    Ok, so since 2009, The Academy are changing the voting for the Best Picture Award to 10 Nominees. Then, for the last two years they made it UP to 10 Nominees. And in both years there were 9.

    So, what movies do you think would have gotten the 5% #1 votes since 2005?

    My list is coming shortly.

    I think that's a reasonable list. I don't think Doubt was vulnerable at all considering its strengths in the acting fields. Four acting nominations and a screenplay nomination and no Best Picture nomination seems like an aberration.

    I'd also suggest adding Little Children to 2006's extended list. Given that I don't think there are any heavyweights there, I think 5% would have been an easier threshold to reach.

    I agree with most of your list, but I think that American Gangster would have been more vulnerable than Sweeney Todd. Also, I think Ratatouille would have been nominated as well.
