19 Best Picture Winners Streaming on Netflix: From 'Gentleman's Agreement' to 'The King's Speech'

The 87th Academy Award nominations won’t be announced until January 15th, 2015. That may seem far away, but Oscar season movies are already beginning to roll out, whetting our appetites for award speculations. In the meantime, you’ve got months to catch up on past Oscar-winning films.

You’ll see from the list below that the Academy Award-winning films of the 1990s are well represented, but the 1960s are entirely absent and aside from “The King’s Speech,” winners from the past decade are also missing. That said, there’s more than enough Oscar-winning films to choose from.
