Reed's comment

I kept trying to find “Goodfellas,” “Chinatown,” and “The Pianist” in here, but of course they didn't win. “Chinatown,” well, it was a strong year and the movie that won is my #3, so I can't really complain. Still miffed about Art Carney, though. All in all, a better group of films than I had expected. Note - films seen too long ago to remember (“Kramer vs Kramer,” “Sound of Music,” “Ben-Hur,” “Chariots of Fire”) relegated to “unseen.”

Who's next?

Rank Oscar's best pictures from 1927 to today.
