Do Comedies Win Oscars?

25 Feb

By: Open Book

There is nothing like a good comedy to help you forget about your troubles. It’s surprising how few comedies have won an Oscar for Best Picture in the last decade. In an effort to see what comedies have actually won an Oscar, required a little bit of digging.

Here we go!!

Academy Award Winning: Best Picture Comedies [1)

1999American Beauty

1998Shakespeare In Love

1994Forest Gump

1989Driving Miss Daisy

1977Annie Hall

1975One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest

1973The Sting

1964My Fair Lady

1963Tom Jones

1960The Apartment

1958GiGi

1957Around The World In Eighty Days

What is fascinating from this research? Over the last decade there’s not been one comedy to win an Oscar since 1999.[2] It seems ever since the recession fewer comedies are being produced in Hollywood.  Why is that?  Do people see fewer comedies when times are hard?  What are your favorite comedic films over the last decade (2000-2010) and why?
