I managed to watch all of the Academy Award winners for Best Picture. Obviously this is one of those lists that I am going to have to maintain once a year – still, pretty cool to be able to have completed this!
Note: If there is no link that means I watched it before starting the blog proper.

As an extra, since 2015 I have been trying to watch all the Best Picture nominees before the ceremony. I have been blogging them as a weeklong block before the Oscars. So if you want to see my thoughts on the Oscar losers you’ve scrolled down to the right place.
