    Because the so called academy that “recognizes the best” always gets some things wrong, please do your top 5 ranking of some of few best decisions the oscars has made in the last 20 years.

    my personal list

    5. Marion Cotillard surprises in Best Actress

    4. Monique wins supporting actress with little to no campaigning for Precious (one of the rare instance where the actual great performance won)

    3. the Oscar correcting the history by giving Moonlight the best picture over Lalaland.

    2. Charlize Theron for Best Actress (quite possibly the best acting performance that won in the last 20 years.

    1. Of course, Parasite over 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Little Women

    I’m sticking mostly to upset winners as Oscar can “claim” them as its own decision, so to speak.

    Marcia Gay Harden for Pollock (okay it was sort of category fraud but that’s not really her fault)

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – Original Score

    Denzel Washington for Training Day 

    Adrien Brody for The Pianist 

    Talk to Her – Original Screenplay

    Spirited Away – Animated Feature

    Brokeback Mountain – Original Score

    Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies

    Ex Machina – Visual Effects (probably a fluke win, but an inspired one all the same)

    Moonlight – Best Picture

    Arrival – Sound Editing

    Olivia Colman for The Favourite

    Parasite – Best Picture & Director

    We had three great surprise wins in a row. Colman, Bong and Hopkins were all such inspired choices. The Parasite year in particular was just great. You literally couldn’t have scripted it better if you tried to.

    Parasite (The best BP winner ever)
    Bong Joon Ho (So deserving)

    Casey Affleck (Washington was awfully hammy, I’m glad they went with this subtle masterpiece of acting)

    ROTK Clean Sweep was the greatest one.

    In no particular order:

    Hopkins win for The Father saved AMPAS credibility.

    Gladiator and Russell Crowe – should have been Scott over Soderbergh too. Everyone still remembers Gladiator. We need epics in our Oscars

    Heath Ledger (TDK)

    Joaquin Phoenix (Joker)

    Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) first director to win for sci fi I think. Sci fi has never won Picture yet, darn shame.
