"District 9" released 2009

District 9, released August 14, 2009, was the first documentary-style movie to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.  It was also nominated for Oscars for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay, Best Achievement in Film Editing, and Best Achievement in Special Effects.

What I found amazing is Sharlto Copley wasn't an actor and did not want to pursue acting but he was given the lead role by the director after a short film where he was on camera.
