Video digest: Oscar's 83 best pictures

May 13, 2011 |  2:00 pm

Jason O'Brien (OscarWorld) just updated his annual video homage to Oscar's best picture winners, which includes clips from all 83 recipients of the top Academy Award. As a musical underscore swells, the video groups the champs via categories like "Conflict and Tragedy" ("Ordinary People," "American Beauty," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"), "What We're Capable Of" ("The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire"), "Courage and Heroism" ("On the Waterfront," "A Man for All Seasons") and "Destroying One Another" ("Wings," "Mutiny on the Bounty," "All Quiet on the Western Front"). It's so well done that it even makes lousy Oscar choices like "Around the World in 80 Days" and "Braveheart" look good.
