Oscar for Best Film: Full List, 20 Best and 20 Worst

Some of the Best 'Oscar Best Picture' Winners


Year given is the year of release of the film. The actual ceremony of course takes place in the February or March of the following year.

Regarding the 20 Best and 20 Worst Lists, I can make a pretty good overall comparison: I’ve seen all the best picture winners apart from four of the very early ones:1928- Wings, 1929- The Broadway Melody, 1931- Cimarron, 1933- Cavalcade.

Still, it’s just my opinion: feel free to disagree! And while I do think most of the ’20 Worst’ are really bad films, a few of them (e.g. All the King's Men, Million Dollar Baby) I just think are over-rated.
