A Look at History

I wanted to take a quick look at history to compare Slumdog's run to the other Best Picture since 1993. I also included Brokeback since it was actually the most awarded film next to Schindler's List and Slumdog. Other years (i.e. 1995 and 2004) where Braveheart and Million Dollar didn't win much was very spread out, so I declined to add another film for that year.

I only included major awards from the critics and guilds. Then, I also put in the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Oscar. If I were to include multiple critics groups and the lesser known guilds, then Slumdog's line would be much longer than everyone else's.

Let's take a look.
