The Top Ten
Come on! Avatar was like Dances with Wolves meets the smurfs! How can you ask for anything more from American Cinema?
Oh yes, when The Hurt Locker beat Avatar, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, and Up. *Sighs* - booklover1
avatar was a awesome movie and the hurt locker beat it tsk tsk tsk
Oscars are so biased. They only like history dramas.
"Only we decide. We get to pick. Oscars shall always go to the natives and the genre shall always be historical dramas. End of Story."

My Fair Lady beat Dr. Strangelove and Becket. Oh, and lets not forget Zorba the Greek and Mary Poppins! - booklover1
It was a tough year. At least 3 of the other nominees could have won in any other year. MFL has actually stood the test of time.
Dare I point out that DStangelove was never a real contender. Back then it was Becket's to lose
