The Best Picture Oscar award winners for the 90s was a diverse group of movies. I have watched all but two of these past Oscar Winners for Best Picture. I can't say that I'm disappointed in any of these Oscar award winners. There were some upsets in this bunch of past Oscar winners. I tend to agree that although the Oscar award winners for this decade were excellent, some of them should not have been Oscar award winners for Best Picture of the year.

Favorite Best Picture Oscar Winner from the 90s

It would be easy for me to pick the best movie from the 90s Oscar winners. That is because my favorite movie of all time is on this group of Oscar winners for Best Picture- Forrest Gump.

If I had to pick a replacement, it would be Schindler's List. The two Best Picture Oscar winners that I haven't watched are Shakespeare in Love and The English Patient. Am I missing anything? Which movie on this Best Picture winners list would you consider to be the best movie for the decade?

Schindler's List is matchless and uncomparable masterpiece of hollywood. followed by Dances with Wolves, The English Patient, Titanic and American Beauty. If you haven't watched The English Patient, you've missed a masterpiece by Anthony Minghella, it sure sweepa you away.

I have always been irritated that Shakespeare in Love won instead of Saving Private Ryan.

1994 was an amazing year for movies with Forrest Gump, The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. All were deserving of a Best Picture Award.
