You win some, you lose some — and some of the winners are losers! Here are ten Best Pictures that still leave me gobsmacked wondering why they got gold.

A Beautiful Mind: The Academy, when faced with more challenging fare, often goes deep middle-brow. Ron Howard’s air-brushed 2001 biopic starring Russell Crowe as Nobel Prize winning schizophrenic mathematician John Nash sidesteps the not-so-pretty spousal abuse. Nash reportedly assaulted his wife (prettily played by Jennifer Connelly) at a faculty picnic where he held her neck down under the sole of his shoe. Antisemitism was another ugly attribute – not to mention the illegitimate child and the public indecency.

Marshall was supposed to have directed 2005’s Cinderella Man, a boxing movie she’d planned for 10 years, but her friend Ron Howard ended up making it after she threw her hands up over casting disagreements with Universal. “She really wanted Russell Crowe but the studio kept telling her Ben Affleck,” recalls Conlan. “Then, of course, after Ron Howard becomes director, Gladiator comes out and all of a sudden the studio wants Russell Crowe.”

He did, however, bone up on action films. “My biggest preparation going into it, to be honest, was ‘Gladiator’ and Russell Crowe’s character, Maximus,” he said. “The arc that he takes and the physicality of that. I looked at a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and how he translated his acting into his physicality. That was probably my biggest thing. That and like, Mike Tyson. … If you see Mike Tyson walk into the ring, he doesn’t need to say much. You know exactly why he’s there, his whole existence is like, ‘I’m going to finish you,’ and I feel like Dmitri needed that kind of quality to him.”

5. Russell Crowe

Not only will Russell Crowe provide an eerie resemblance to Bannon, but he has the ability to provide the edge to the character in a way that not many actors can. He has the ability to provide an appearance of the character that will be unyielding in its presentation of what Bannon represents at the core. The coldness and the calculative nature of Bannon will be drawn out by Crowe — delivering a chilling presentation of the role.
