Rank the Oscar Winning Movies: The Last 5 Years


Screen Shot 2016-02-19 at 11.55.37 PM

Time waits for no man. It also won’t speed up or round itself off just for your own convenience. We’ve spent the last 2 1/2 weeks here at LeBlog reviewing the Oscar winners for Best Picture from each decade starting with the 1930s. Participation has been excellent and we’ve had some very well considered and interesting conversations in the comments sections of these articles. Once we’ve gathered up the rankings for each decade, we’ll be throwing the top twenty vote-getters into one final showdown so that a fully articulated ranking of LeBlog’s top 20 Best Picture winners can be posted here before the Ceremony next Sunday.

Today’s installment and vote will be a little different (and will have to be weighted differently when it comes time to figure out where these movies are ranked) because the current decade is only halfway through. We’ll have to see where we are once the decade is over, but I’d say we’ve seen a mild upswing in the overall quality of the last several Best Picture winners despite my ambivalence towards one of them.

Le Show: Best Actor


Best Actor

Daffy and I are back with new episodes of our podcast, Le Show.  As we did last year, we’re tackling the Academy Awards.  Rather than ramble on for an hour about all the major categories, we decided to split things up.  So instead of one long show, we’ll be putting out several shorter installments.  In the fourth episode, we run through the five Best Actor nominees, who we think will win and who we think should win.

The A-List: Don’t Call It a Comeback


Dumb and Dumber To

This past weekend, Dumb and Dumber To exceeded even the most optimistic box office projections.  Critics were unkind to the sequel, but audiences who have been waiting twenty years for more Dumb and Dumber didn’t care.  Now there’s talk of a Dumb and Dumber trilogy!

The box office success of Dumb and Dumber To has some people talking about a comeback for Jim Carrey.  Carrey’s movie career has cooled over the last decade or so.  His last unqualified box office hit was arguably Bruce Almighty in 2003.  When a Dumb and Dumber sequel was announced, it seemed to some (myself included) like a desperation move.  But now, it seems like a “hail mary pass” that connected.
