Nelson Carvajal, who last year made a terrific video essay about There Will Be Blood and 2001, has crafted an elegant supercut of all the Best Picture winners in Oscar history, scored to “November” by Max Richter.
Carvajal refrained from labeling each clip (though a full list appears at the end of the video), so this supercut also works as a visual trivia game. Enjoy.
