Oscar Picks of the Decade

So here's a fun little thing I found on another site. Pick your favorite winner of the decade from each category.

I think the idea would be to pick what is the best from each list, not necessarily what was the most deserving in that particular year.

PICTURE
2000 Gladiator
2001 A Beautiful Mind
2002 Chicago
2003 The Return of the King
2004 Million Dollar Baby
2005 Crash
2006 The Departed
2007 No Country For Old Men
2008 Slumdog Millionaire
2009 The Hurt Locker

DIRECTOR
2000 Steven Soderbergh, Traffic
2001 Ron Howard, A Beautiful Mind
2002 Roman Polanski, The Pianist
2003 Peter Jackson, The Return of the King
2004 Clint Eastwood, Million Dollar Baby
2005 Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain
2006 Martin Scorsese, The Departed
2007 Joel & Ethan Coen, No Country For Old Men
2008 Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire
2009 Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker

ACTOR
2000 Russell Crowe, Gladiator
2001 Denzel Washington, Training Day
2002 Adrien Brody, The Pianist
2003 Sean Penn, Mystic River
2004 Jamie Foxx, Ray
2005 Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Capote
2006 Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland
2007 Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
2008 Sean Penn, Milk
2009 Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart

ACTRESS
2000 Julia Roberts, Erin Brockovich
2001 Halle Berry, Monster's Ball
2002 Nicole Kidman, The Hours
2003 Charlize Theron, Monster
2004 Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby
2005 Reese Witherspoon, Walk The Line
2006 Helen Mirren, The Queen
2007 Marion Cotillard, Ma Vie En Rose
2008 Kate Winslet, The Reader
2009 Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side

SUP. ACTOR
2000 Benicio Del Toro, Traffic
2001 Jim Broadbent, Iris
2002 Chris Cooper, Adaptation
2003 Tim Robbins, Mystic River
2004 Morgan Freeman, Million Dollar Baby
2005 George Clooney, Syriana
2006 Alan Arkin, Little Miss Sunshine
2007 Javier Bardem, No Country For Old Men
2008 Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight
2009 Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

SUP. ACTRESS
2000 Marcia Gay Harden, Pollock
2001 Jennifer Connelly, A Beautiful Mind
2002 Catherine Zeta Jones, Chicago
2003 Renée Zellweger, Cold Mounatin
2004 Cate Blanchett, The Aviator
2005 Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener
2006 Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls
2007 Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton
2008 Penelope Cruz, Vicki Cristina Barcelona
2009 Monique, Precious

Those are the big six, maybe we can do a follow-up with the screenplay awards, cinematography, and editing, or something.

This was harder than I thought it would be, mostly due to some iffy quality on display:

FILM - No Country For Old Men
DIRECTOR - Steven Soderbergh, Traffic
ACTOR - Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
ACTRESS - Marion Cotillard, Ma Vie En Rose
SUP. ACTOR - Christop Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
SUP. ACTRESS - Cate Blanchett, The Aviator

Supporting Actor was the toughest to call, some great and memorable performances in there.

I'd do one of these, but I'm afraid it would come out looking exactly like Monkeyforeskin's, except maybe with the Coens for BD.

PICTURE
2003 Return of the King

More a recognition of the entire series, which I really do enjoy, and definitely moreso than the rest of the BP winners of the decade. No Country is right up there next to it, though. Maybe I'll call it a tie.

DIRECTOR
2005 Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain

It still sucks that this lost to Crash.

ACTOR
2007 Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood

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

ACTRESS
2002 Nicole Kidman, The Hours

I adore this movie, and Kidman's section was the best part of it.

SUP. ACTOR
2009 Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

Another no brainer.

SUP. ACTRESS
2003 Renée Zellweger, Cold Mountain

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.

Question - did Laz not include the screenplay awards because he can't bring himself to type 2007 Diablo Cody, Juno?

Honest to blog, I think that's probably why.

PICTURE
No Country for Old Men

DIRECTOR
Steven Soderbergh, Traffic

ACTOR
Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood

ACTRESS
Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line (Only film of the bunch that I've seen)

SUPPORTING ACTOR
Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds (Insanely hard to choose between him and Bardem)

SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Cate Blanchett, The Aviator

On a separate note, maybe it would be more fun to delve into the nominees for each year and evaluate that later.

2004 was a tough year, they should have declared a damn tie between DiCaprio and Fox

It shouldn't have been either of them. It should've been Paul Giamatti for Sideways, but what do you know, he wasn't nominated.

I like that movie...Paul Giamatti is great. I really enjoyed John Adams and Cold Souls
