    So many, and screw the asinine “original” stipulation the Academy adopted, but off the top of my head:

    Fantasia
    Vertigo
    Lola
    Donkey Skin
    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
    Suspiria
    Matador
    In the Mood for Love
    Birth
    The New World
    Zero Dark Thirty
    Gone Girl
    Silence
    Her Smell

    Tenet, hands down, had one of the best scores in recent years. It should have won. The film itself should have done much better all overall as well.

    Film Scores I’m Shocked Were Snubbed:
    Laura (1944)
    Psycho (1960)
    Romeo and Juliet (1968)
    Once Upon a Time in the West (1969)
    Halloween (1978)
    Somewhere in Time (1980)
    Back to the Future (1985)
    Edward Scissorhands (1990)
    Hook (1991)
    The Piano (1993)
    Jurassic Park (1993)
    Amelie (2001)

    Scores that I Think May Have Had a Shot:
    The Ten Commandments (1956)
    The Great Escape (1963)
    Blade Runner (1982)
    The Terminator (1984)
    Cocoon (1985)
    Top Gun (1986)
    Beetlejuice (1988)
    Batman (1989)
    The Rocketeer (1991)
    Last of the Mohicans (1992)
    Requiem for a Dream (2000)
    Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
    Tron: Legacy (2010)

    Underappreciated Gems I Think Are Nomination-Worthy:
    Suspiria (1977)
    Conan the Barbarian (1982)
    The Neverending Story (1984)
    Return to Oz (1985)
    Peggy Sue Got Married (1986)
    Indecent Proposal (1993)
    Casper (1995)
    Powder (1995)
    Shrek (2001)
    Birth (2004)
    The Fountain (2006)
    Drive (2011)

    I would add The Godfather (1972) and Fargo (1996) to the first group, but the former was nominated but had its nomination rescinded because the theme was reused from one of the composer’s earlier films (Fortunella in 1958), and the latter was disqualified because the main theme is actually an instrumental version of a Norwegian folk song. Also 2010’s Black Swan could have been nominated, but the composer distorted and changed Tchaikovsky’s themes, so technically it wasn’t original.

    Halloween (1978)

    Jurassic Park (1993)

    Blade Runner (1982)

    The Terminator (1984)

    Top Gun (1986)

    Requiem for a Dream (2000)

    Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)

    All of them iconic. Oscars really missed the boat.

    Re: 3 Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Amen. Especially At World’s End. Should have won.
