Yeah, mine is very close to his as well.

No brainer. Although it's not even his best performance of the decade.
This.

Another no brainer.
I don't know about that. As MS said, this category is the toughest for me. I think Ledger and Bardem are equally iconic as villains.

Same as above, I just really, really love this film. And this is easily the most I've ever liked Zellweger on screen and she's perfect in the role. Blanchett is a close second.
A lot of people DESPISE this performance but she was the heart of the film for me.

I thought the more categories I included, the less responses I would get. As I said in the original post, we can do a follow-up with the nerdier/tech categories.

I haven't finalized mine yet, but I feel I'm at a disadvantage for not seeing Cotillard's film yet. There are many people who think hers was the best of the decade by far.

I'm very behind on last year's films so the list only covers 2000-2008.


PICTURE
2003 The Return of the King
*I felt the Oscars got this category wrong for most of the decade and Return of The King was an easy choice.

DIRECTOR
2003 Peter Jackson, The Return of the King
*The Coen brothers were a close second.

ACTOR
2003 Sean Penn, Mystic River

ACTRESS
2003 Charlize Theron, Monster

SUP. ACTOR
2001 Jim Broadbent, Iris
*Easily the hardest choice but I think Jim Broadbent stole the show in Iris.

SUP. ACTRESS
2003 Renée Zellweger, Cold Mounatin
*I wasn't a fan of the film or her as an actress but she was amazing in it.

Actually, I forgot about seeing Erin Brockovich, which is okay. Great to see the Roberts/Bullock combo bookend the Best Actress category for the decade.

The decade ended with populist mediocrity in that category just as it began.

One could make a similar argument for Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line as the creamy filling to a populist sandwich, but I liked her performance enough.

I was going to do one, but Jeez, I really am not at all familiar enough with the material. I think I know what my next Netflix binge will be.

To be honest, Witherspoon's competition that year (at least with the fellow nominees) wasn't that great.

And yeah, I thought she did a great job.

Yeah, I just looked up the nominees for that year. Not having seen all of them, I can't judge.

I really loved Naomi Watts in King Kong from that year, too.
