Only the Best #2: The Other Best Picture Winners of 1927/1928

It's the newest podcast from the creators of Critically Acclaimed and Canceled Too Soon! Only the Best reviews every single Oscar-nominated Best Picture, in order, year by year.

You've heard the pilot episode, which covered all the Best Picture nominees from the first-ever Academy Awards. In the second installment, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review all the other nominees for Best Picture at the first annual Oscars, the only year in history where the category was split into two.

The nominees include "Chang: A Drama of the Wilderness" (a hunting documentary from the future directors of "King Kong"), "The Crowd" (King Vidor's experimental drama about the plight of the everyman), and "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" (F.W. Murnua's expressionist allegory about the beauty and danger at the heart of a marriage).

Only the Best is a Patreon-exclusive podcast, but you can listen right now if you sign up for the $10 tier (or higher)! You'll also get a lot of exclusive bonus content, and the power to assign articles to William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold, for publication right here at!

Want to try it out? The first episode aired (under a slightly different title) as a part of Canceled Too Soon. Give it a listen!
