What is the best picture of the 80's?

We need your 80's insight again! Last month were the Academy Awards, with "Gladiator" winning Best Picture for 2000. So we had to find out from you what the best movie of the 80's is. On our Movies From the 80's page,we have over 650 movies. That's a lot. So we figured we'd list the ten Best Picture Oscar winners of the 80's AND the top ten grossing movies of the 80's, and ask you to decide which is the best.
