Have you ever wanted to just sit down and watch every single movie that's ever won the Academy Award for Best Picture? Well, now you can ... in a considerably abbreviated sense, anyway.
Digital filmmaker Nelson Carvajal has created the ultimate checklist for your Netflix queue with this elegant supercut that journeys through the history of the Oscars via every consecutive Best Picture winner, from William A. Wellman's "Wings" in 1927 to Michel Hazanavicius' "The Artist" in 2012 (being bookended by two silent black and white movies makes this montage all the classier). What better way to prepare for Sunday's 85th Annual Academy Awards than by reviewing the 84 incarnations that have come before it?
And the thanks goes to The Playlist for the find.
