I just rewatched The Merry Gentleman, and old favorite of mine. It was my #3 and it's gonna drop a bit (there are some problems with the sideplots), but it's still a gently beautiful little movie and y'all should give it a shot. It's on Amazon Prime, and the two stars (Michael Keaton and a wonderful Kelly Macdonald) would at least be considered for awards in a perfect world. Also one of the best Christmas films ever.
Just don't watch the trailer, it spoils the entire movie.
Edit: And it's on Youtube! In 240p. Edit again: And it's ever so slightly sped up; it's around five minutes shorter than it should be, and the full credits are in there. Edit again: And it's dubbed into some other language. I reeeeeally oughta do some quality checks on this stuff.

I'm gonna need labels again. I recognize Watchmen and District 9. Is the top image The Road? And I assume the final one is Bad Lieutenant: PoCNO (because of Nic Cage and the whole thing just looking very Herzogy)

While we're on the subject of Coraline: Best picture, director(!!!), adapted screenplay, visual effects. Off the top of my head.
gonna have to re-watch this, often times my 15yo self is in the wrong
Honestly, it's dropped for me since I first saw it. It's episodic and messy, but the creepy vibe of everything being wrong makes it more frightening than most horror films. Looking at my ballot, it just misses my BP lineup, I'm afraid.
