2001: 'A Beautiful Mind'
We told you Russell Crowe was on the rise, because he starred in yet another Best Picture winner just the following year. A Beautiful Mind follows mathematician John Nash during the onset of paranoid schizophrenia, and how it affects his wife and those around him. Though filmmakers have stated the movie is not meant to be a completely accurate telling of his story, many have criticized the film for missing key parts of Nash's life. A Beautiful Mind won four Academy Awards.
