The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Color Purple
42 Magnolia

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.

43 That Thing You Do!
44 Reign 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

45 True Grit (2010)
46 Boyz 'N The Hood

Definitely. Fantastic film, and John Singleton's screenplay & direction is superb, and demonstrates more skill and maturity at the young age of 23 than most directors do at twice his age. - Mrveteran

47 Murder in the First

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

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.

50 Shutter Island
51 Drive
52 9
53 Chaplin
54 Tropic Thunder

It was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. - BeatlesFan1964
