Valentine’s Day 2016: 9 Love Stories That Won Best Picture

Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs Best Picture

With it being Valentine’s Day weekend, and all the buzz of the Oscars coming up later this month, it seemed like a perfect time for a COMBO LIST! When most think of Best Picture winners, you think sprawling historical epics like Gone With the Wind (1939), Lawrence of Arabia (1962) or Ben Hur (1959). War is a good place to find Oscar champions as well, such as Patton (1970), Schindler’s List (1993), and Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). But what about love? What about a sweeping romance? With that idea, I’ve scoured the 87 winners of the Best Picture Oscar and found the nine best love stories. Why nine? Because ten is what you were expecting, and with love being the theme, love should be unexpected and spontaneous… and also I could only really think of these 9. Any of these movies would be great to pop open a bottle of wine, dim the lights, and cuddle up with your significant other.

Check out the 9 choices below.

Happy 57th Birthday To Tom Hanks!

Tom Hanks

A tip of the birthday hat goes to one of the biggest superstars to come out of the modern age of Hollywood, Tom Hanks, who not only is a supernova of a presence in many forms of mediums, but is also considered one of the great actors and comedians of that modern era as well.

Imbued with a kind of metaphorical force majeure, the widespread appeal of Tom Hanks stretches to all four corners of the globe. Even early in his career, as the sarcastic, Bill Murrayesque character (sometimes in drag) on the late 1970s-early 1980s sitcom, Bosom Buddies, there was an ease about Hanks; it seemed as if he’d been a star for years. He exuded a confidence and hilarity that made a role like the one he played in an early picture he was in – Ron Howard’s Splash – ebullient, effused with the Hanks chipper formula, and elevated that film’s character from what could have been a manifestation of milquetoast into an everyman that the audience cares about. It set the template for the Hanks’ character to come in countless cinematic vehicles that followed (Bachelor Party, The Money Pit, the hyper success Big, the obscure Volunteers, The Man With One Red Shoe, and The Burbs among many others).
