Best Picture Journey

I’ve read a couple lists from my blogging friends such as “Top Ten DiCaprio Movies” or “Ten Movies I Need to See” and have loved reading them. Yet, as many movies as I’ve watched, there are still so many that I haven’t seen, leaving my tastes somewhat limited. Something I want to do to fix that is watch all of the films that have won Best Picture. Below is my journey to do so. The ones I’ve seen get scratched off and I’ll link to reviews. You’ll probably have to go to the 70’s before you find any marked though. So far, I’ve seen 14 of 86. The journey has just begun.

UPDATE: I’ve decided to include nominees as well to give myself a more thorough look at the best the year had to offer. Winners are bolded.
