Doubt has been nominated for Best Picture, but I think the ending disqualifies it. Major spoilers below the cut, so if you have not seen the movie, do not
All through the movie, Meryl Streep's character, Sister Aloysius Beauvier, is strong, confident, and hides her emotions. Several times she shows she is a caring person, but she does it without any public display of emotion. In the final scene she breaks down and cries, saying "I have doubts".
I have no problem with her saying she has doubts, her character is drawn as human and the preponderance of evidence in the last 3 minutes of the film has swung against her. But her character was also drawn to state her doubts in a matter of fact manner, sans leaky eyes.
But this is a very YMMV movie, so a poll:
Should Sister Aloysius Beauvier cry at the end of the film?
Is Amy Adams too cute to play a nun?
Do you think Alice Drummond (Sister Veronica) was robbed (should have been nominated for Supporting Actress)?
