Why It Deserves Your Vote: Very rarely does a drama come and cause a movement, but that’s exactly what Malcolm X did. Months before hitting the screen, Malcom X had invaded fashion and bookstores as kids everywhere wore “X” hats and discovered his decades-old autobiography. And then in 1992, the film hit like dynamite – featuring a blistering performance by Denzel Washington that stands to this day as one of the Academy Awards worst oversights. CAST YOUR VOTE NOW!
