The Apartment. My favourite Best Picture winner ever.March 24, 2021 at 6:55 am #1204154842
While there were maybe 2-3 other films that got snubbed that I loved a tad more, THE APARTMENT was such an amazing winner in its own right and was completely and utterly deserving. I actually have it ranked as my 5th favorite Best Picture winner of all time.
A close second would have to be LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.
After that, it becomes less appealing….
#2-Lawrence of Arabia
#3-The Sound of Music
#4-In The Heat of the Night
#5-A Man For All Seasons
#6-West Side Story
#8-My Fair Lady

The Apartment, West Side Story, and Lawrence of Arabia made for a nice string of winners, even if there are others I prefer. I’m also partial to A Man for All Seasons.March 24, 2021 at 9:29 am #1204155257
Midnight CowboyMarch 24, 2021 at 12:06 pm #1204155650
My favorite is definitely Midnight Cowboy.
Lawrence of Arabia is definitely the best.
Honorable Mention to The Apartment. Shirley MacLaine with an all-timer performance, one of the all-time Oscar travesties.March 24, 2021 at 6:50 pm #1204156598
Lawrence of ArabiaMarch 24, 2021 at 7:19 pm #1204156750
I voted for “The Sound of Music” though my favorite film was the not-nominated “Rosemary’s Baby”.March 24, 2021 at 8:32 pm #1204156917
Apartment, West side Story, and Lawrence of Arabia.
Wow 3 consecutive years and they are the best of the decade.

I’m going with Lawrence of Arabia. One of, if not the greatest epic ever made.March 24, 2021 at 8:46 pm #1204156936
No contest for me because West Side Story is not only my favorite Best Picture winner of the 1960s, but also one of my all time favorite movies. While I am curious to see what Steven Spielberg will do with his cinematic take on the musical, it will have to go a long way to be even as close as good to what Robert Wise (and Jerome Robbins) made in 1961 as it puts all modern day reimaginings of the Romeo & Juliet story to shame.March 26, 2021 at 4:55 am #1204159149
