2000s Academy Award Winners

Although not all Oscar winners are well receipted, they all have one thing in common: a great combination of cinematography, directing, acting, and art.

In the 2000s there have been several surprises and many others which have become part of the must-see films of this generation.

Academy Awards for Best Picture in the 2000s:
2009: The Hurt Locker
2008: Slumdog Millionaire
2007: No Country for Old Men
2006: The Departed
2005: Crash
2004: Million Dollar Baby
2003: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
2002: Chicago
2001: A Beautiful Mind
2000: Gladiator

Most of the winners can be seen almost daily on cable, but the two main surprises--Crash and Chicago--are almost forgotten. This is not because they are horrible films, they are actually quite the opposite, but because they do not fit into everyday programming.

If you haven't seen any of these films, go to your nearest rental store and grab them. You won't be let down.
