    If the Academy held a special Oscars ceremony where there would be ten nominees for each category to determine the best films of the entire 20th Century (defined as 1901-2000), this is what I predict the nominees in the major categories would be.

    Prediction methodology is an “Oscar points system,” where I add the number of Oscar nominations to the number of Oscar wins for each film. The higher the points, the higher the ranking. Ties are broken first by the number of points in the major categories (Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Original Sceenplay, and Adapted Screenplay), and then by the number of points in the Big Five categories (Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Original Screenplay, and Adapted Screenplay).

    Nominees are determined by taking going down said list, looking at which awards were nominated for and won, and taking the first ten WINNERS in each major category that appear on the list. No nominees that did not win at the ceremony in which they were nominated appear on this list.

    I want you to reply with your choices for the following categories, choosing from the following nominees for those categories:
