43 Films You Didn't Know Won Oscars (Cnet)

When you think Oscars, you think heavyweight best picture fare like Casablanca, Schindler's List and 12 Years a Slave, with tearful actors accepting golden statuettes for their dramatic performances.
You probably don't think Spider-Man.
But in the 2022 Oscars, flicks like Spider-Man: No Way Home, Cruella, Free Guy, Shang-Chi and No Time to Die are proudly nominated alongside the prestigious dramas. Genre movies may not pick up the big awards but they're usually at the cutting edge of technical crafts like makeup, special effects and sound. So let's look back through the history of the Acadamy Awards and salute the films you might not expect to have won an Oscar.
