MY FAVOURITE OSCAR NODS & WINS OF THE DECADE (ALONG WITH A FEW I COULD LIVE WITHOUT…)






Certainly this is a highly subjective post. It’s my opinion. So there could be no other way.

Just as an aside…

I’m almost finished viewing all of the 2009 releases. I thought I was done. But we’re getting another interesting film that I haven’t seen this weekend.

Rest assured that all of the usual lists will be in play directly after the OSCAR ceremony: my TOP 10 FILMS OF 2009, my acting awards, memorable performances from the year and a TOP 50 FILMS OF THE DECADE compilation.

I’ll have TOP 50 MOVIES posts for the 80s and 90s. As well as all that, I have prepared female and male performance lists for all three decades.

Good things come to those who wait, my adored readers. For now, we’ll deal with this.

I’m going to list my favourite OSCAR nominations and wins from the past decade. I’m also going to be open about the ones that I wasn’t exactly jazzed about.

All right. Let’s do it…
