Romantic Oscar Winners

15 May posted the following staff picked list yesterday “just in time for the release of ‘Letters to Juliet’—the  Top 20 most romantic movies.” Though my desire to see Letters to Juliet is only lukewarm (despite having been to Verona, where Juliet’s balcony is!), I decided to peruse the list to see if any of these romantic movies are on my to-be watched list!

Out of the 20, 5 Best Picture winners made the list. From 2008 to 1939, I think all these all these movies are good picks.  They are as follows:

# 16: Slumdog Millionaire

# 13: Shakespeare in Love

# 10: Gone with the Wind

# 7: Titanic

# 5: Casablanca

Other movies on the list that I loved were Love Actually at # 9, The Notebook at #3 and The Princess Bride rounding out the list at # 1.

Do you agree with the list?  The full post can be seen here:
