Here’s a gift for all my fellow movie lovers out there. I created a checklist for all Best Picture Oscar winners that you can download and use. It includes the formula for figuring out what percentage you’ve seen thus far of the 83 winners. (I’ve only seen 42 of them). There will be a new winner by Sunday night (most likely it will be The Artist but The Help and The Descendants have a slim chance of upsetting it).
Note: you can upload it to your Google Docs or use it in Excel for mac or windows.
