Favourite All-Time Oscar Winners

Tonight is the ultimate night where by Hollywood glamour is thrust into the epicentre of limelight, celebrating the film achievements and creations throughout the past year – the Academy Awards. This extravaganza has ballooned in its significance and grandeur since its humble beginnings on May 16, 1929. Whether you agree or disagree with its relevance in the motion picture industry, the overall quality of films recognized by the Academy for nearly a century have been extraordinary.

The following include some of my favourite Oscar winners. It was very difficult to narrow down some choices to say the least. As spoken on the granddaddy of all classic film channels (Turner Classic Movies), “let’s movie!”
