I wouldn't bother. It's godawful with Henry Fonda giving one of his worst-ever performances.
But kudos to your solidarity.
I think you might be missing the point of being an Oscar completist. A lot of what was nominated in the past is a slog to get through (would anyone willingly pop in 1933's Cavalcade if they weren't trying to mark it off their Best Picture list?), but get through it you must if you want to complete the nomination list.
I'm a completist myself, but there are films almost not worth it as you mention.
