Oscar-Winning Movies to Watch on Netflix: Shakespeare in Love
Shakespeare in Love is probably one of the best Oscar-winning movies, full stop … which makes it a natural choice for our list of Oscar-winning movies to watch on Netflix.
Shakespeare in Love achieves the remarkable feat of taking the same kind of witty humor and romance from Shakespeare’s plays (well, some of his plays — King Lear not so much) and infusing that into a story about his life. It’s charming, it’s funny and it’s all manner of entertaining.
The film took home seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay. Perhaps most impressively, Judi Dench won her Best Supporting Actress award in just eight minutes of screen time.
So if you’re looking for Oscar-winning movies to watch on Netflix before this year’s Academy Awards roll around, these three picks are sure to please.
