I, too, choose Heath Ledger as having given the best male performance by a lead actor for the decade.
Daniel Day-Lewis gave a superb tribute to Heath, as he accepted the Best Actor award at The Screen Actors Guild
Awards.

Heath Ledger's performance always reminds me that he had no prior male performance to borrow from. He had to invent it.
It further reminded me of how Winston Churchill related his hestitation before a blank canvas before initiating the first artistic stroke. The war hero was so intimidated by what he had to do.

My Top 10 Best Supporting Actor Oscar winners of the 2000-2009 Decade are:

2009 Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds)
2007 Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men)
2002 Chris Cooper (Adaptation)
2000 Benicio Del Toro (Traffic)
2004 Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby)
2008 Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight)
2005 George Clooney (Syriana)
2003 Tim Robbins (Mystic River)
2006 Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine)
2001 Jim Broadbent (Iris)

God I hate LOTR. I thought everyone agreed that the third one was rubbish since it had 15 endings and went on far too long? Not that I saw it. The second one made me want to kill myself.

A good call on Charlie Kaufman for Best Original Screenplay. However, I think you chose the wrong film. As much as I love "Eternal Sunshine", I have to say "Synecdoche, New York" was the better film and a far more original screenplay.

Very good choice overall. Props to everyone involved!

Really liked the picks for Movie {only other film would suggest is "Mystic River"} I think Heath Ledger would top my list of actors for his role in "Brokeback Mountain" also Clint Eastwood for Director - too many excellent films to be overlooked & I would not have included any of the three women/roles on the supporting actress list.

Wow!

Great to see some love for Brokeback Mountain, Moulin Rouge and The Hours.

3 of the best films of the last decade IMO!

However am disappointed the brilliant Slumdog Millionaire was overlooked.
