Poll: Face-Off: Marty Loses Big

From the 9 Best Picture nominees at The Oscars (2020), 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 The 75th Annual Academy Awards (2003), the historical epic Gangs of New York also got 10 nominations, second only to eventual winner Chicago (2002), 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?
