I feel 74 wins in the 70s, considering you have:

Chinatown
GF II
The Conversation
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
Blazing Saddles
The Towering Inferno
The Parallax View
Murder On The Orient Express
The Gambler

76 was also an incredibly strong year with films like Network, Taxi Driver, The Outlaw Josey Whales, The Omen, All The President's Men, Rocky, ect.



For the 2000s, I say without question 2007. You have There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men in the same year, which IMO were the two best films of that decade.

In that year, you also have gems like:

The Assassination of Jesse James
Zodiac
Eastern Promises
Michael Clayton
Gone Baby Gone
Before The Devil Knows You're Dead
The Orphanage
Sunshine
Juno

An extremely robust year.



90s - I comfortably go with 95. You have gems like:

Se7en
Heat
The Usual Suspects
12 Monkeys
Leaving Las Vegas
Dead Man Walking
Casino
Braveheart
Devil in a Blue Dress
Crimson Tide
Toy Story
Friday
Higher Learning
To Die For

Superb year for film.

The Bank Dick (W. C. Fields)
Foreign Correspondent (Hitchcock)
Gaslight
Grapes of Wrath
The Great Dictator (Chaplin)
His Girl Friday (Hawkes)
The Philadelphia Story
