Which film sequel was the first to win Best Picture?
We all got used to the fact that originals are almost always better than sequels. Well, are they?
The Godfather Part II is a cult crime film produced and directed by F. F. Coppola. Most critics consider it one of the greatest films in American film history.
Note from history: This film became the first sequel to have won Best Picture. The Godfather Dilogy remain the only original/sequel combination to both win Best Picture. Along with The Lord of the Rings, The Godfather Trilogy shares the distinction that all of its installments were nominated for Best Picture.
