This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
These are the films that have won more than one best picture award, usually by winning Best Picture in its country of origin, then Best Foreign Film in another. For the sake of this list, I limited the list of recognized industry bodies to those from Australia, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, India, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. In the interest of including all continents, I have made two exceptions to the industry award rule for the Gramado & Ouagadougou Film Festivals.
I included award categories for feature-length animation, but omitted shorts and documentaries. I also included variations on Best Film and Best Foreign Film, such as BAFTA's Outstanding British Film, the Hong Kong award for Best Asian Film, and the Donatello for Best European Film.
All titles are sorted first by number of honors, then year of release. The leader (with 7) is Pedro Almodovar's "All About My Mother", which won the Goya for Best Film plus the Oscar, BAFTA, Cesar, Lola, Donatello, and Guldbagge awards for Best Foreign Film.
Las películas debían reunir al menos 2 de estos criterios :
- director español,
- actores principales españoles,
- idioma español,
- ambientación en España.
Por eso no están películas como "El cebo", "Campanadas a medianoche" o "Los otros". Está sin embargo "Un chien andalou", por su título, sus guionistas y su importancia. Entonces la lista tiene 51 películas.

Here is the list of the famous movies which people talk about the cinemagraphy of Spain and Latin American countries first. This list is a good reason to start learning and practicing Spanish.
While most of the films in this list have an awful reputation they are an excellent and often funny way to analyse the reactionary ideology, values and beliefs imposed during the Franco regime as well as the use of different film resources to make them look appealing to the audience. Conceived usually as a comedy, they were extremely popular in its time and even today they are regularly shown on Spanish TV channels. The book that presents this selection of films is part of a recent research project in sociology and ethics funded by the Spanish government.
From the book "Cine de barrio tardofranquista: reflejo de una sociedad" by Miguel Ángel Huerta Floriano and Ernesto Pérez Morán (eds.), Ed. Biblioteca Nueva, 2012. ISBN:978-84-9940-560-5. Films are listed in the same order they are presented in the book.
