What Films Did The Academy Overlook

It's Kathryn here at Q. Call me crazy, or lazy, or a bad steward of popular culture, but I somehow managed to see a pathetic two of the ten Oscar nominees for Best Picture this year. And the ones I actually did see would have never made it on to the list had the little gold man not doubled the number of eligible nominees this year. I sobbed like a child throughout "Up", and was utterly transfixed by the prototypical Coen Bros "all humans are doomed and life means nothing" thematic of "A Serious Man". And I wish with all my little heart that they had a fighting chance at winning the statue. But let's face it, it's going to go to the buzz films: "Up in the Air", "Avatar" or "The Hurt Locker". I turn the floor to you. What films do you think were overlooked? Are there any nominations that disappointed you? Give us your thoughts.
