OSCARS: THE BEST PICTURE WINNERS OVER THE YEARS


As the excitement builds for the Academy Awards this Sunday, instead of going on about predicting who's going to take home the top prize, I want to take a look back to the glorious history of the Oscars and the coveted Best Picture.

There have been eighty-six films selected for this honor that range from epics ("Ben-Hur", "Lawrence of Arabia"), historical dramas ("Gandhi", "Schindler's List"), family dramas ("Ordinary People", "Krammer Vs. Krammer"), war ("Platoon", "The Deer Hunter"), comedies ("The Apartment", "Annie Hall"), musicals ("My Fair Lady", "Chicago"), westerns ("Dances With Wolves", "Unforgiven"), dark thrillers ("The Silence of The Lambs", "No Country For Old Men") and questionable merit ("Cimarron", "Around The World In Eighty Days"). I've seen fifty-one of these films. How many have you seen?
