I'd be surprised if LOTR doesn't get more than 75% of the votes.

By the way, wouldn't Birdman qualify?

I don't think people consider Birdman a fantasy film.

'Good idea for a poll. I never realized that there are a couple of fantasy films that have won Oscars. I will have to watch LOTR again to decide between them: it's been too long since I've seen it. 

May I suggest just a couple of small edits? (earn > earned; an oscar > Oscars)

They are the only fantasy films that have earned Oscars for 'Best Picture'. Which one is the best?
