Best Oscar Winning Movies Ever

Everyone knows that the Oscars is the annual  Academy Awards ceremony to celebrate the best movies of the year. The top movies that I have included in this list have all won an Oscar for best picture and in my opinion were very deserved indeed. Here are my top best Oscar winning movies ever.

Forrest Gump:

 

Forrest Gump is one of the most epic movies of our time and it’s undoubtedly a timeless classic. Starring Tom Hanks as the slow witted main character the movie has everything you could ever want from a truly brilliant movie. It’s no wonder that the movie won an Oscar in 1995 as did Tom Hanks for best performance.

The Silence Of The Lambs:

This movie is a horror classic, it starred Anthony Hopkins as the violent cannibal Hanibal Lecter. This movie will go down in history as one of the greats.  The movie got it well deserved Oscar in 1992.

Rocky:

One of the best feel good movies of all time, in my opinion, is Rocky. The movie constantly had me on the edge of my seat rooting for Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) to knock his opponents out. The movie also had one hell of an amazing soundtrack too. The movie got its Oscar back in 1977.

Titanic:

Back when Leonardo DiCaprio was super hot and a super amazing actor. In Titanic, Leonardo played Jack Dawson the lower class boat passenger who won the heart of the upper-class girl, Rose played by Kate Winslet. We all know that the story was based on the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 right? well if you didn’t you know now. The movie was amazing in every way and left many people heartbroken to see Jack sink to the bottom of the ocean.  The movie received its award in 1998… god that seems so long ago… I feel old now.

As Good As It Gets:

This movie never gets old and every time I watch it I still laugh along. Starring Jack Nicholson as Melvin, the OCD writer who is mean to everyone he meets. Melvin soon softens though when it comes to looking after his neighbor’s dog. The movie won its Oscar in 1998.

So what do you think of my top Oscar winning movies? What would be in your top 5?
