Best Picture Academy Award

AFI’s Top 25 movies of all time include only eight best picture winners.   The best year ever has to be 1962 with Lawrence of Arabia, The Longest Day, Mutiny on the Bounty, and To Kill a Mocking bird.  1994 has a good argument with Forest Gump, the Lion King, Shawshank Redemption, and Pulp Fiction.
