90% of all Best Picture winners are irredeemable tedious crap as far as I'm concerned. Chariots of Fire, Gandhi, Out of Africa and The English Patient in particular can be lost forever in a fire and I'm totally fine with that. Add all the films of the grossly overrated Vincente Minelli, while you're at it.
A touch on the extreme side, but thanks for reminding me that FROM HERE TO ETERNITY should be on my Colossal Bores list...
