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.

Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting

A collection of unexpected announcements for you this Monday afternoon, all coming from the same place.

The Weinstein Company’s Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein have reached a new muti-year deal with Miramax—the company the brothers founded in 1979 but departed in 2005 when they could not reach an agreement with then-owner Disney—Chairman Tom Barrack Jr. with plans to dust off some of the company’s classic titles and develop either sequels or TV series for them.

Right out of the gate, it’s being reported that sequels will now be developed for Best Picture Oscar winner Shakespeare in Love and poker drama Rounders, and that TV series based on Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting and Flirting With Disaster are in the works as well.

While discussing the London riots on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart and senior European correspondent John Oliver took a bit of a detour.

After mentioning how horrible the riots are and how bad European wars are in general, Oliver notes that some good has come of them as well, such as the various movies about them including Saving Private Ryan.

After declaring Ryan a Best Picture Oscar winner, Stewart corrects Oliver and informs him that Shakespeare In Love was in fact the winner that year. This hilariously sets off the two on a mini–tirade about the atrocity that not only the Saving Private Ryan upset was, but also the loss of Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas to Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves.

Check out the video below now.
