Best Pictures That Never Were: Day 13

Year: 1979
Movie: Apocalypse Now
Best Picture Winner: Kramer vs. Kramer

Francis Ford Coppola’s dark and intriguing vision of a man’s heart of darkness revealed through the Vietnam War.
In the movie Lieutenant Willard receives orders to seek out a renegade military outpost, which is being led by Colonel Kurtz. Willard’s mission is to “Terminate with extreme prejudice.”
The film is very powerful and in my opinion one of the most powerful films of all-time. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two for Best Sound and Best Cinematography and it should of taken home Best Picture.
