The Academy Award for Best Picture is one of the awards given to people working in the motion picture industry by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; the awards are voted on by other people within the industry. As is the customary practice in Wikipedia for listing Oscar results, the winner of the award for that year is listed first. The films below are listed with their production year, so for example the Oscar awarded in 2000 went to the Best Picture in 1999.
Each entry shows the title followed by the production company, and the producer. When the film was produced in a country other than the United States that is shown in parentheses after the production company.
This award was originally called Best Production.
Best Picture, Unique and Artistic Production also known as "Best Artistic Quality of Production" was only presented in the first year.
The name of the award becomes Best Picture
