The Aughts

The Aughts (2000's) are coming to the close. Why they're called the Aughts I may never know, but what I do know is this list I have compiled of the actors/actresses/films that represent the decade. Well, here it is:

The Actors (in no particular order)
Matt Damon
Leonardo DiCaprio
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Sean Penn
George Clooney

The Actresses (in no particular order)
Meryl Streep (uh, duh!)
Anne Hathaway
Renee Zellweger
Kate Winslet
Cate Blanchett

The Films (in no particular order)
Almost Famous
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Dark Knight
Moulin Rouge!
Mean Girls
The Hurt Locker

Your thoughts? Please share in the comments section!


  1. Meryl Streep probably represents the 80s, 90s and 00s.

  2. I think your actors and actress list is dead on --- while you movie choice --- I'm not so sure.

    Mean Girls? Really?

    I would include for decade defining films - Lord of the Rings, Million Dollar Baby, Shrek, Slumdog Millionaire, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Departed.

  3. RC: Well I'm 16 so I think Mean Girls perfectly represents high school right now. Not a big fan of Lord of the Rings, but I do agree with Shrek and the Bourne series.
