Every time the Academy Awards roll around, I can't help thinking about all the films, actors, and actresses who were more deserving of taking home the Oscar--in my humble opinion--than the ones who actually did. It seems the winners are often not chosen on merit, but on popularity and trendiness. A lot like the cool kids in high school. Then there are the aggressive studio advertising and lobbying campaigns. It's hard to take it seriously anymore.
But as a film fan, I had fun putting together this list of who would have won and lost if I were the Academy. Maybe you'll agree with some but not others. Enjoy!
