It's awards season, and on Thursday we got the full list of nominees for the 2013 Academy Awards.

If playing catch-up with last year's nominees wasn't enough for you, we've compiled a list of every "Best Picture" winner since 1927.

The Oscar announcements got us thinking: There have been more than 80 "Best Picture" winners over the years, but which is your favorite?

Matt's pick was the 1970 classic "Patton," while Savannah's was 1984's "Amadeus." Al chose 1987's "In the Heat of the Night," Natalie 1943's "Casablanca," and Carson went with 1995's "Braveheart."

The TODAY anchors have let us in on their favorite flicks, but now we want to hear from you. Which "Best Picture" winner was your favorite? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter using #TODAYtbt, and don't forget to use the list as your guide!
