Every Best Picture Winner, Ever, in 8 Minutes

February's arrival means it's time for the 88th Academy Awards. And that means a new film will wear the crown of Best Picture, joining all the other incredible movies in the annals of Oscars history.

But before the speculation culminates in a glittering moment for the year's best piece of filmmaking, take a look back at the previous 87 winners -- encapsulated by each film's most iconic scene or line. While this YouTube video from Burger Fiction weighs in at a hefty 8 minutes, you won't be able to help but get goosebumps at least a few times.

And to be honest, it'll get you jonesing to re-watch one of your favorite movies -- or even watching one you've been meeting to view but just haven't gotten around to.

Now's a good time for it.
