How Many Best Picture Winners Have YOU Seen?

So to save time and energy Screen Rant provides you with the much shortened version of the list, which makes it much easier to skim over and take in (thanks to www.tif.ro for the original short list, although we've shortened it even more).

My question for you, the welcomed and much loved Screen Rant reader, is how many of the Best Picture winners have you seen? This is all just a bit of fun but if you feel in the mood for a little list-motivated film discussion then tally up those which you have seen and post them (and any accompanying thoughts you may have) in the comments section.

Whatever you think of the validity of the Oscars (the film that wins the Best Picture category every year being one of the most debated topics each and every year) you have to admit that pretty much any of those films which have won the little gold man are at least worth a watch. You may think it didn't deserve to win and another should have won instead (which will always happen) but they are at least decent movies.

Looking at the list myself my final tally comes to 28 out of 81 movies and as a self-confessed film geek I consider that a bit of a disgrace (well, perhaps disgrace is a bit of a stong word but you get my drift). Like probably the large majority of you, most of the films I've seen have been the recent ones. The further back the years go the less and less I've seen (the earliest one I've seen is Rebecca from 1940), but I very much aim to change that...

So can anyone top a whopping 28 out of 81?
