Every Oscar Best Picture Winner Through 2015
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Hollywood

Just some quick thoughts:
It's amazing how much staying power black and white had.
I feel like the world has collectively forgotten about The Artist.
I'd be curious to see if there's if the relation between blockbuster success and awards has changed at all. Aside from movies like Titanic and Lord of the Rings, I feel like the very big movies tend to not get enough award attention. But maybe the reason I remember the older movies is because of their critical acclaim and not financial success, but certainly things like Gone With the Wind had both.
Godfather and Godfather 2 being the only original and sequel to win is a neat little trivia nugget.
As much as people complain about the Oscars, I really do appreciate their efforts to reward and immortalize pieces of our culture.
Look at this, Adam. In the Heat of the Night; 1967. Directed by Norman Jewison, produced by Walter Mirisch, screenplay by Stirling Silliphant. Won five Academy Awards, including the 1967 award for Best Picture.
Three names — no "in association with", no seemingly endless reel of opening credits.
That's pretty incredible in a 2016 context. That never happens these days.
