Oscars 2020: Definitely not the Best Picture of 2019

All 44 films with at least one Oscar nomination, but not a Best Picture nomination, for the 92nd Academy Awards (09 Feb 2020). Nominated categories in notes.

I traditionally watch the nominees for Best Picture every year; this list is to help me focus on the “lesser” films. My tally on the morning of the nominations was a paltry two films watched (4%). (One is a Marvel movie and the other is a Star Wars movie and oh, the shame, the shame.)
