Here's some Sunday fun for you—this five-minute video collects a snippet from the final scene of every "Best Picture" Oscar-winning film, edited by Monté Patterson. They're presented in reverse order, so you can quiz yourself as you go along. I have to admit, I missed a bunch of these (though I did recognize the still I showed above—just watched it last weekend!). Here's the video, and below is the list of the films.
