WE ARE DONE WITH THE TWENTIES!
We have come a long way. So this decade started us off with Way Done East and we finished with Pandora's Box. We have laughed with Buster Keaton and were disgusted with Griffith. We were entirely weirded out with Andalousian Dog (I pretty sure I screwed up the spelling) and delighted with The Passion of Joan of Arc. I feel like I have learned a lot since I started and I also think I am a better person for experiencing this very unique era.
So I decided to do the Oscars for this decade. Okay, so they are not really the Oscars considering I am going to make up most of my own categories and this is going to span a decade rather than a year. But work with me people! Feel free to comment on differing opinions or if you want to come with your own categories you may. Here we go!
