Best Picture Oscar Winners Project

I’ve been working on my IMDb Top 250 Challenge since 2013 & only have 34 movies left to watch for that project. So I figured it was time to also start a Best Picture Project.

I’ve seen 62 of the Best Picture Oscar Winners so far (which I ranked a couple of days ago HERE). I have 31 left to watch. I’ve also reviewed quite a few, especially the most recent movies, so I’ve included the links below.

Out of all the Best Animated Feature Winners, there are only two I’ve not seen. So I will try to watch these as well:
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Rango

And of all the Best International Feature Winners, I’ve seen 11. I don’t plan to watch all of those I’ve not seen but do at least want to watch these for now (and two are in the IMDb Top 250):
•La Strada
•8 1/2
Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow
Fanny And Alexander
Amour

So far this year, I’ve watched & reviewed one Best Picture Winner:
It Happened One Night

    • Thanks! 🙂 I’m sure I can get Rango off the list some weekend, especially as I think it’s on one of the services. That’s the biggest issue – actually finding these to watch without paying out extra to see them. So I’ll try to watch any that show up on streaming services.
