My favorite movie that didn't get any Oscar nods would be A Ghost Story. Considering that it was a) divisive, and b) it doesn't fit cleanly into most of the categories, I guess that's understandable though. You can consider that a FYC choice, but you don't have to include it. 

My runner-up would be Mother!, also an option understandably left off the list. Both this and A Ghost Story could have been good contenders for best Cinematography, but again they're hard to categorize.

So now I resort to my second runner-up, Brigsby Bear. Finally something on your list, so I guess that gets my vote. That'd be a decent contender for best screenplay I suppose.

Hi Sparse,

I have now applied a new parameter to construct the list.

Rated at least 6/10 stars on IMDb with above 60 Metascore.

You favorite films are on the list now.

Of these, I'd say 'Wind River,' which is on my top ten list for the year. I didn't see 'The Death of Stalin,' though. There were some great documentaries that weren't nominated but this is a really good list for the live action films.

Here's a list of the best Metacritic scores and, after quickly perusing the list, I think maybe the only live-action movies on this list that didn't get some nomination were 'God's Own Country' and 'Foxtrot.'
I may have missed one or two, though. You got all of the others, though, and of course these two films didn't get many IMDb votes because they had such limited releases.
