    With the Oscars turning 90 this year, I thought I’d start a thread asking you all one question. Throughout all 10 decades the Academy Awards have been presented at this point, what would you say are your favorite Best Picture winners from each decade (so far)?

    These lists can change as we see more Best Picture winners in our lives. I haven’t seen any of the winners from the 1920’s yet, but here is my current list nonetheless:

    1930’s: Gone with the Wind
    1940’s: Casablanca
    1950’s: On the Waterfront
    1960’s: West Side Story
    1970’s: The Godfather
    1980’s: Terms of Endearment
    1990’s: Schindler’s List
    2000’s: A Beautiful Mind
    2010’s: 12 Years a Slave
