It’s Lawrence of Arabia vs. Forrest Gump. Rocky Balboa in one corner, Bong Joon-ho in another. The English Patient rumbling like a madman with Citizen Kane. (OK, not Citizen Kane – because that movie inexplicably did not win Best Picture.) In this very special, shiny, golden edition of Vs. we’re declaring which decade had the best set of Best Picture Oscar winners. How exactly? Glad you asked. Host Mark Ellis breaks down the box office performance, Tomatometer and Audience Scores, legacy and influence, and more factors related to each decade’s films to declare the ultimate winner. Don’t agree with our pick? Offended by how much Mark dislikes Crash? As ever, let us know in the comments.
The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony will be broadcast at 5pm PST/8pm EST April 24, 2021 on ABC.
