With Argo seeming to sweep all the awards lately, and with eight other potential winners competing against Ben Affleck's drama in hot pursuit of Oscar gold, what better time for Warner Bros. to release a 20-movie set of their Best Picture winners? The release doesn't just dovetail nicely with awards season; it's also part of the studio's 90th anniversary celebration, which will include more 20-movie sets (one with musicals is next), a 50-movie set on Blu-ray and a monster 100-movie set on DVD throughout 2013. (For more, go to BestofWB.com and #bestofwb on Twitter.) Watch the trailer below....

I've got to say...Driving Miss Daisy.. is the best!
Got to go with Casablanca. Unforgiven is a close second.
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King is my favorite from that list.
Tough choice...but would have to go with Casablanca.
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" is the greatest film ever made! And boasts the greatest screen performance of all time too! It has been my absolute favorite movie for many years, with no exception. I have seen it so many times. A few times I've even started it over and watched it again right after it ended. It is the one movie that makes me recoil when someone tells me they've never seen it. Of course, I have to show it to them. I love being the one to introduce them to it. And nobody I've shown it too has ever been any less than blown away...because it's that good.
Gigi. It's a sweet and funny film.
It's a tie between Casablanca and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!!
Driving Miss Daisy
Ben Hur - nothing comes close to that grand epic.
My absolute favorite film is Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
We need more movies like 'Unforgiven' in my opinion :) Movies where great actors have great lines and the events are meaningful within the movie. SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!
My favorite movie is Gigi. Everyone should see this movie!
The Return of the King
One Flew Over the Cuckoos nest!!
My favorite is The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King! It's about time to sit down and do a Lord of the Rings marathon after seeing The Hobbit!
It's a tie between Lord of the Rings and The Departed.
Driving Miss Daisy or Ben-Hur!
One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest is my all time favorite!
Lord of the Rings!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
