    If there were 10 Best Picture nominees between 1944 and 2008, what other 5 films do you think would make those lineups? Choose any year you want to cover. I have two that come to mind:

    1946: Anna and the King of Siam, Brief Encounter, The Killers, The Jolson Story and Notorious.

    1956: Anastasia, Baby Doll, Lust for Life, War and Peace, and Written on the Wind

    Crash

    Good Night, And Good Luck.

    Walk The Line

    – for me, this one is give or take with Cinderella Man… the only reason I’m leaning towards Syriana is due to the Oscar win it got for Clooney.

    The Wrestler should’ve at least gotten a screenplay nomination, and if course a nod for its title song.
