To keep the audience from turning in or switching the channel, the Oscars save the best for last. And on March 4, no doubt you will also stay up late to find out who won best actor, best actress, and, of course, best picture – the most prestigious prize at the Academy Awards.
Winning Best Picture is a career-making achievement that confers a special status on those involved in the making of the winning film. Of the thousands of movies ever made, only 89 have ever won Best Picture.
As the 90th Academy Awards approach, 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the best picture winners the year you were born.
