Poll: Favorite Oscars Déjà Vu Best Picture Movie?

Movie-goers' déjà vu experience the past two years with Best Picture Oscar-nominated films Little Women (2019) and A Star Is Born (2018) has become an annual tradition. That tradition is likely to continue at The Oscars (2021) next year with West Side Story (2021). In-development Oscar-worthy déjà vu films, like Cleopatra (????) and My Fair Lady (????), potentially could keep that trend going in the future. Currently, the total sets of Best Picture nominated movies based on the same story stands at ten pairs. A notable mark for an award ceremony that for over ninety-two years has demonstrated an aversion to reboots, remakes and sequels.

Which of these Oscar nominees that trigger a déjà vu* feeling is your favorite Best Picture retelling?

*a feeling of having already seen the same story in a Best Picture nominee before (same story movie Best Picture sets based the on the same original source material or a revised version)
