    I’d guess that The King’s Speech or Million Dollar Baby would win Best Picture amongst the choices.

     

    Lead Actress would be a close race between Mirren and Theron.

    Charlize Theron – Monster

    Daniel Day-Lewis – There Will Be Blood

    Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight

    90’s

    Picture Fargo

    Even though it was one of the best pictures of that decade, it didn’t actually win Best Picture. The English Patient, unfortunately, won.
