5 Movies That Should've Been Highlighted Last Night at the Oscars
So Chicago got a lot of love last night, huh? Yes it won the Oscar for Best Picture 10 years ago, and yes, Craig Zadan was one of the producers of the film and also happened to be a producer of the show last night too. So, we get it.
But there were plenty of great films honored at the 2003 Academy Awards. Here are the 5 movies from 10 years ago we wish were highlighted last night:
1. 8 Mile
“Lose Yourself” from the 8 Mile soundtrack won an Oscar in 2003 for Best Original Song. Um, if Eminem came out to perform that as a surprise last night everyone's head would’ve exploded!
2. Gangs of New York
This Martin Scorsese-directed film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor among many more categories for a total of ten nominations. Could we get the cast to present an award or something?
3. Catch Me if You Can
Bottom line: last night needed 100% more Leonardo DiCaprio. This film was nominated for two awards including an nom for Christopher Walken as Best Supporting Actor. We wish some of the fun of this film was pumped into the show last night.
4. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
What a classic! It was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the 2003 ceremony. Imagine the party they could've had on stage last night!
5. Lilo and Stitch
One of the more underrated yet adorable Disney films that was up for Best Animated Feature in 2003. If Ted got his moment to shine, why not Lilo and Stitch? They would probably be better behaved!
