Controversies, Omissions and Classics: Crash Go the Oscars 2005-2009

A lot has happened in the country since we taped this episode on Friday. It’s complete and ready, so we are posting it. Totally get it if you aren’t up to listening right now. It makes sense. But if you are looking for film talk, Carrie Chalmers joins us for the final five years of Best Picture nominees from the first decade of the 2000s. From controversial wins like Crash beating Brokeback Mountain to 2007, the year that gave us two modern classics, There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men, there is something for everyone to gripe or cheer in these five years.

Carrie, Teal and Jim offer up some of their picks for films that should have been nominated for Best Picture, but were left out of the mix. What are some of your favorite Oscar omissions from the period?
