    This thread is to discuss holiday movies that are underrated or Oscar worthy. Movies that are iconic and stand the test of time but maybe weren’t as well received in the beginning or deserved awards attention, but didn’t due to its genre.

    “All Alone at Christmas” from “Home Alone – Lost In New York” should’ve been a contender for best song imo

    Love Actually should have gotten a nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

    Elf should’ve had a couple noms.

    The movie should have been nominated over Seabiscuit or Mystic River.
    Will Ferrel over Jude Law in Cold Mountain
    And honestly I think it should’ve won original screenplay, though I do also love Lost in Translation which did win.

    The musical score in “The Holiday” and “Elf” deserved at least a nomination.

    Mo’Nique was Oscar-worthy in “Almost Christmas.”

    I mean if Melissa McCarthy could get in for bridesmaids then Chevy Chase probably deserved some sort of recognition for his performance
