‘Parasite’ sweeps Gold Derby Film Decade Awards (2010-2019), but 15 other films honored; Amy Adams triumphs as top performer

There was no stopping the recent awards juggernaut “Parasite” when Gold Derby users voted on winners our Decade Awards that hail best film achievements from 2010 to 2019. It swept up six out of its eight total nominations, including Best Picture of the Decade. In fact, it’s the only film that won more than once. And when combined with our yearly Gold Derby Awards, where it also won six times, “Parasite” now becomes our most awarded film of all time with 12 total awards. Scroll down to see our complete list of winners.

A total of 1,695 registered Gold Derby users gave “Parasite” Best Picture, Best Director (Bong Joon Ho), Best Original Screenplay, Best Ensemble Cast, Best Film Editing and Best Foreign Language Film. Those are the exact same categories it won at our yearly awards. The only categories it lost were Best Supporting Actor (Song Kang Ho) and Best Production Design.

Was it recency bias that led to the “Parasite” domination? That may be part of it. After all, our voters cast their ballots in the afterglow of the historic Oscars, where “Parasite” also took Best Picture. But that doesn’t account for all of it when you consider the 15 other categories that went to 15 different films, including Best Actress of  the Decade (Natalie Portman for “Black Swan”) and Best Adapted Screenplay of the Decade (“The Social Network” by Aaron Sorkin) which were awarded to films from the very beginning of the decade in 2010.

Portman beat Amy Adams (“Arrival”) for Best Actress, but Adams rebounded to claim the prize as Performer of the Decade for her body of work. In addition to “Arrival,” her last 10 years in film included Oscar-nominated roles in “The Fighter,” “The Master,” “American Hustle” and “Vice,” plus a wide range of other movies like “The Muppets,” “Trouble with the Curve,” “On the Road,” “Her,” “Big Eyes” and “Nocturnal Animals.” She also portrayed Lois Lane in the superhero films “Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League.”

Last fall Adams was also nominated for our Performer of the Decade award for television even though her only TV credit from the last 10 years was “Sharp Objects,” which is a testament to our users’ admiration of her. Adams was the only actress nominated for Performer of the Decade at both the TV and film awards. Check out the rest of our winners below. All nominees and champs were determined by a public vote over the past few weeks. What do you think of our choices? Discuss this and more here with your fellow movie fans.
