    Which film with a 1995 US release do you think should have been nominated for Best Picture?

    The nominees that year were:
    Apollo 13
    Babe
    Braveheart
     (won)
    Il Postino (The Postman)
    Sense and Sensibility

    A good list of non-nominees that could lift up a weak list of nominees. 12 Monkeys, Before Sunrise, Casino, Heat, Se7en, Toy Story could all be there but my vote goes to The Usual Suspects. Just a fantastic film.

    Toy Story. More people talk about it than Babe today

    Toy Story was my favourite film of 1995. It definitely should have been nominated.

    1995 still remains one of the most bizarre years in recent memory with the way Apollo 13 and Sense & Sensibility seemed the most poised to win only to crash and burn with Directing snubs and then you threw in a small family film about a pig that was completely different from any film nominated in…well….pretty much ever.

    Braveheart was horrible. I hated it so much and the fact that it won was a huge mistake.

    Il Postino was a good film. It could use a rewatch but I don’t remember thinking I would personally nominate it.

    Of the nominees, the only one that would even make my lineup is Sense & Sensibility and perhaps even Babe as well.

    My vote among this list goes to: THE USUAL SUSPECTS…..not only was it snubbed but it was my favorite film from that year so therefore it should’ve WON.

    My personal nominees would’ve been:

    Before Sunrise
    Sense & Sensibility
    To Die For (the random selection, but I loved this film!)
    Toy Story 
    The Usual Suspects 

    I hated 12 Monkeys and wasn’t wild enough about Heat to personally nominate it but Casino and Seven and the already nominated Babe (just putting this movie in the same sentence as Casino and Seven still seems humorous) are so close to taking out some of the others I listed.
