A complete list of all Oscar-winning movies, with every film that’s ever won and the number of Academy Awards that each picture took him. If a movie is on this list, then rest-assured, it is one of the best films ever made. Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognizes Hollywood filmmakers for various achievements within the industry. Some years, a small handful of highly-recognized films sweep a majority of the awards– think Titanic and The English Patient, but other years, the awards are spread out and several films win one or two Oscars in various categories. The number of Oscars that any given film wins has to do with how good the film is, but can also be determined by luck, release date, the mood of the Academy members, and the quality of the other films that were released that year.
This list of Academy Award winning movies is ordered by the number of statues each of these films brought home, so you can easily glance and see which films have won the most awards.

The awards are given to individuals for their various roles within the production of their films. Somebody involved in all these films won an Oscar. For people who worked on these award-winning movies, the recognition is a career changer, and for a movie it can mean a surge in additional profits at the box office.
