In the last decade or so, the Oscars have finally begun to lose their aura of prestige, as more and more fans began to realize that most of the nominations are similar to each other, and that the major studios clearly have the say when it comes to choosing the winners.

Still, the Best Picture Oscar winner still carries a certain amount of importance, and producers will go to great lengths to get the nominations they want, blatantly copying previous winners and using a variety of tricks to please the academics.

Here are the 10 worst Oscar bait movies, according to Reddit:

The folks over at Reddit don't take kindly to sloppy Hollywood work, ruthlessly scrutinizing every aspect of movies that were clearly made with one goal in mind – to get some Oscar nominations.

The movies on this list are all like that – after watching them, you get the feeling that the producers spent more time implanting Oscar-worthy storylines into the movie than actually caring about the quality of the writing, acting, and directing.

And that's really sad, because the stories that were used to create these Oscar bait movies deserved to be treated with dignity, and in the hands of other producers would have certainly been considered for an Oscar or two.

The Oscars 2024 will be held tonight, March 10, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The event is to start at 7 p.m. EST.
