Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents a golden statue to the film representing cinema’s best.
Every year, the Academy’s choice joins a list that includes undisputed classics (Casablanca, The Godfather), dubious selections (The Greatest Show on Earth), and many in between.
And every year, Rotten Tomatoes revisits every Best Picture winner of Oscars past, sorting them by the strict and rigorous standards of Tomatometer science.
How does this year?s winner, The Artist, stack up against the competition? How many of the Best Picture winners have you seen? Where do your favorites rank?
