: Driving Miss Daisy (1989) not as good as: Batman (1989)


2002: A Beautiful Mind (2001) not as good as: Ghost World (2001)

2003: Chicago (2002) not as good as: Road to Perdition (2002)

2006: Crash (2004) not as good as: A History of Violence (2005)

2009: Slumdog Millionaire (2008) not as good as: The Dark Knight (2008)
