Another year has gone by. It is that time ladies and gentlemen to reveal to winners of the people and pictures that should have been nominated for Oscars. (Side note: There were a number of people who voted for people or pictures that were nominated for Oscars. It’s not the point of the awards. This is for the ones left out of the running.)

  1. A strong list of winners. I have a feeling this mightn’t be Nolan’s last appearance at this ceremony either…The Academy really seem to have it out for that guy

    • Personally, I disagree with some of the winners, but the people have spoken. Nolan was nominated for Screenplay and Picture. I think they have a bias against his direction. Hmm…
