I think the general consensus of the top 3 BP winners in this decade is:
3. 12 Years A Slave
Then there’s the rest.February 22, 2021 at 6:38 am #1204054175
With the exception of Moonlight and Parasite, I wanted another movie to win best picture.February 22, 2021 at 6:47 am #1204054178
2. 12 Years a Slave
4. The Artist
6. The King’s Speech
8. The Shape of Water
9. Green Book

It always seemed to me that The Shape of Water was the least polarizing Best Picture winner of the 2010s.
From the nay-sayers:
The King’s Speech is too old-fashioned and unremarkable, The Artist is definitive Oscar bait, Argo is forgettable, 12 Years a Slave only won because of white guilt, Birdman is pretentious, nobody will be talking about Spotlight next year, nothing happened in Moonlight, Green Book is a gross oversimplification of racism, and Parasite is overrated.
I don’t agree with all of these comments (especially not the racist one regarding 12 Years a Slave), but I have heard each of them made by various critics, film buffs, and casual audiences throughout the decade. However, the only complaint I have ever heard about The Shape of Water was “it wasn’t really my thing” from a rare couple of people. Everyone else either sang its praises as a deserving winner, or said “it wasn’t the film I was rooting for but I am perfectly fine with it winning.”February 22, 2021 at 7:30 am #1204054217
Parasite is the obvious number 1, with Spotlight and The Shape of Water far away behind it.

Parasite is my favourite winner of the last 20 years
Best Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)
Best Actress: Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)February 22, 2021 at 8:44 am #1204054340
I’m certainly not adding anything new here but yeah it’s no contest.
Those are the only two I would’ve voted for.
#3-12 Years a Slave (Strong film but I would’ve voted for HER)
#4-The Shape of Water (I liked it but I still preferred like 4 of the nominees ahead of it)
#5-Birdman (liked it but still preferred like 4 other movies)
#8-The King’s Speech
Also, PARASITE and MOONLIGHT are my two favorite BP winners of not just the last decade but the best winners since THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS…and frankly I think they are among the 10-15 greatest BP winners ever.
