Out of the 9 Best Picture nominees at the 2020 Oscars, Martin Scorsese's The Irishman is the only contender that went home empty handed.

Considered an early front runner when it got 10 nominations, and starring an all-star cast including Robert de Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, the film faded from conversation as the award season reached its end until it got the title of the night's biggest loser.

This is the second time a Martin Scorsese film had a similar fate. in 2003 the historical epic Gangs of New York also got 10 nominations, second only to eventual winner Chicago, and with actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis on board the movie also seemed as a very big contender, but alas, it couldn't win anything.

Out of these two Martin Scorsese films that went home with a 0/10 record, which one was more deserving of winning at least one Oscar?

Great face-off! My vote goes to The Irishman.

'Great intro, too. I noticed one little typo:

 in The 75th Annual Academy Awards (2003) > In The 75th...

(The "I" in "In" should be capitalized.)

Damn, I think both of them deserve Oscars.

Btw, Pencho. Please capitalize the "o" in your title.

> "Face-off" should be "Face-Off".

Thanks for creating this. I feel bad for Martin Scorsese. He should have won the Best Director award.

I haven't seen Gangs of New York, but I certainly think The Irishman deserved some love, it was one of my favorites.
I'll try to watch Gangs of New York soon so I can vote on my own poll

Nice poll. Well done!
I didn't like Irishman, so Gangs of New York for me.
