The time has finally arrived. This Sunday, film fans across the nation will be tuning into the 85th Academy Awards to see who wins the best of the best — or to win that awesome office pool they contributed to. While people are preparing to party with their favorite cocktail and take a dig at host Seth MacFarlane (please be funny, sir), you can get a head start on the celebrations by checking out this Best Picture Oscar supercut.
Filmmaker Nelson Carvajal took the liberty of creating a four-minute video that collects every Oscar-winning feature film since William A. Wellman's Wings in 1927, to last year's winner: Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist. Oddly enough, both are silent films and the only two that won Oscars. Set to "November" by Max Richter, the clip is a moving and lively portrait of cinema that has us anxious for Sunday's reveal. What film will join the annals of Academy Awards history? We welcome a healthy debate about Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty in the comments.
