The Decade List: Awards (2007)

As usual, note that each of the award ceremonies tend to have their own regulations for what can be included and when, so there are plenty of discrepancies in regard to official release year, etc. Also, I had some difficulty finding the recipients of many of the national industry awards, so forgive me for leaving out some of the countries that were listed for 2006. Notice that this was one of the rare years where the Academy Awards seemed to have gotten everything (but the foreign language category) right.
