Since this thread was created, Daniel Day-Lewis has won two more Oscars, both for performances that were better than his Gangs Of New York one. You certainly can't say that he's underrewarded now.

Anyway, I looked through the thread and was surprised to see that not one person mentioned Harvey Weinstein's shenanigans that year. His campaign to get Marty's best director Oscar that year was serious overkill and it turned many people off, which then hurt the film.

At least that time when Scorsese lost, it was to a great director.

I consider this to be Scorsese's masterpiece. It's an epic film and should be watched by any film buff.

I thought DDL deserved an Oscar for his performance as Bill the Butcher.
And Scorsese should of won Best Director and this film should of won Best Picture but like I mentioned earlier the Academy was really wanting a musical for quite some time.

DiCaprio's accent disappearing and reappearing throughout the film and Cameron Diaz killed any chance of it being one of the Scorsese greats. Still IMHO DDL's best performance.

DDL's performance in GONY was excellent, but that doesn't mean the film was also great. It was a decent film, but not best picture worthy in my opinion.

9) About a Boy
10) Catch Me If You Can
RTP was one of my fav's from that year as well. Was it nominated for anything? If not, I'm shocked.

I'll take Goodfellas and The Departed over Gangs of New York any day. Like I said in my first post of this thread, the movie just goes on too long and all the performances sucked, except for DDL.

And as much as DDL rocked in this movie, I'm glad he didn't win now because if he had won, he may not have won for There Will Be Blood and he was 10 times better in TWBB . . . if that's possible.
