Movie-History Lesson: See Every Final Shot from All 86 Best Picture Winners in Oscar History

Movie-History Lesson: See Every Final Shot from All 86 Best Picture Winners in Oscar History

Mar 17, 2014

Oscar statueOscar season is officially over, and it’s a bit too early to start prognosticating about what might win next year. But if you’re yearning for more award-winning film footage, this cool new video should make you happy.

Website Devour has posted this five-minute clip, one that captures the final images of all 86 Best Picture winners in Oscar history. When we first read the premise, we thought it could be a bit of a disjointed mess – like the visual equivalent of 86 non sequiturs -- but our fears were unfounded. The imagery works surprisingly well together, thanks to some great editing.

The video runs the winners back in reverse chronological order, starting with this year’s champ, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave. Watching makes for a cool little game trying to guess which film is which based on the snippets of footage, and it may even inspire you to revisit (or see for the very first time) some of the winners of years past.

Given that the clip features final images, there’s the potential for a few spoilers -- so proceed with caution.
