ElM,

My first instinct is to exclude Slumdog Millionaire.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Slumdog
A slumdog is not an animal, but slang for:
A slum dweller.
A person who lives in a poor makeshift locality in extremely dirty conditions like a stray dog.
A person who lives in an overcrowded and poor area of a city in which the housing is unplanned.

Exactly and as you see, I didn't include it, I knew slumdog doesn't refer to an animal, it was just about theĀ  -dog, part..

... but then isn't also Birdman a stretch? And I should also exclude him?

If you include Birdman, then you probably should include Slumdog. Both are a stretch, but I could easily argue both ways.

I would take off Birdman for the same reason, or make a more extensive list with Animal-Titled Best Picture Nominees. My vote is for The Deer Hunter (1978).

I did that actually, I guess I'd rather have both kept away, so it can still work as a face-off.

Cool poll list, I am bit surprised that there were only 16 movies. As of 2018, there have been 546 nominees and 90 winners for the Oscar Best Picture award. I would have thought that the total would have been higher.
