I'd like to see some discussion about who everyone here thinks "shoulda been a contender" at this year's Oscars. Any ideas? Do you agree with the NY Times critics? Do you disagree?

Personally, I think Elvis Mitchell is spot-on with a lot of his choices. He didn't forget Intolerable Cruelty (which I think was one of the funniest movies of last year) or American Splendor (which is totally being snubbed in the acting races).

Thoughts?
