15 Best Oscar Winning Movies

9. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)

Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy was as ground breaking as it was epic; especially the extended versions. The three films act more as a single story than three separate entities. The Return of the King won 11 Oscars, each that it was nominated for, with Jackson taking home Best Director as well. While it was the only movie in the trilogy to capture Best Picture (each was nominated), the victory was well deserved.



The epic adventure was able to complete the plot lines for a number of captivating characters that have riveted viewers since the films release. The use of technology to make for dramatic battle scenes set the stage for fantasy battles for years to come. Return of the King is possibly the best work Peter Jackson has done!
