In all honesty, some of the finest films have won Oscars. Every year, Academy Awards, the star-studded celebration brings together the crème de la crème of Hollywood to honor their greatest achievements. It might be difficult to select the top Oscar-winning films, though.
How did we create this list? We selected our top picks from that list depending on which films took home the prestigious Best Picture award. The 5 best Oscar winner films that you must watch right now, are compiled here.
1. The Dark Knight
Heath Ledger deservedly won the prize for outstanding supporting actor in The Dark Knight, the Batman film that probably cemented Ledger’s role as the Joker.
The Dark Knight, a movie featuring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman and directed by Christopher Nolan, is considered as one of the finest films of the 2000s and one of the best Batman films.
2. King Richard
King Richard, an American biographical sports drama to be written and directed by Zach Baylin, to be released in 2023.The family resided in Compton as the movie starts, in the late 1980s to early 1990s.
While their father worked the night shift as a security officer, he ruled over his family with love, humor, and tenacity while Venus and Serena practiced on worn-out tennis courts. The script was written by Zach Baylin, who relied on experiences from coach Rick Macci’s books, Serena Williams’ books, and Richard Williams’ biography.
Oracene Price was also interviewed by Baylin and the creators.
3. The Departed (2006)
The finest movie directed by Martin Scorsese. A compelling tale of treachery and trust. Nobody can be relied upon. From the law enforcers who serve the interests of those who disobey the law to the thugs who covertly uphold it. The story that Scorsese has written is compelling and dramatic.
Leonardo DiCaprio keeps his sanity and his every move under wraps as the undercover officer within Costello’s (Jack Nicholson) kingdom of thugs and firearms.
When Matt Damon’s character, Sullivan, learns that Costello is also an FBI informant, he is incensed. Costello is informed of every move made by the FBI informant until he has had enough. The directing of this movie is superb, with unexpected energy surges, nearly dramatic situations with memorable phrases, and compelling nail-biting sequences.
4. Pirates of the Caribbeans
A fantastic beginning to a series! This movie is great thanks to its flawless editing, Mozart-like score, and superb cast, which includes Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow! Amazing moments were the Commodore letting Sparrow escape without a struggle, Elizabeth and Will’s peaceful love, and Barbosa’s demise.
A spontaneous pirate captain who stands up for what’s right, a couple who are in love secretly but openly, an interesting cast of characters, and a curse that needs to be broken in order for Sparrow to beat his foe are all included in this narrative.
5. Gladiator (2000)
This is a fantastic film with strong principles. Even though there is a lot of bloodshed and fighting, the film ends with a powerful message about glory, kindness, and dignity. Watching the gladiator fights is thrilling.
Although there is a lot of blood and heads are chopped off, it is still a terrific movie and might not be suitable for little children who can’t handle blood.
