On episode 187 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, AwardsWatch Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by AwardsWatch contributors Sophia Ciminello, Dan Bayer, Zach Laws and Josh Parham conclude their tier ranking of the 95 Best Picture winners from the Academy Awards.
In the second part of the Best Picture tier rankings (listen to Part 1 here), the AW team start in the 1960s and go all the way to the most recent winners of Best Picture. This is where our hosts and audience are able to talk about the films they have most likely seen the most, and see the expansion of the limited “S tier,” where compromise and sacrifices of some member’s favorites are placed lower than you would be expected. But there are plenty of surprises amongst the team, leading to a fascinating final ranking of these 95 films. A truly fun exercise getting to talk about some of the best (and not so great) winners of all time.
