Just configure different locations for urls you want to be cached 
and urls you don't want to.  E.g.

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://...

        # cache everything here
        proxy_cache blah;

    location /do-not-cache-here {
        proxy_pass http://...

See for details 
about locations.
