Disclaimer: there are a lot that I haven't scene. Actually, every best picture winner that I have scene is on this list except Titanic. *My absolute favorites
  1. It Happened One Night (1934)
    Giphy
    Imitation of Life should have won though. Also, this movie is extremely misogynistic.
  2. Rebecca* (1940)
    Giphy
    So much yes. Possibly my favorite Hitchcock film. I'm not even upset that it beat The Philadelphia Story.
  3. The Lost Weekend (1945)
    Giphy
    Ray Milland.
  4. Hamlet (1948)
    Local
    I haven't seen the whole thing, but what I have seen was very atmospheric and I love it.
  5. All About Eve (1950)
    Giphy
    Bette Davis.
  6. Marty (1955)
    Local
    I love Ernest Borgnine in this.
  7. The Apartment* (1960)
    Giphy
    Sarcastic, cynical, and hopeful. Altogether perfect. Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine are the cutest couple.
  8. West Side Story (1960)
    Giphy
    The only thing that could make this better would be a Puerto Rican actress playing Maria. Or if it was just about Anita.
  9. The Sound of Music (1965)
    Giphy
    Julie Andrews. Christopher Plummer.
  10. The Sting (1973)
    Giphy
    To be honest, it could have been better, but Paul Newman and Robert Redford are in it, so it doesn't really matter.
  11. Ordinary People (1980)
    Local
    Donald Sutherland. Mary Tyler Moore. Judd Hirsch.
  12. Out of Africa* (1985)
    Local
    Meryl Streep and Robert Redford are as amazing as always. It has the most beautiful musical score I have ever heard.
  13. Forrest Gump (1994)
    Giphy
    I don't know how, but it manages to seamlessly put together what would usually be too many plot points to make a beautiful movie.
  14. Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
    Giphy
    So wonderful and colorful.
  15. The Artist* (2011)
    Giphy
    One of the best silent films ever made. The nightmare scene with sound is brilliant. Why aren't more people doing this?
