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.
Here are the options.
Anna Karenina - 4 Oscar noms, 6 BAFTA noms
Moonrise Kingdom - PGA, GG, 1 Oscar nom
Skyfall - PGA, 5 Oscar noms, 8 BAFTA noms
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - SAG, GG,
The Master - 3 Oscar noms, 4 BAFTA noms
Flight - 2 Oscar noms
Previous results 2019 - Knives Out (22 votes). 2018 - If Beale Street Could Talk (18 votes) and Cold War (14 votes) 2017 - I, Tonya (20 votes) 2016 - Jackie (15 votes) 2015 - Carol (25 votes) and Inside Out (14 votes)

Flight honestly just based on its Original Screenplay nomination. Whereas The Master missed out on that, and Skyfall technically severely under-performed compared to its BAFTA haul (no nominations for Dench or Bardem).
