Netflix swept up a record number of films from this year's Sundance Film Festival and is slated to release a shit-ton more over the coming months. Meaning, the streaming site will become even trickier to navigate than it is now, leaving so many killer films under the radar of subscribers. Including some noteworthy Oscar favorites.

Since the Academy Award for Best Picture was first given out in the 1920s, 88 films have gone home with the elusive title. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to which ones Netflix has sought to include for viewers to watch—and many have eluded the company—but, what's more important, there are seven available right this very moment. 

Click through the gallery below to see each of the Oscar-winning films Netflix has to offer. From epic biopics to fantasized dramas, each movie offers a different experience. If you're still desperate to get your hands on the rest of these films, have no fear. Nearly all of the Best Picture Award winners are available by way of Netflix's DVD renting option.
