The Film Fan Perspective on 30 Years of Best Pictures

Film critic Sean Patrick just recently wrote a small piece ranking the past 29 Oscar winners after being inspired by 1984’s Best Picture winner Amadeus. I figured I should do the same, as my list is going to be more fan-based than critic-based, and I’ve even seen 26 of them. (Those with asterisks I have not seen) What do you think? What’s your favorite off this list, and what do you think should win this year’s Best Picture?
