SPOILER ALERT: This article is aimed at readers who have already seen “The Shape of Water”. This year’s Academy Awards Best Picture was no different – though they at least got the name of the movie right, unlike in 2017. “The Shape of Water”, a fantasy romance by Guillermo del Toro, is 2018’s Best Picture.
When this year’s Oscar ceremony takes place on Feb. 28, it will mark the 88th year of the Academy Awards — meaning we have 87 Best Picture winners to dig into so far. That’s a big number, so to help you wrap your head around it, Yahoo Movies has compiled a video of clips from every Best Picture winner ever, beginning with the 1927 silent war film Wings and ending with last year’s Birdman. It’s a crash course in Oscar history and film trends, and clocks in under three minutes. Watch it above!
