    I think that Network is the indisputable option here. Screenplay, actor and actress are givens, and it should have won Director and Picture over Rocky.

    American Beauty was so close, but it really comes down to Swank or Bening. I would personally pick Swank by a hair here, but I would have been fine with either option.

    In a perfect world, Begin Again would have a good shot at winning the big five.

    I couldn’t possibly give it to Network.  Good as Peter Finch was, Robert De Niro created a legendary character.  He was Taxi Driver, nearly all of its runtime, and gave one of the most committed and layered performances.  I think its Scorsese’s best film, so the fact he wasn’t nominated for BD is just egregious.

    Gone With The Wind always seems like it should have won on paper.  Clark Gable was the only missing link and considering the huge popularity of the picture it is rather surprising he didn’t win.  Casablanca isn’t listed here—I know the leads didn’t win, but that’s one film I can definitively say should have been a big five.

    Even though Swank was really good in Boys Don’t Cry, Anette Benning really deserved to win. No they didn’t know Million Dollar Baby was coming but Benning has yet to win an Oscar and that should have been her’s

    Tough choice between American Beauty and Virginia Wolf. Went for the former, but only because I hate Benning´s lose much more than Burton´s (though this one angers me as well).

    She wasn´t. She should have (which is not to mean Swank wasnñt deserving).

    THE GRADUATE    and  WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?

    Hoffman and Bancroft were astonishing….
    Pic and Nichols for sure..and a great screenplay.
    ITHOTN  WTF????

    Taylor and Burton  –Burton totally better than Scofield.
    Pic and Nichols for sure…and a great adaptation.
    I happen to like  A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS
    but its not in the same league…

    ^The Graduate is another good example. The only one I wouldn’t be sure of is Bancroft beating Hepburn. Bancroft was more supporting than lead, where Hepburn had one of the best performances of her career.

    I went with Network, so I came pretty close to choosing American Beauty. Even though Annette Bening would’ve been my personal preference, I find it slightly hard to argue with Swank’s win despite the fact that Bening would go on to still be Oscar-less.
