“Slumdog Millionaire” edged out “No Country for Old Men” when the two Academy Award winning pictures went head-to-head in the first round of ABC News’ Oscar Bracket Challenge.
Only 48 votes separated the two films after the first round of votes were tabulated in our contest to find the best Oscar-winning movie in the past 64 years of Academy Award history.
That means “Slumdog,” which earned 3,058 votes over the 3010 for “No Country,” moves on to the next round of voting, which opens Feb. 9.
Joining the film will be last year’s best picture winner “Argo,” “The Kings Speech,” “Titanic,” the first two “Godfather” films, “Lawrence of Arabia,” “All the King’s Men” and more. In total, 32 films will move on to the second round.
After six rounds of voting, a winner for the best Oscar-winning film will be declared later this month.
But it’s up to you to decide which best picture winner should earn the crown by taking the Oscar Bracket Challenge.
