Friday Five: Oscar Weekend

Welcome to the Friday Five blog post!  Each week I will choose one topic based on something I either heard or saw that interested me during the week and link to five articles related to that topic.  I hope you find them interesting as well!

This Sunday night is the 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony.  It will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and will air on ABC at 6:00 p.m. CST.  In honor of the Oscars, here are my five favorite Oscar winning Best Picture movies, along with links to the past winners in the major categories.
