Oscars 2014: Which Film Holds The Award for Most Mistakes?

Page 1 of 41234

The Oscars nominations 2014 list comprises a ridiculously strong set of films, actors and directors. It’s been a great year, with 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Dallas Buyers Club and Gravity dominating Academy voters’ minds, and all have enjoyed fruitful returns from the box office.

It’s not all perfect though; many of the films nominated for Best Picture feature are riddled with continuity errors and historical inaccuracies, not to mention some scientific miscalculations.

Winning the award for ‘most-riddled’ – an award name we made up – is Gravity, Alfonso Cuaron’s visually stunning space thriller starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Gravity is guilty of 12 wrong turns, including the scientifically inaccurate representation of tears in anti-gravity, the distance of the ISS from Hubble and some ‘righty-tighty, lefty loosey’ issues with oxygen tanks.

The highly rated I-Max feast also wins ‘Biggest Mistake’. The mistakes, like with last year’s popular political biopic Lincoln, were highly documented, and the general consensus suggested we ignore any minor scientific gaffes and focus on the wondrous visuals created by Alfonso and his band of techie experts.
