Fresh off of directing the first three Pirates of The Carribean films (nobody's perfect), Gore Verbinsky enlisted his pal Jonny Depp for this sharp animated western about a pet chameleon who finds himself stranded in the Mojave desert, which picked up the award for best animated feature in 2012.

A Beautiful Mind

If ever there was a film built to win an Oscar, or, ideally, an armful of them, it was Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind - a biopic which tracks brilliant mathematician John Nash's (Russell Crowe) struggles with paranoid schizophrenic disorder. It had the desired effect, winning best picture, best director and best adapted screenplay. Watch on Amazon


While Leo DiCaprio would have to wait another few years to bag his first statue, Christopher Nolan's dream invasion drama won big in the behind-the-scenes categories, taking home five awards in 2011 including best cinematography, best visual effects and best sound mixing. Watch on Netflix

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey star as a couple whose relationship goes sour, leading them both to undertake an experimental procedure to erase one another from memory. It's strikingly original: heartbreaking and romantic at turns. Deservedly took home the award for best original screenplay in 2005. Watch on Amazon


Training Day

Denzel Washington is at his brutal best here as a shady narcotics officer on an odyssey through the criminal underworld in Los Angeles. He won his second best actor Oscar - after 1989's Glory - at the ceremony in 2002. Watch on Amazon
