If Scrat Ran the Oscars: 2014 Edition

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…)

New on Blu-Ray 14.02

Well, it's been over a month.  Maybe I should post new movies...
