Academy Award Best Picture Ranking: List

I’ll be updating this list with each post that goes up so eventually it will have all 90 films. Working my way back has proven interesting so far and it’ll be even more so as I go further back and have to weigh up timeless classics like Casablanca and compare them with more modern classics like Birdman.

When I was working on my Disney ranking, it became apparent quickly that the list would have been better on a separate post which I did publish at the end.

Here is the ranking so far:

20) Crash (2004)

19) Green Book (2018)

18) Gladiator (2000)

17) Spotlight (2015)

16) Argo (2012)

15) Chicago (2002)

14) The King’s Speech (2010)

13) A Beautiful Mind (2001)

12) The Artist (2011)

11) Million Dollar Baby (2004)
