History is the judge and you make the history. 

Here's my personal ranking of all 86 and I've seen them all only because I've lived long enough to do so.  It takes years.

Note: because the first year they kind of had 2 BPs (Wings won the actual Oscar, but Sunrise got a special nod), I've included both. The top 20 or so are pretty solid, as are the bottom 20.  The rest are constantly in movement.
