Remarkable Behind-the-Scenes Stills from Oscars Best Picture Nominees

The Academy Award for Best Picture is certainly one of the top prestigious awards that a filmmaker can ever get in his or her entire career. Ever since it was first given in 1929, a total of 86 films have been given this award – a really huge honor, considering that this number is but a small part of the total 512 nominations.

In this feature: “Giant” (1956), “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969), “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951), “A Clockwork Orange” (1971), “Jaws” (1975), “Taxi Driver” (1976), “Apocalypse Now” (1979), and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981)!
