It's easy to fall behind on essential Oscars viewing. Especially in recent years -- with more awards contenders competing at more awards shows during busier and busier awards season -- the backlog of must-see movies can be downright overwhelming. Thankfully, there's a more manageable list only in retrospect: The Best Picture winners.
Below, ET is running down the past decade's worth of titles that took home the Academy's top honor, with handy links for easy streaming. A new title will soon join their ranks -- one of the eight films nominated for Best Picture at the 2021 Oscars -- which means there's no better time than now to get to bingeing. You don't want to be the only one who still hasn't seen Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), right?
2011: The King's Speech
Tom Hopper's King George VI biopic also won him Best Director, while writer David Seidler won Best Original Screenplay and Colin Firth took home his first Oscar for Best Actor.
2015: Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Alejandro G. Iñárritu's character study of a washed-up actor mounting a Broadway comeback also won him Best Director, as well as Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography for its seamlessly constructed one-shot.
Moonlight -- not La La Land -- infamously won Best Picture, along with Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali and Best Original Screenplay for director Barry Jenkins and co-writer Tarell Alvin McCraney.
This year's Best Picture winner will be chosen from these eight nominees: The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Mank, Minari, Nomadland, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal and The Trial of the Chicago 7. Many are currently streaming, while the rest are available on demand for convenient at-home viewing.
