15 Best Oscar Winning Movies

11. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

An amazing desert epic adventure that was far ahead of its time! David Lean won Best Director and it’s easy to see why with how masterful of a film he was able to create. While the movie was able to capture 7 Oscars, none were in the acting categories. However, that does not take away from the amazing performances of Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif. This is a film that needs to be seen in order to believe that it was released in 1962!
