BAM Awards: Best Picture Winners

 

Here is the first of a series of articles in which I hope to chronicle, once and for all, the winners of my own personal film awards, the BAM Awards. I may not be able to ever post everyone I ever nominated as my record keeping has been faulty and fragmentary but I hope I can at least try to re-post all my winners and give them their due.

I created the BAM Awards when I was 15 as a reaction to the fact that many films, performances and so on that I liked were overlooked by major awards. At the time I didn’t know of top 10 lists and the like so I went full boar and much further than most. Later I tried to retroactively create BAMs all the way back to 1981 and earlier, however, for now I will confine myself to the “Live Era,” wherein I chose my favorites at the end of every year so most, if not all lists will begin in 1996.

Without further ado, the best picture winners (sans commentary by me) in reverse chronological order:
