The grandfather of the movie awards, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) bestows this award in the form of 'The Oscar'®. This most coveted and prestigious award is the most commonly mentioned on movie posters. Even the nominations for an "Oscar" are normally proclaimed. This annual award is given for the previous year, for example, the 2004 awards are given out for films released in 2003.

To honor the films that have earned the most coveted of these awards, we have assembled the largest selection of images of "Best Picture" movie posters from around the world ever presented. Simply click on the title and you will be taken into the Movie Poster Data Base to see the selection of posters for that title.
