Let's go back and try to determine which films would have filled out the field of 10 Best Picture nominees. For years with 9 nominees, you can only select 1 option. For years with 5, you will be able to select 5 options. Some years will be more obvious than others and some will have more options. This isn't based on personal preferences. These are realistic options based on acclaim, precursor support and other Oscar nominations.
This year feels more obvious than most.
August: Osage County - 2 Oscar noms, SAG
Blue Jasmine - 3 Oscar noms, PGA, 3 BAFTA noms
The Butler - SAG
The Great Beauty - 1 Oscar nom
Inside Llewyn Davis - 2 Oscar noms, 3 BAFTA noms
Saving Mr. Banks - 1 Oscar nom, 5 BAFTA noms
