While my favorite winner of all time is Christopher Walken for 1978’s The Deer Hunter, I feel that the 2000s/2010s are the best overall. The only person that I feel didn’t deserve the award based on their work is Morgan Freeman, but that win didn’t really bother me all that much because it’s nice to see him have an Oscar. Same thing with Alan Arkin and Christopher Plummer.
My favorite winner from 2000s/2010s is…Christian Bale, though Heath Ledger would be an easy choice. Ledger does have a better character,
