Sci-Fi doesn't get enough awards

25Groundhog Day

Its only nomination was Best Supporting Actor (Robert Forster). It should have been nominated for Best Actress (Pam Grier) and Best Adapted Screenplay. - BeatlesFan1964

27Warrior
28The Intouchables
29The Harry Potter Series
30Goodfellas

Lost to Dances with Wolves; so unfortunate

Joe Pesci won for Best Supporting Actor. - BeatlesFan1964

31Marvel's The Avengers

Should've won the visual effects award. - Lucasw14

32The Color Purple
33Magnolia

So Amazing. It was nominated for 3 oscars but didn't win any. It should have been at least nominated for Best Picture, but of course it wasn't. American Beauty won Best Picture that year, and in my opinion in was just as good.

34That Thing You Do!
35Reign Over Me

A man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief.

Director and writer: Mike Binder
Stars: Adam Sandler, Don Cheadle and Jada Pinkett Smith

36True Grit (2010)
37Boyz 'N The Hood
38Murder in the First

Acting was excellent from everyone, & yet not so much as a nomination! How sad.

3950/50
40Garden State

Not a dull moment in the film, Zach Braff in his only helmed picture characterizes the battles with self-worth all people in their twenties will endure through.
