10 on Tuesday

You had to know the memes were coming. It was only a matter of time, really. I’ve been following the Painted Sheep blog for a while and she does this Ten on Tuesday thing from Carole Knits so I figured, why the hell not? So here goes.

This week’s theme is 10 Favorite Oscar-winning movies. I tried (unsuccessfully) to keep it to Best Pictures only. So here they are, in order of release date:

  1. Gone With the Wind (Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.)
  2. West Side Story (It has some of the best music to come out of the musical era of Hollywood.)
  3. Amadeus (Always made me wonder how close to real life the move was.)
  4. Rain Man (the height of my Tom Cruise crush. I’m over him now, but back then? Yum-my!)
  5. Dances With Wolves (Back when Kevin Costner was cool.)
  6. Silence of the Lambs (Oh Anthony Hopkins, you were so delightfully and frightfully evil!)
  7. American Beauty (An all around great movie.)
  8. Chicago (First musical to win since Oliver!)
  9. Slumdog Millionaire (The contrasts in this movie were so striking and the tale was artfully told.)
  10. Ingourious Basterds (The only one on my list that wasn’t a Best Picture win. Which is too bad, really. It was a really amazing movie!)

We love movies in our house and we watch a lot of them. Not all Oscar quality movies either, hah! What Oscar winners are your favorites?
