Normally, I would have posted this right after the actual ceremony, but well, I have a semblance of a life nowadays. Plus, part of me wanted to see a bunch of the nominated films before I just sit here and complain about why they won. For the record, I have yet to see
12 Years a
Slave, American Hustle,
Dallas Buyer’s Club, Frozen, Her, Philomena, The Wolf of Wall Street, August: Osage County, and Saving Mr. Banks, but I plan on it. If only to complain about them. Oh, and since this thing took forever to put together, I forwent the pictures.
As is a yearly tradition; here’s the way that I thought the Academy Awards should have gone. That is, if I were in charge of nominating/choosing. One day, when I’m ruler of the world, I will be.
As usual, I’ve left out a few categories like documentary and short film, but who really cares about those anyways? Again, this year, I’ve included a “My reasoning” section for each category – and don’t worry, not all of them are fawning over the films I felt were standouts. Again, this year is my “Prediction/Actual Winner/Should Have Won” section. “Should Have Won” only applies to films that were nominated and should have won but were not in my list. Oh, and I worked on the formatting and revised the “→←” to indicate which film I would have chosen. Enjoy! (After the break, of course…)
