    Of course, every Oscar decade has great winners, so-so winners, mediocre ones, and flat out bad ones.  Even thoug we have 6 more Oscar years left of the 2010’s, who are the winners  so far that you guys love, hate, can live with, or absolutuly can’t stand?  I think this decade has been strong so far, particularly in the acting categories and it looks like it’s doing better then the 2000’s, particularly in Lead Actress. 
     
    Here are my thoughts:

    Best Picture:  The King’s Speech is a very good film to me, maybe not a masterpiece but a fine winner none the less.  The Artist is a wonderful movie, even though The Descendants was more deserving to me. Argo is good, but overrated and unspecial (I am biased because I love Lincoln) and 12 Years is great and very deserving.

    Best Director:   To my mind, it was Arfonofsky, not David Fincher, who was robbed that year. Hooper’s win is fine, but I get the critiscm for it.   Michael Hazanavicius’s win is good to, thouh I need to see Hugo and The Tree Of Life. Lee’s win is fine, but Speilberg or O’Russel were worthier (LIfe Of Pi isn’t Oscar-worthy to me) and Cuaron is very deserving, but I felt McQueen deserved it slightly more. 

    Best Actor: Firth is terrific  though I need to see more of the nominees, Dujardin is great but Clooney should have won in a brilliant and powerful performance, Day-Lewis is fantastic, and McConaughey is  a fantastic winner.  

    Best Actress: Portman is excellent but I felt Kidman deserved it more and I need to rewatch all of them to get really definitive thoughts, Meryl is wonderful but I wish she and Davis had tied, Lawrence is great but I wish she had tied with Riva, and Blanchett is great.   Not a bad winner at all  with all deserving winners so it seems like the strongest category. 

    Best Supporting Actor: Bale is fantastic though I like Rush and Hawkes too, haven’t seen Plummer or Waltz but plan to see both soon. Leto was amazing and deserved the win.

    Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo was mediocre to me and undeserving but I will rewatch.  Octavia Spencer was fantastic, but Bejo was wonderful and would have made a worthy winner, but not quite to Spencer’s level. Hathaway was brillant, but I need to see Hunt and Adams. Lupita is very limited to me and Lawrence/ and Roberts should have won.

    Best Original Screenplay: The King’s Speech is deserving, Midnight In Paris is a great winner, haven’t seen Django or Her yet.

    Best Adapted Screenplay: Both The Social Network and The Descendants are terrific, Argo did not deserve to win  over Silver Linings and especially Lincoln, 12 Years was strong, but had some problems. Need to see Before Midnight, Captain Phillips, and W.O.W.S though.

    So, what are your thoughts?

    2010-2013

    If my top favorite of the year won, and landed the nomination, it’s in the top tier. In the second tier is the winner, even though they weren’t my first choice. The ranking is my fav of the last four years (i.e. Even though neither 12 Years a Slave nor The King’s Speech were my top choice, I still like their wins better than The Artist). The asterisks represent the film/performance I wanted to win but it didn’t even land the nomination.

    —–
    2.* 12 Years a Slave — I personally had it ranked second behind Gravity.

    2010-2013 (I’d rather rank it as well, because I so love all the Best Actress winners and they all so deserved the award, I’d never say “worst”) 

    Best Picture (boring choices all, none is my actual favorite):
    1. The Artist (This is the only one I loved)
    2. 12 Years a Slave (Overrated, and Gravity was 100x better, but it’s really effective and has depth) 
    3. The King’s Speech
    4. Argo 

    Best Actress (one of the categories that keeps pleasing me after Sandra won):
    1. Cate Blanchett
    2. Natalie Portman
    3. Meryl Streep
    4. Jennifer Lawrence (I adore her as well) 

    Best Actor:
    1. Jean Dujardin
    2. Matthew McConaughey
    .
    3. Colin Firth
    4. DDL (I don’t get the hype about the latter two at all, sorry)

    Best Supporting Actress
    1. Octavia Spencer (I love her so much here and in general)
    .
    .
    .
    2. Lupita Nyong’o (I like her the most, her performance is just overrated, not annoying like the last two) 
    3. Melissa Leo
    4. Anne Hathaway  

    Best Supporting Actor (hard to get excited by these performances, except for Leto’s, but I’m OK with all these wins):
    1. Jared Leto
    2. Christopher Plummer
    3. Christian Bale 
    4. Christoph Waltz 

    Best Original Screenplay
    1. Her (far and away the best winner in a long, long, long time = 2004) 
    2. Midnight in Paris
    3. Django Unchained
    4. The King’s Speech

    Best Adapted Screenplay
    1. The Social Network 
    2. 12 Years a Slave
    .
    .
    .
    3. Argo (WTF was this win???) 
    4. The Descendants (Again, WTF??? Even worse than Argo, at least that resulted in a good movie)

    Let’s see if I can remember all of these winners from the ’10s so far.

    BEST PICTURE

    1. “12 Years a Slave” (not a difficult choice at all from this decade so far)
    2. “The Artist” (for the novelty factor mainly)
    3. “The King’s Speech” (really should have been “The Social Network” FTW; that film would have topped this list easily)
    4. “Argo” (still miffed that this film won with all the great worth in its category that year)

    BEST DIRECTOR

    1. Alfonso Cuarón, “Gravity” (breathtaking scope and technical prowess from start to finish)
    2. Ang Lee, “Life of Pi” (see above; maybe to a slighter lesser degree than the top choice; fine achievement regardless)
    3. Michel Hazanavicius, “The Artist” (a director’s piece if I ever saw one; novelty factor at play again, but in a good way)
    4. Tom Hooper, “The King’s Speech” (ummm, no gurl, no)

    LEAD ACTOR

    1. Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln” (stunning work from him yet again)
    2. Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club” (possible career pinnacle? long live the McConaissance!)
    3. Colin Firth, “The King’s Speech” (the only win from this film that I rooted for; I’ll consider this win in part to his great work in “A Single Man” the year prior)
    4. Jean Dujardin, “The Artist” (he was the best element of his film, but I see this ranking dropping lower and lower in the coming years)

    LEAD ACTRESS

    1. Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine” (we might be looking at the best of the decade winner here; slay, Queen Cate, slay!)
    2. Natalie Portman, “Black Swan” (so close! this would have easily been my number one choice this time last year, or last week lol)
    3. Meryl Streep, “The Iron Lady” (shitty film, but I have to give credit where credit is due with Streep’s top-notch Thatcher impersonation)
    4. Jennifer Lawrence, “Silver Linings Playbook” (I supported this win then and now, but compared to these other heavyweights, yeah, fourth place)

    SUPPORTING ACTOR

    1. Christian Bale, “The Fighter” (loved this film and his great role in it)
    2. Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club” (I’ll never forget Rayon; career peak/transformative performance here)
    3. Christopher Plummer, “Beginners” (one of the few legacy/veteran wins that I can fully support and enjoy)
    4. Christoph Waltz, “Django Unchained” (his first win for “Inglorious Basterds” is one of the best wins of this category in the past 25 years; this win is most certainly not)

    SUPPORTING ACTRESS

    1. Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years a Slave” (one of the best debut performances I’ve witnessed; very glad she managed to win in a contested race)
    2. Melissa Leo, “The Fighter” (I’ll always love this crazy bitch; great role for a 50+ character actress that she completely ran with)
    3. Anne Hathaway, “Les Misérables” (I was Team Annie all the way this year, so no haterade from me; sad that so many turned on her the way that they did; “I Dreamed a Dream” wows to this day)
    4. Octavia Spencer, “The Help” (Spencer was Minny and totally nailed the characterization from the novel; acceptable win in her line-up, but compared to these other three ladies, meh)

    ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

    1. Aaron Sorkin, “The Social Network” (just no contest, maybe ever)
    2. Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, & Jim Rush, “The Descendants” (I thought the film was great, so I’m fine with this win and adaptation)
    3. Jim Ridley, “12 Years a Slave” (too writerly and theatrical dialogue in stretches, but this told Solomon Northrup’s story as well as anyone could, I imagine)
    4. Chris Terrio, “Argo” (this script winning over Tony Kushner’s “Lincoln” is shameful)

    ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

    1. Spike Jonze, “Her” (gorgeously original and striking screenplay; so glad this ended up winning over “American Hustle”)
    2. Woody Allen, “Midnight in Paris” (witty and whimsical work from Woody Allen, if not top-tier level from him)
    3. David Seidler, “The King’s Speech” (economical and erudite)
    4. Quentin Tarentino, “Django Unchained” (messy, rambling, and overlong)
