Oscars 2017 Video Features Clips From All 88 Best Picture Winners

If you're eagerly anticipating this Sunday's Academy Awards, a new video will not only further build your excitement, but will give you a look at one of the biggest awards across cinema history.

A thirteen-minute supercut video recently posted by YouTuber BurgerFiction showcases every winner of the Best Picture Oscar, since the award was first introduced in 1927. If you want to learn more about the course of film history, BurgerFiction also has videos for the winners of Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, and Best Animated Feature.

While not every name on the list has stood the test of time, the video provides a captivating timeline of what was regarded as the best film at a particular time.

It will also help you get reacquainted with more recent (but forgotten about) winners, such as The Artist, The King's Speech, and even Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

The video ends with brief looks at the nine films up for this year's trophy. For the uninitiated, this year's nominees are Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, La La Land, Lion, Manchester by the Sea, and Moonlight.

La La Land currently leads the pack with 1/6 odds of taking home the big prize. With a record 14 nominations overall, it can be assumed that the film will take home several others as well.

But, as some of the nominees in this video show, Best Picture winners can often surprise you.

The 2017 Academy Awards will air live on ABC at 7 Eastern, 4 Pacific Sunday, February 26. If you're looking for comic book movies in the ceremony, you only need to see Makeup and Hairstyling (Suicide Squad) and Visual Effects (Doctor Strange). Some other genre films got nominations, at least.
