89 Best Picture Academy Award winners. Votes came in thick and fast over the two month window. Bloggers, journalists, film critics, movie buffs, Oscarologists, et al. You all voted for your favorites, or what you considered the best, and the results are now here. A huge, huge thank you to all that got busy ticking boxes. There were no campaign ads or screeners here.
I will say many of these are ranked lower than perhaps they ought to be because, well, folk have just not seen some of the very oldest winners. That’s the way it crumbles, cookie-wise. Just look at the films that could have won each year. What a list that would have been. And there will be placings of movies that will be painful to see no doubt. The trick, is not minding that it hurts.
So, take a look at the results, all 89 Best Picture winners ranked from worst to best. Round up the usual suspects. Tell your friends. Share with your Oscar-mad peers. If you make it to the end, I guess you are the real winner. And please throw your comments below. Fasten your seat-belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.
