Academy Awards Revisited: Who Should Have Won (2000-2002)

Academy Awards Revisited

On the verge of yet another awards season, I decided to revisit past Academy Awards and see if I agree with the list of winners. I will mostly concentrate on the following categorys:

MUSIC

CINEMATOGRAPHY

ACTING (LEAD AND SUPPORTING)

WRITING (ORIGINALS AND ADAPTATIONS)

DIRECTOR and

BEST FILM

And if there’s other notes about that years other categorys, I’ll do a quick run-by at the end. I shall begin the list from 1979, the year I was born and try to reach all the way to the year 2014. That seems appropriate. Shall we begin?
