The 25 greatest Oscar best picture winners, ranked (from 'Parasite' to 'The Godfather')

Brian Truitt

For film fans, choosing from the history of Oscar best picture winners offers a cornucopia of delicacies.

Like any buffet, there are some things you might want to avoid: "Crash" and "The Broadway Melody" are akin to some sketchy veggies that don't look entirely pleasing. Still, with 92 mostly splendid dishes served, there's bound to be some stuff you can dig into, from classic musicals ("My Fair Lady" and "Gigi") and war epics ("The Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Platoon") to Southern-fried charms ("Gone with the Wind," naturally) and strange tastes ("The Silence of the Lambs").

15. 'West Side Story' (1961)
Get past the finger-snapping 1950s dance warfare of the Jets and the Sharks and you'll be all in for the wondrous Romeo-and-Juliet love story of Tony (Richard Beymer) and Maria (Natalie Wood) powered by phenomenal songs and a fiery Rita Moreno.
