Films released by a Hollywood studio with a 4.0 rating or higher that never won an Oscar

Cross-checked with IMDB, this is every film I could find with an average rating of 4.0 and above that was released (or distributed if an overseas production) by either a major or independent Hollywood studio that did not receive an Academy Award.
