Best Picture Winners – Watch them All

For this bucket list item, I want to watch all of the films that have won the “best picture” award at the Academy Awards (Oscars).

This is similar to the 100 best movies item, and i’m sure there will be some crossover between the lists, but not every Oscar winner made the top 100 and vice versa.
