Top Ten Best Picture Oscar Winners


The Top Ten

1 The Godfather
2 The Silence of the Lambs

Remarkable plot and acting is my second favorite movie of all time.

3 Schindler's List

One of the toughest and most important movies ever made.

4 The Godfather Part II

Fantastic movie! I think the top 5 should be Silence of the Lambs, Godfather, this, Forest Gump, and Titanic or One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest.

5 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

First time a Fantasy movie is winner for Best Picture, It was the Best Picture because as a trilogy the movie is universal - MatrixGuy

I know a fair few people who hate on this amazing trilogy. I loved it to bits and am so glad that a movie of such genre could win so many oscars.

I'm glad lord of the rings number one. in my opinion return of the king is the best movie EVER

Incredible movie, it deserved it - PeeledBanana

My Mama always said life is like a box of chocolates - Thecyanryan

7 Gone with the Wind
8 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

This is Most likely the best movie that was ever made. It aged well, and there is not a boring sequence in the film. - Beatlesboy9

9 All Quiet on the Western Front
10 Casablanca

The Contenders

11 No Country for Old Men

This movie is one of the Coen's best, and they won a good 3 Oscars for it (each). Also, Javier Bardem's Oscar winning performance is truly amazing. He's just so scary.
