The annual Academy Awards ceremony brings the world together in celebration of the best films of the year, and this list of all the movies that have won the Best Picture Academy Award is here in celebration of decades of quality filmmaking.

With nearly 86 years of votable film history behind us, there are plenty of classic movies vying for the honor of being called the greatest film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture. From the movies that win critical acclaim across generational divides (The Godfather, Schindler's List), to the feel-good movies with great casts (Forrest Gump, The Artist), to controversial Best Picture Oscar winners (The Hurt Locker, Crash), this list of the films that won a Best Picture Oscar is here to separate the best movies of all time from the ones that were maybe the best of the year they won.

Vote on these winners of the Best Picture Academy Award and maybe you'll find out! If there's an Oscar winner for Best Picture that you didn't like, vote it down and let other moviegoers know it wasn't worthy of film's top honor.
