Slumdog Millionaire took home eight Oscars at last night’s Academy Awards, including Best Picture. But how does Danny Boyle’s film fare against all the Best Pictures in Oscar history?

Pretty well, actually. With its 94 percent Tomatometer (and within our Bayesian formula), Slumdog is the 31st best-reviewed Best Picture of all time; it’s a notch below My Fair Lady and three slots behind last year’s victor No Country for Old Men but ahead of such noteworthy recent winners as The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (at number 32), The Departed (number 34) and Million Dollar Baby (number 40).


Click here for the complete list, and take a stroll through Oscar history; we’ve compiled every winner from Wings to Slumdog. Where do your favorites rank? Check out Best of the Best Pictures to find out!
