Creating a moving but not manipulative war movie is no easy task, and countless Hollywood directors have failed miserably with their war dramas, angering audiences with their superficial portrayals of horrific battles and tear-jerking depictions of war atrocities.

Fortunately, a handful of admittedly brilliant war dramas have been produced in the last 30 years or so that not only truthfully portray the horrific aspects of war, but also manage to immerse the realistic characters in those stories, allowing the viewer to invest in the narrative without feeling manipulated for a second,

Here are 10 great Oscar-nominated war movies:

As you may have noticed, some of the war movies on this list are comedies, but that doesn't detract from their realistic and endearing nature. There's always a place for laughter, and many real-life soldiers managed to survive the hardships of war only because of those brief moments of laughter that truly restored the spirit.

And it's comforting to see that the Oscars can recognize war comedies as being on the same level as these long, meticulously researched dramas because they're both doing the same thing – warning people against war and spreading the ideas of pacifism – albeit in different registers.

The Oscars may be notoriously blind when it comes to small auteur films, but at least the academics were able to honor the most interesting war films with nominations!

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