    We all know how the Academy feels about musicals. With Oliver! and My Fair Lady being Oscar veterans, voters can’t resist a jig or two. Chicago dominated the 2003 Academy Awards with six Oscar wins. Most of the big stars were nominated and it took awards for best set design and costumes.Chicago focuses two female murderesses, Velma (Catherine Zeta Jones) and Roxie (Renee Zellweger), and their fight for the spotlight and freedom. On stage, it’s a fun time, but once it hit the big screen, the p...

    As far as sappy melodramas go, Kramer vs. Kramer is pretty run of the mill. It focuses mainly on the relationship between a workaholic dad and his son after a divorce tears their family apart. Then a nasty custody battles ensues which illustrates Ted and Joanna’s true characters and how a small child can change that. There’s nothing overly significant about the film as a whole except for the exceptional performances by Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep (for which they rightfully earned Oscars)....

    1981 was a particularly raging year for film awards. One of Martin Scorsese’s best films, Raging Bull got snubbed for most of the big awards (but at least Robert De Niro got Best Actor) in favor of a very ordinary film called Ordinary People. The film is about a family trying to mourn and heal after the oldest son dies in a boating accident. The youngest son, Conrad feels survivor’s guilt and PTSD while his mother, Beth, just cares about getting back to normal rather than helping him.Their Be...

    Frequently regarded as the worst Best Picture recipient of all time, it’s not entirely clear how Around the World in 80 Days got into the running, let alone how it walked away with the actual award. It most likely had to do with the obscene demands that the production had. They used over 140 sets, 8,552 animals, 74,000 costumes, and over 68,000 extras. This set many records in the film industry (some that haven’t been reached since), but still lacked the spark that the Jules Verne’s novel had...

    1990 was a fantastic year for film. It was the year of Goodfellas, Ghost, and even the infamous Godfather Part III. However, despite having those iconic films in the running for Best Picture, they all lost to Kevin Costner’s mullet. Dances With Wolves stars the actor and director as Lieutenant Dunbar, an army officer stationed at a remote outpost in the Dakota Territory during the Civil War. There, he befriends wolves and the local Sioux tribe. He then falls in love with the beautiful Stands...

    Elaine Benes wasn’t wrong when she expressed her hatred for The English Patient. Frequently called one of the most boring films of the 21st century, The English Patient somehow managed to keep voters awake enough to give it a golden statue. The two-and-a-half-hour endeavor takes place mainly through flashbacks, as a cartographer relives his steamy love affair while on his deathbed. Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes are decent in their roles and have good chemistry, but the pace is slower tha...

    Even if it’s riddled with historical inaccuracies, a period piece is still a period piece to the Academy, especially if it's subject is arguably the most famous writer of all time. Shakespeare in Love has pretty-boy struggling artist, Will Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes), yearn for the rich Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow). They have to meet in secret because she is already promised Lord Wessex. Starting to sound familiar? It’s because Shakespeare uses Viola and their romance as inspiration to write Rome...

    Tom Hanks tugged at the heartstrings of Academy voters in 1995 as the kind-hearted Forrest Gump. The film leads a dim-witted protagonist through many major events throughout the 20th Century and incorporates him in the mix via composite photography. He goes from a restaurateur to a ping pong champion and once even meets John Lennon on a talk show. But take away the ridiculous plot, and all that’s left is a large dose of sap melodrama. If the Academy wanted an inspiring tearjerker, they should...

    1931 was a great period for drama and horror films. Unfortunately, none of those made the cut for the nomination. Instead, all we got were low end comedies and dramas that no one remembers. Amongst the nominees was Cimarron. While it was overly praised in the 1930s, Cimarron is an excellent example of a film that has not aged well at all.Set in Oklahoma during the land rush, Yancey Cravat turns a frontier camp into a respectable town only to leave his family to explore the Cherokee strip. Cim...

    Driving Miss Daisy has its touching moments and is a great film to watch with your grandmother when you have to do your weekly visit. Morgan Freeman is fantastic as Hoke Colburn as is Jessica Tandy as the titular character (a performance for which the veteran actress won her own Oscar). It’s a interesting insight into segregation, but that’s really all it was. The film took most of its time jamming a familiar subject down its audience’s throat. What voters didn’t know was that an even more re...

    Don’t know what this film is about? Don’t worry, barely anyone does. The only reason that its name is still remembered is because it famously beat Citizen Kane for Best Picture. The film is about the hard life in a Welsh mining town and how Mr. and Mrs. Morgan want to give their youngest son a better life than they have. It sounds like the typical family drama mixed with depressing and endearing elements— two traits that the Academy gobbles up. Corporate greed and a sleigh named Rosebud appar...

    A classic feel-good period piece, The King’s Speech was considered Oscar bait before it was even released. It’s about King George VI (Colin Firth) who abruptly gets pushed to the thrones after his brother chooses to marry outside of royalty. He’s insecure and nervous, especially since he has an extreme speech impediment that prohibits him from getting in front of a microphone. His speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), gives him the courage and guidance he needs to speak and be taken...

    With all of the talk and buzz, everyone thought that Brokeback Mountain was a sure win in 2006. It was tragic, romantic, and especially controversial to many viewers due to the homosexual relationship at the center of the film. Unfortunately, voters decided to go with a safe choice: Crash. Crash was a film that almost no one knew about. The name was barely mentioned throughout the year until it decided to do a last minute campaign before the big show. Even its director, Paul Haggis, thought o...

    12 Years a Slave (2013) became the first film directed and produced by a black filmmaker (Steve McQueen) and also the first to be written by an African-American (John Ridley) to win the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture of the Year.

  11. The Devil Wears Prada - Awards - IMDb

    THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is the haute couture of Hollywood filmmaking. Lovingly fashioned with style, romance and a fully realized script by Aline Brosh McKenna, it's a film about choices and the time in one's life when the world sparkles with opportunity.
