11 Classic Oscar-Winning Movies to Watch with Your Kids

11 of 12
E.T. Extra Terrestrial movie

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 1982


This 1982 science-fiction classic bumped Star Wars from the top of the list of the highest grossing movies of all time and received nine Oscar nods. Audiences loved the powerful connection between a boy named Elliott and his out-of-this-world friend, E.T. Director Steven Spielberg said the film was inspired by an imaginary (alien) friend that he relied on as a child during his parents' divorce. Although the film lost the Oscar for Best Picture to Gandhi, it took home four Academy Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects.
