Only a select number of films find themselves in the race to bag that all important Academy Award each year, and even fewer have the honour of walking home with one on the night of the actual ceremony. So, it often takes a special kind of movie, crammed full of rich detail, to come out on top.
Yet, with many fans focusing on which actors are giving career-best performances, if a particular song is about to become an Oscar winning sensation or how beautiful an odds on favourite's cinematography is, some subtle touches can often be overlooked when watching these soon-to-be classics in peak Oscar season.
Though some of the films on this list only recently came to life, other entries have been hovering around in the atmosphere for years and people have still yet to uncover some of the fantastic secrets hiding in plain sight.
Actors following their instincts, directors thinking outside of the box, and even completely unexpected appearances have all helped add more outstanding layers to these already impressive pieces of art.
Sure, they've earned a ton of praise and landed arguably the most prestigious award in the filmmaking industry already, but it's worth celebrating them one more time for containing these jaw-dropping details we completely missed first time round.
