The 84th Academy Awards

2012 Oscars

Last week saw the announcement of the nominations for The 84th Academy Awards – or as most people know them, The Oscars.

Due to take place on the 26th of February, the nominations for this year’s event featured no real major surprises. The highly critically acclaimed films Hugo and The Artist, as expected, picked up the majority of the nominations. If you were looking for a shock, then it could be argued that the movie Drive starring Ryan Gosling deserved some recognition and that for the first time in long while a Disney/Pixar animation has not featured in the shortlist, but other than these everything was predominately as expected.

Here at base.com the mention of the Oscars always get’s the office reminiscing about previous Academy Award winning films. With so many great films in the last 83 years we have compiled a list of all our favourite winners that we recommend you see at least once. Check them out here
