The Oscars is designed to award the best movies from a given year, but we all know that can be a tricky proposition. Sometimes, they hit the nail on the head, but other times, their choices can feel a little bit out of step. At times, though, the Oscars get more flack than they deserve. Most of the movies that win Best Picture are pretty good, and many of them are better than that.
The movies on this list all won Best Picture, but they don’t have the reputation as definitive winners that something like The Godfather might. These movies are great, but they’re ones that you may not have seen or heard of already. Hopefully, this list will change that.
