In 2003, William James Murray (better known to those who haven't spent hours reading his Wikipedia page as Bill Murray) starred in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," a poignant, somber romantic comedy that spotlighted the budding relationship between an aging film star (Murray) and the lonely wife of a photographer (Scarlett Johansson) in Tokyo. Murray was nominated for an Oscar for said performance, but he ultimately lost to Sean Penn's turn in "Mystic River."
At one point, he also did the Garfield movies.
But herein lies the massive injustice. Bill Murray should have been nominated for an Academy Award for every other movie he's done. There. We said it. The following is a comprehensive list of Murray movies where the Academy unconscionably overlooked his performance, starting from the very beginning of his illustrious career.
Role: Tripper Harrison

I'm going to make a confession now, and I understand that more than a few of you may not be amused in the least (so to speak) - I have never found The Farrelly Brothers funny, except for when I was 11 and we watched Osmosis Jones in Biology class. In fact, I did not even crack a single smile when watching There's Something About Mary. But because of my eternal fascination with the mythology of The Devil I can't help but be at least somewhat interested in their latest acquisition, an »

Walt Disney and Pixar Studios pulled the curtain back on three upcoming films at CinemaCon 2012. We got release dates, directors and producer teams as well as one-sentence descriptions from Disney. Without knowing anything more, we give our ideas as far as what we can expect based on who’s involved and the established track record of the wonderful world of Pixar. We know that they’ll be all-ages films, we know they’ll be full of heart, imagination, and complete characters. Parents of infants and toddlers, take note: get ready to be inundated with dinosaurs, aztecs, and the inner workings of… the brain?
The Good Dinosaur
U.S. Release Date: May 30, 2014
Official description: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?
BuzzFocus Take: Dinosaurs. »

With a stretch of movies starting with Osmosis Jones in 2001, all the way to Hall Pass just last year, the recent "comedies" of brothers Peter & Bobby Farrelly between there have included Shallow Hal, Stuck on You, Fever Pitch and The Heartbreak Kid. It's not exactly an Uwe Boll worthy line-up of films, but these are easily some of the worst comedies of their given years of release. Taking that into account, you'd think the Farrelly Brothers were just hacks who can't seem to do anything but inexplicably fit Richard Jenkins into most of their films. But there was a time when the sibling duo actually used to make very funny movies. In "honor" of The Three Stooges, which currently sits with a low 43% on Rotten Tomatoes, I'd like to look back at the 8-year run of four films that gave Bobby and Peter Farrelly the career that they »
