ANSWER: "Peyton Place" (1957) is considered to be one of the weakest choices for a best-picture nomination. The oversights of "The African Queen" (1951), "Now, Voyager" (1942) and "Some Like It Hot" (1959) were some of the worst snubs in Oscar history. The cold shoulder received by "Hot" is proof that Oscar has no sense of humor. The American Film Institute ranks "Some Like It Hot" as the greatest comedy ever made.
