Biggest Oscar Best Picture snub: 'Wonder Woman' or 'Logan'?

A festive crown for the winner

"Logan" and "Wonder Woman" are both about iconic heroes who defeated villains on the silver screen, but the superhero epics were snubbed with zero Oscar nods for Best Picture. "Logan" is not only one of the highest grossing movies of 2017, but it's revered as an unexpectedly amazing superhero western and swan song for the X-Men's most popular character. "Wonder Woman" was a groundbreaking, commercially successful film with a female lead and a female director. Which snub hurt the most? 🏆😞

Below is the synopsis of "Wonder Woman," per IMDB.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

"Wonder Woman" is considered the first film in the DCEU that wasn't a critical flop. In fact, there was some considerable Oscar buzz around the film for being brilliantly-made, groundbreaking blockbuster. 

The epic garnered universal acclaim for its acting, story, female-led cast and direction by a female filmmaker. And let's not forget that the film grossed over $821 million globally at the box office. "Wonder Woman" was also the highest grossing movie of the summer. 

Unfortunately, the film's groundbreaking success did not translate into a Best Picture contender, leaving many disappointed. Critics argue this is a missed opportunity by the Academy to recognize a phenomenally praised and popular piece of work led by women.

Below is the synopsis of "Logan," per IMDB.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.

"Logan" is revered as a dark, gritty and epic ending to Wolverine's saga. "Logan" is definitely the best "Wolverine" movie in the trilogy, and it's also one of the best X-Men films in the entire franchise. The blockbuster grossed over $616 million worldwide, while receiving tons of critical praise. While some knew it was unlikely for the Oscars to recognize a genre blockbuster like "Logan" (it's a superhero flick), many were still hopeful. Snikt, snikt.
