    Which film with a 2006 US release do you think should have been nominated for Best Picture?

    The nominees that year were:
    Babel
    The Departed
     (winner)
    Letters from Iwo Jima
    Little Miss Sunshine
    The Queen

    Pan’s Labyrinth was one of that decade’s greatest achievements. The best film of 2006.

    I would say 2006 is contention for being the strongest year for film in the rather mixed decade that the 2000s were.

    Of the actual nominees, I loated Babel with a passion and also didn’t think The Departed was anything spectacular. At the time, I was just thrilled to see Scorsese win that I didn’t care.

    Letters From Iwa Jima was a very strong war film; Little Miss Sunshine had most people split down the middle whether they loved or hated it but I loved it; and The Queen had its detractors for being too simple and like a BBC Tv Movie but I actually really loved it as well.

    For the snubs:
    Pan’s Labyrinth was robbed majorly. It was easily the best movie of that year with United 93 being close behind.

    The Lives of Others, Notes on a Scandal, and Children of Men were all really good.

    Other films not listed here that I found to be worthy for consideration were Borat, Thank You For Smoking, and The Devil Wears Prada.

    As it stands my vote goes to Pan’s Labyrinth with United 93 as close a runner up as you can get.

    2006 was a very good year for cinema. I went with Children of Men, but it pains me not to pick The Prestige, Pan’s Labyrinth or most of the others on this poll. Thank You For Smoking is also my favourite comedy from the past 10 years. I also like most of the existing lineup too, making it even harder.
