You should specify that it's about the Best Picture Oscar. And maybe list the other nominees so we can have a clue.

My vote would go for The Departed, and Scorsese is one of my favorite directors, but come on, let's call a spade a spade, it was a sympathy vote, nothing else. the film deserved a few nods for writing, editing, and maybe the Supporting acting, but as far as the thriller genre goes, it was no more transcendental than say a film like 1993 In the Line of Fire (which got these three Oscar nods, by the way and was much better) or even a classic like Lethal Weapon.

I look at the other nominees of 2006, and I see more deserving titles like Babel, Little Miss Sunshine or Letters from Iwo Jima, hell, I even see better and more daring pictures outside the Best Picture circle: Apocalypto, The Perfume, Pan's Labyrinth,  Stranger Than Fiction, Lives of Others, Children of Men... even Borat was more enjoyable.
