Best Pictures: Four In A Row

I have now seen all five Best Picture nominees for 2007, including four in a row: Atonement, Michael Clayton, Juno, and There Will Be Blood. We saw No Country For Old Men back in November.

I have seen two Best Picture nominees in a row on nine occasions, but the topper of them all was November 2003, when I saw four Best Picture nominees in a row, albeit from three different years: The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), Mystic River, Master & Commander (both 2003), and West Side Story (1961).
