        Adulthood is realizing Saving Private Ryan is slop just like Shakespeare in love. There was no reason for it to win best picture, and no amount of Omaha-beach gore porn will change that.

    I suspect Hugo only won because it's a Martin Scorsese movie.

      The Academy is such bullshit. The shortlist of movies that are watched by the members are drafted from movies studios put forward during award season. The awards arent representative of actual quality. There's also some bullshit where an actor or actress will get nominated for appearing in a well liked academy film despite their acting no being particularly of note.

    Last decade based on how remembered by both audiences and critics each film is.

    >The King's Speech
    >The Artist
    >Argo
    Completely forgotten.
    >12 Years a Slave
    Still liked by the critics, audiences also liked it, pretty Oscar baity.
    >Birdman
    I think people remember it better than the critics, hardly a classic.
    >Spotlight
    Forgotten.
    >Moonlight
    Still loved by the critics, considered one of the best movies of 2010s.
    >The Shape of Water
    Forgotten.
    >Green Book
    Forgotten.
    >Parasite
    Loved by Critics and audiences.

    So, it's 2, maybe 3 out of 10 (Moonlight, Parasite, maybe 12 Years a Slave).

      I actually really enjoy The King's Speech but maybe it's because i've struggled with public speaking my entire life. I don't remember if the competition was weak that year or what but it's a well made movie, maybe just a boring winner

        The biggest one was by far Inception. Then The Social Network, Toy Story 3. Even Black Swan, 127 Hours, True Grit seem like a better choice.
        I don't know if 127 Hours is popular among normal people, but this board can't shut up about it.

          No chance Inception would win but I'm sure they'll give Nolan his due this year. Social Network is the only one I think more deserving there...even though I love True Grit.

        Same here, although I think the Social Network deserved best picture, I wasn't too disapointed when Kings Speech won since it was also one of my favorite of the year. And if anything they're both remembered fondly so at least there's that.

      The King's Speech is good though. One of the more memorable performances from Geoffrey Rush. Moonlight was better than what most people here said, but that was more because Naomie Harris hard carried that mess of a plot.

      Godfather, Godfather 2, Lawrence of Arabia, Silence of the Lambs and NCFOM were all the best film of their year though I guess Godfather 2 and NCFOM were both in years they were equal best and cases could be made for other films. The other three outright best. Not a great strike rate considering that's over almost 100 years.

        Schindler's List was also the best film of its year and beat The Remains of the Day, The Fugitive and The Piano to win Best Picture. Sometimes you really are unlucky what you have to go up against as either of those 3 other films could have been the winner if SL wasn't released then.

      For me it's Oliver! winning over The Lion In Winter and Peter O'Toole also not winning Best Actor for his performance in that. The Cartoon Saloon still not having won Best Animated Feature yet is pretty silly too. Last year, I would've also preferred anything other than Turning Red to have gotten it instead of Pinocchio.

      Good pick.

      The best film of the year probably has never won its category. In the case of Best Picture, you're lucky if it's even a nominee.

      This too, I don't like it whenever people use whatever award shows arbitrarily nominate as a measuring stick for how good any particular year was and use it as an excuse not to look for lesser known standouts released around the same time. That kind of thing is happening more and more with games as The Game Awards gets bigger and it fricking sucks.
