    What was the best film to win the Oscar for Best Picture from 2000-2009.? Champs were:

    2000 – Gladiator

    2001 – A Beautiful Mind

    2002 – Chicago

    2003 – Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

    2004 – Million Dollar Baby

    2005 – Crash

    2006 – The Departed

    2007 – No Country for Old Men

    2008 – Slumdog Millionaire

    2009 – The Hurt Locker

    Only ONE film on that list gets me excited. It’s the only one I would watch again … and again: Slumdog Millionaire. A PERFECT film.

    What do YOU think was the best Best Picture?

    I will go with Lord of the Rings, because in my mind it recognizes the achievement of the franchise as a whole, and because 2003 was arguably the least competitive year of this entire bunch.

    The Departed or The Hurt Locker.

    Slumdog and Crash don’t belong on this list. Shameful.

    Million Dollar Baby. Clint as vintage American auteur. One for the ages.

    The rest: a minor Scorsese film, a minor Coens film, a slightly overrated yet fine Bigelow film, the second best LOTR film, a mediocre yet watchable musical. Then it’s a disaster: Gladiator has Scott out of his league, Beautiful Mind is a compilation of Howard’s worst instincts, Crash is a total misfire. But Slumdog Millionaire is by far the worst.

    I’m surprised I’m so not excited by all of them. I haven’t watched all though.

    I mean, I liked Chicago a lot but I still would never pick it for Best Picture. I guess I will go with LotR.

    Crash and Slumdog Millionaire. I liked Gladiator but I wouldn’t have picked it for Picture. A Beautiful Mind is so aggravating. Chicago is fine, but I would’ve picked The Hours. Million Dollar Baby was nothing special at all, ugh. That was bait done well enough to have a late release and win the awards. I enjoyed The Departed.

    No Country for Old Men. Easily the most deserving as it was the best quality of the nominees and had the most crowd support.

    I agree with and also say The Departed or The Hurt Locker as the best. And I love Million Dollar Baby. And don’t care about the rest.

    My heart says Return of the King, my head says The Hurt Locker.

    No Country for Old Men for sure, without any doubt.

    Million Dollar Baby. Forever and always. It’s just one of a kind. The type of cinematic experience you don’t comes across often.

    Gotta go with The Departed here, though I’m admittedly not all that head-over-heels for any of them. Even the Scorsese pic I only give an A-.
