Which film with a 2007 US release do you think should have been nominated for Best Picture?
The nominees that year were:
No Country for Old Men (winner)
There Will Be BloodSeptember 1, 2014 at 2:59 pm #549328
I voted other because I don’t think there was really any film that was snubbed from a nomination. This was a pretty solid BP group and while some of the left out films were just as good none of them really stood out to me.September 1, 2014 at 3:32 pm #549329
Sweeney Todd should have slit Atonement’s slot. That movie was so dreadfulSeptember 1, 2014 at 4:09 pm #549330
Ratatouille replacing Atonement. That film was SO original my favorite of 2007 actully.September 21, 2014 at 12:51 pm #549331
Before the Devil Knows You’re DeadSeptember 21, 2014 at 9:41 pm #549332
The Bourne Ultimatum is the best action movie ever.September 21, 2014 at 9:46 pm #549333
Replace Atonement and Michael Clayton (both films I actually like quite a bit) with Sweeney Todd and Zodiac. Great year.September 22, 2014 at 7:42 am #549334
I gotta go with “Hot Fuzz”. Such a brilliant movie.September 24, 2014 at 6:59 am #549335
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly might not have been an essential BP nominee, it deserved a Best Director nod and maybe a victory. That movie could have been horribly paced and boring, but it was brilliantly directed and the pacing was flawless.

No, Zodiac? For shame, Dan!October 24, 2014 at 2:23 pm #549338
Drop Atonement and Juno, replace with La Vie en Rose and Ratatouille.October 24, 2014 at 2:38 pm #549339
As much I want Into the Wild, Sweeney Todd and Assassination of Jesse James to get nominated, I have to go with Ratatouille.
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)March 16, 2015 at 7:47 am #549340
Of this list, there are a couple of films I would’ve nominated personally but my favorite was The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
I also strongly ackowledge Ratatouille and found Sweeney Todd, The Bourne Ultimatum, Jesse James, and the not-metioned Once to be good contenders.
As great as Julie Christie was and as absolutely stunning as Marion Cottilard was, their films were rather messy.
My personal nominations would’ve been:
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
There Will Be Blood
