    I previously started a thread asking you all what your favorite Best Picture winners are from each decade, and user M H very interestingly also included his favorite nominees as well.

    So that gives me the idea for this thread. What would you say are your favorite Best Picture nominees from each decade (so far)? In order to qualify, the film had to have been nominated for Best Picture, but didn’t end up winning on Oscar night.

    1930’s: The Wizard of Oz
    1940’s: It’s a Wonderful Life
    1950’s: The Ten Commandments
    1960’s: The Graduate
    1970’s: Fiddler on the Roof
    1980’s: E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
    1990’s: Saving Private Ryan
    2000’s: Gangs of New York
    2010’s: Lincoln

    1930s: Gone With the Wind

    1950s: A Streetcar Named Desire

    Lawrence Of Arabia doesn’t count because it won Best Picture. This is about films that were nominated, but didn’t win.
