With less than a week to go before the Oscars, you may still need to log a few hours at the multiplex (or, more likely, the art house) to cram for the big night. After all, when Reese Witherspoon picks up her Best Actress trophy, how can you shout, ”Felicity Huffman wuz robbed!” if you haven’t seen Huffman’s performance in Transamerica (pictured)?

To help you plan your last-minute moviegoing schedule, we’re reprinting the list of 25 movies you need to see by Oscar night that EW drew up a couple weeks before the nominations. As it turns out, we were overly optimistic about a couple of longshots near the bottom of the list. (Caché was ruled ineligible for foreign language film; Paradise Now should have been there instead. And I’m still disappointed that Upside of Anger and Shopgirl got ignored.)

Still, this is a list of great movies you should see anyway. In fact, I’m ashamed to admit there are a couple on the list I still haven’t seen, so if I duck out of the office for the rest of the afternoon to camp out at the theater, it’s all work-related, I swear.
