85th-academy-awards

In anticipation of the upcoming 85th Academy Awards, Sasha Stone, put together this wonderful montage, which features footage from all 84 past Best Picture winners. It’s a fine reminder that the best films never win as evidenced by the appearance of such movies as Crash and Shakespeare in Love.
