Best Picture Quizzes

It's always difficult choosing a Best Picture every year for the Academy Awards. Often the Best Pictures end up being the most popular, though this is not always the case. At Sporcle we try and make sure our Best Picture quizzes highlight both the popular and obscure. The best place to start here is with a list from 1970-2010, but any truly hardcore film buff isn't going to want to stop there. You'll want to name every single film that didn't quite make the cut in our Best Picture losers quiz. Or maybe those long, drawn out movies stuck in your mind, try our longest Best Picture trivia. Winners or not, if you're looking for a good film to watch, Sporcle's Best Picture trivia is just what you're looking for.
