Best Picture Oscar Winners – 1980s



Filed under : About.com, Decades

Gone were the days of directors ruling the roost; instead, actors began commanding obscene salaries per picture while behind the scenes agents and producers became obsessed with making high concept movies tailor-made to bring in $100 million at the box office. Despite the commercialization of the film industry and drive to make every movie a blockbuster, Hollywood still made richly compelling films that not only won Best Picture, but also stood up as compared to Oscar winners from previous eras.
