Top Ten Best Picture Oscar Winners

The Top Ten

1 The Godfather
2 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

lord of the rings should be higher in this list although godfather is also good

3 The Silence of the Lambs

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

4 Forrest Gump

"Magical. A beautiful fable of life viewed from the eyes of a innocent man"

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

5 Schindler's List

One of the toughest and most important movies ever made.

6 Gone with the Wind
7 The Godfather Part II

BEST MOVIE EVER - CedreticFomento

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.

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 Titanic

Just so that Incan be that guy

10 Casablanca

The Contenders

11 All Quiet on the Western Front
12 Annie Hall
13 The Bridge on the River Kwai
14 It Happened One Night
15 Lawrence of Arabia
16 The Departed

How is this 78? The Departed was an amazing film

17 Birdman
18 Gladiator
19 Braveheart
20 Chicago

Chicago pretty much gave birth to Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Mamma Mia!, Enchanted and Sunshine on Leith among others.

21 Spotlight
22 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.

23 Midnight Cowboy
24 The Sting
25 Platoon

There are so many I wanted to vote for, but for me, "Platoon" expresses a very deep and dark message that I really love.

Also, a pre-crack Charlie Sheen. - dureckl
