    Imagine 70s gave you two Godfathers, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Annie Hall, French Connection, Patton, Deer Hunter, and then you enter the dullest decade in Oscar history. Only few people remembers Chariots of Fire, Outf of Africa and The Last Emperor.

    The 80s were such an interesting decade for film. Certain years yielded some truly fantastic films…such as 1989 which I still think is one of my favorite years for film ever and yet other years feel so barren.

    I also feel the Oscars really didn’t showcase the best of the best…not that such a thing is unusual.

    For me, AMADEUS was an easy #1 but here’s my ranking.

    #1-Amadeus
    #2-Ordinary People
    (these were the only two were I supported the winner)

    #3-Platoon
    #4-Chariots of Fire
    #5-Rain Man
    #6-Terms of Endearment
    #7-The Last Emperor

    #8-Driving Miss Daisy
    #9-Gandhi
    #10-Out of Africa

    Platoon. Saw part of it on TV as a kid and it frightened the heck out of me. It switched something on in my brain and I often think about it.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    Chariots of Fire is the worst Best Picture winner of all time. Just sayin’…

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Out of Africa. I’ve never been a fan of Meryl’s performances overall but she totally carried this film on her shoulders. And the film itself is an epic. But nearly all of these were great films.

    FYC: Vanessa Kirby - Pieces of a Woman
