The Hurt Locker set the decade off with the first (and only) film directed by a woman to win best picture (director Kathryn Bigelow won the best director honor as well) and honored producer Dede Gardner as the only woman to win the best picture honor twice (12 Years a Slave, Moonlight). Stories based on true events and historical narratives dominated the wins of the decade with movies such as Hurt Locker, The King's Speech, Argo, 12 Years a Slave, Spotlight and Green Book, but were contrasted with whimsical films such as The Artist, Guillermo del Toro's fantasy romance The Shape of Water, Alejandro Iñárritu's dark comedy/drama Birdman and Barry Jenkins' coming-of-age tale Moonlight.
