Oscars: Watch 84 best picture winners in four minutes -- VIDEO

Want to brush up on a bit of Oscar history ahead of the big night this weekend? With four days to go until the Academy crowns its 85th best picture winner, you can review the 84 that came before it in the video below, a montage of all the Oscar best picture winners created by Vimeo user Nelson Carvajal.

The montage features clips from such iconic cinematic moments as Scarlett O’Hara watching the flaming sunset over Tara in Gone with the Wind, the British Olympians running on the beach in Chariots of Fire, the Sharks dancing through the streets of New York City in West Side Story, and Jack and Rose bracing themselves as the Titanic sinks into the Atlantic in Titanic. At the end of the video, Carvajal also included clips from this year’s nine best picture nominees.

The music in the video is “November” by Max Richter, which was used in the trailers for J. Edgar and Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder.

The 85th Academy Awards will air on ABC Sunday, Feb. 24 at 4 p.m. PT/ 7p.m. ET.
