Time heals all wounds. It also changes our perceptions of a movie. As the years pile up, some films just don't stand the test of time; others, like a fine wine or bourbon, age magnificently, allowing us to better appreciate its wares.

The Academy Awards, whose 83rd edition airs Sunday, is no exception. Time has cemented some of the Best Picture winners into an elite class of essential viewing, while some films haven't done so well. Those latter films we can often chalk up to a weak overall year for nominees or just plain stupidity by Academy voters.

After hours of deliberation, we've narrowed down what we think are the 10 worst Best Picture winners in the history of the Oscars.
