Unexpected Oscar NominationsGetty

Yesterday, we saw "The Lone Ranger" and "Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa" become inductees into the hallowed fraternity of Academy Awards nominees. Please note that "The Lone Ranger" is most famous for being the movie that Disney openly claims cost them almost $200 million and that "Bad Grandpa" could have also secured a Supporting Actor nomination for the prosthetic old-man body part that is frequently showcased (and ogled at) in the movie.

It got us thinking about other movies that time forgot but who can claim that honorary distinction -- movies you would never, ever imagine were actually nominated for an Academy Award (and what's more -- some of them won).

So take a drunken stumble down memory lane, because all of these movies were indeed nominated for Academy Awards, whether you wanted them to be or not.
