The Oscars - a little late

Inspired by a post by both the Bigenarian Librarian and Misadventures of the Monster Librarian, I decided to go through the list of all the Oscar winners for Best Picture and see which ones I have watched. I'm also going to cross-reference them with The List of FMRNS, and see which ones I have seen only because of my friend A. The movies that were part of FMRNS will be highlighted in purple.

The Bigenarian Librarian and The Monster Librarian are both on a mission to see all of the Best Picture winners. I might join them on their quest!!
