Usually the film with the most nominations get the Oscar for Best Picture, but there are times when things don't work this way.

Which of these movies that got more Oscar nominations than their competitors and didn't win the Best Picture award should have won?

I'm not sure it's that usual, there were many 'upsetting' or odd-beating Best Picture winners over the years, sometimes, it's not even the movie that won the most Oscars that end up with the Best Picture:https://www.imdb.com/list/ls059065062/

I am sorry my friend, but your corrections are not applicable. 2018 winner is Shape of Water with 13 nominations. Spotlight is a movie of 2015. Avatar has 9 nominations just like Hurt Locker. Chicago has 13 nominations and the Pianist only seven. Shakespear in Love has 13 nominations and Saving Private Ryan has only 11. The films you suggest dosen't belong in the list.

I think you are still missing a lot, though.

The Aviator, Benjamin Button, Dreamgirls ...

That's ok. It wasn't really clear, if only nominations count or oscars, too.
Lalaland = 6 Oscars, Moonlight = 3 Oscars
You know what I meant? But anyway - ok! :D

So I did some research.

Lincoln had more nominations than Life of Pi
Reds had more than Raiders of the Lost Ark
Julia AND The Turning Point had more nominations than Star Wars
Giant had more nominations than The King and I
A Streetcar Named Desire had more nominations than A Place in the Sun

(Some people may think that Raiders or Star Wars should have won, but if you want to list the films with the most nominations, they aren't the ones.)

Network and Rocky had the same number of nominations

Also, other titles that appear to be eligible:

The Revenant
American Hustle
Bugsy
The Elephant Man
Raging Bull
Anne of the Thousand Days
Bonnie and Clyde
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Mary Poppins
Sayonara
A Streetcar Named Desire
A Place in the Sun
Johnny Belinda
The Bells of St. Mary's
Sergeant York
One Night of Love
Arrowsmith
The Champ
The Love Parade

Unfortunately that makes more than 35 entries, so you can choose how many you want to include.

Paok,

There are clearly more films with large number of Oscar nominations than you could include in your poll suggestion. I recommend that you set a minimum number of Academy Award (Oscar) nominations, a minimum number of votes or a minimum rating.

Likewise, Roma (2018) and  The Favourite (2018) both received 10 Oscar nominations. Only one of these films can win the best picture Oscar; it's possible that neither will.

Paok,

Ten Oscar nominations is probably a good minimum, since there are currently 24 that meet that threshold. Nine Oscar nominations may include more than 35 choices.
