It's the Oscars!

The Oscars are tonight! After weeks of buildup, speculation, and the most use of the word "Argo" on record, the Academy will reveal the results of the most prestigious and contentious film awards ceremony at 8pm in the Dolby Theatre. We're very excited in Media Services, if you couldn't tell from our weeks of Academy Award-related posts.

Naturally, many of the films nominated for awards are still in theaters, so we can't really advertise them in our collection. But now is as good of a time as any to look back at big winners from previous years. Our Pinterest page has a list of all the Best Picture winners in our collection, with only a few missing (some of the older winners have not been released on DVD). Everyone's immediately familiar with The Artist and Slumdog Millionaire given their recent wins, but have you seen The Sting or Midnight Cowboy lately?

We'll be around all evening. If you don't feel like watching the ceremony or need to detox from the awards season, come grab one of the 82 winners in our collection. (Or 83 if Argo wins!)
