    Of that list, Pan’s Labyrinth and We Need to Talk about Kevin (loved that movie). Another movie that I would add is The Others (2001).

    Off the top of my head; Se7en (if that counts as one), Hereditary, mother!, and especially Alien should’ve been nominated for best picture.

    Scream should have been in the conversation for Screenplay. The suspense, the role of violence in the youth, the media, a kick-ass final girl and a whole reinvention of a genre… I mean

    The Exorcist should have been a glorious BP winner

    I don’t count suspense/thriller the same as horror. Horror usually (not always) has some sort of supernatural element to it that a regular thriller doesn’t. But of horror, The Exorcist would have been most likely followed by Get Out. Rosemary’s Baby would have made it in an expanded lineup. Scream would have been a great screenplay nominee. It would have knocked out Lone Star if the Academy had been so bold (the other 4 nominees were BP nominees). But you can also go back to the James Whale Frankenstein movies to look for nominees.

    House of Sand and Fog doesn’t really belong there but it absolutely should have been among the best picture nominees. Also don’t get how it didn’t make it into best adapted screenplay…
