The main purpose of this page is to examine ever single winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture from 1929 to present. I intend to do this in a year, starting January 1, 2017. There are 88 best picture winners as of 2016 and there will be 89 by the time of 2017. As such, I will wrap up this mission by looking at whatever wins  Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards. In addition to that, I will try to provide historical background and some details on the other nominees should it be necessary for comparison. I will also try to make blog posts about the film industry in general, should it please me. I hope to inform, educate and most importantly, entertain.
