Dramas, true tales, and inspiring stories: these are the all the kinds of films that make it into the Oscars. Whether you feel as if the Oscars are fair or not it's a filmmaker's dream to get up on that stage and accept that award, or multiple ones. The coverage is unprecedented, the fans riot on social media, and everybody waits with bated breath. Will their favorite actor or flick make the cut?
Because only emotional dramas and true stories really make the cut to even be considered a contender for the Oscars, this has led to the changing of the fanbase. A lot of men stay away from Oscar winning films, because most of them involve people crying. Now I'm not saying that all men are insensitive and want only explosions, because there is merit in seeing a beautifully acted cinematic piece. I'm saying that when every Oscar film is like that, it gets hard to really take it seriously.
But even for the most cynical man on the planet, there are some Oscar winners that are right up their alley. No questions on masculinity necessary for these picks, and they're still fantastic films nonetheless. Without further ado, here are 10 Oscar winning films for the real man. Get ready to embrace some testosterone, cause it's about to get manly in here.
9 Pulp Fiction
8 Schindler's List
7 Independence Day
6 Men in Black
5 Saving Private Ryan
3 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
2 The Dark Knight
1 American Sniper
The tale of real American sniper, Chris Kyle, is both a tense and heartbreaking one. He had the largest record for the most confirmed kills of any sniper, despite the odds being stacked against him. He was considered too old to join the military, but did so and succeeded with flying colors. He fought with and lost men just to save his country after the 9/11 attacks. Then eventually, he was able to wind down and settle back home to help other soldiers who suffered from PTSD. He was a true America hero, and deserves a salute from every individual in this country.
