What's your favorite Oscar-winning film (by decade)?

spiced spiced 02/27/2013

Although it's debatable whether the Academy really picks the best film from each year for the Best Picture Oscar, without question A LOT of great films have won the award.

Which film is your favorite from each decade, and overall?

Silence of the Lambs is actually one of only half a dozen movies that I like better than the novel. And it's not that I didn't like the book, I just really thought that the movie was spectacular.

So true.

"The Academy" voters definitely use criteria other than film quality when they pick "Best Picture". I want to do a discussion on best film not to win the Oscar, but it's a HUGE task, because there are SO MANY great films that didn't get a statue.

I love this poll! I'm super obsessed with the Academy Awards and the Best Picture category in general.
I'm proud to say that I've seen at least one movie (often more) from each decade except the 20's, which will be remedied shortly.
My all time favorite Best Picture Winner?
A three way tie between Casablanca, Bridge Over the River Kwai and Lawrence of Arabia!

I'm glad you like it! I'm just semi-obsessed with movies in general. I've actually seen all but about 10 of the films. For me, it's a two-way tie between Gone With the Wind and Casablanca.

It's a tough one, but overall I'd say The Silence of the Lambs.
