Two of the Academy's biggest Best Picture mistakes occurred this century, which films were they?
6. Best Actress 2005 - Hilary Swank, 'Million Dollar Baby'
Who should have won
Annette Bening, "Being Julia," Imelda Staunton, "Vera Drake" or Kate Winslet, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
Let's see, Staunton was absolutely devastating in her breakthrough role in "Drake," Winslet's turn in "Sunshine" is even better than her Oscar winning work in "The Reader" and Bening's work in "Julia" may be the most subtle and layered performance of her career. Instead, Swank's character breaks her neck and wins thanks to the over-rated "Baby" dominating that year's show. Swank becomes a two-time winner who hasn't had an impressive performance since.
