In the spirit of March Madness, the Academy Awards launched their own competition at the beginning of the month. Fans were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite Best Picture winners and nominees, and the results were narrowed down from 16 winners and 16 nominees.

And the winner isThe Shawshank Redemption!

Fan favorites like Titanic, Beauty and the Beast, and Rain Man were eliminated in the first round, and Gone With the Wind never made it past the second. Forrest Gump and The Shawshank Redemption were actually nominated in the same year– Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction was at the time believed to be the fan favorite, but if the public had the choice, would this have been our winner?
