2004: "Lord of the Rings" wins Best Picture

In what is so far the biggest win yet for geek culture at the Oscars, the conclusion to Peter Jackson's epic adaptation of Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy walked away with the Best Picture trophy. The Oscar was a terrific payoff for the hard work that Jackson and his crew put into the three films, which were all filmed consecutively without breaks. The three "Lord of the Rings" films have since become the most beloved trilogy of geeky films since the original "Star Wars" trilogy was in its heyday.
