Oscars, now and then

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that it will nominate 10 films for Best Picture next year. It has been speculated that this decision was due to lack of nominations for movies that don't fit the stereotype. Hopefully, this will open the field to more "unusual" nominees (which, ironically, might mean some more mainstream movies).

So, this got me thinking: what are some movies I wish had been nominated in past years?
Tropic Thunder Find it in the catalog!
Bourne Ultimatum
Find it in the catalog!
Rescue Dawn Find it in the catalog!
Best in Show Find it in the catalog!

Give us your list-- what do you wish had been nominated? Are there any films so far this year that should be nominated?
