Stream Guide–Best Picture Winners

I recently watched Argo, this year’s Academy Award winner for Best Picture, and I thought to myself, “This is good, but it won’t last.” I just don’t see a movie like Argo being remembered for years to come, especially compared to something like Lincoln. So I started looking back on previous Best Picture winners to see if they stood the test of time. I wanted to watch as many as I could for free so I started looking on my streaming services to see what was available. I’ll be honest–it took a while, but I got a list! And I’ve decided to share it with you. You’re very welcome.
