I get so excited over the Oscars nominations and the awards show like a fat kid loves cake. Honestly, I am like the Bruce Bogtrotter of the Awards show. I love hearing who is up for winning an Oscar and which films are the best of the bunch.
With the 2019 Oscar nominations have now been announced and I wanted to reminisce over the films who have previously won the prestigious title of Best Picture. I’ve been watching awards shows since I was a little girl and ventured back to films which won while I was still a child, dreaming of a career in the film industry.
It was pretty difficult to chop this list down to just 10 films and then rank my favourites. I’m still not 100% happy with the order but there’s too many variables to what makes a great film. Emotion. Story line. Acting. Direction. I could go on…
Here are my favourite films from all the years I’ve been alive to watch the Oscars! I couldn’t tell the time yet for one or two of these but I knew a decent film when I saw one. You can do it Brucey!
10. Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
9. Chicago (2002)
8. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
7. 12 Years a Slave (2013)
6. Spotlight (2015)
5. Titanic (1997)
4. The Departed (2006)
3. Braveheart (1995)
2. Gladiator (2000)
1. Forrest Gump (1994)
