The Academy Awards are this upcoming Sunday, February 26, and normally I would be super excited by now. However, after being given such a shitty list of nominations including many omissions I am not. I was thinking about the major categories and I just wanted to share my ideal Oscar list for what 2011 gave.
Should be - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (but it wasn't even nominated)
Will be - The Artist
Should be - Michael Shannon for Take Shelter (but he wasn't nominated)
Will be - George Clooney for The Descendents
Should be - Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Will be - Viola Davis for The Help
Best Supporting Actor:
Should be - Sir Ben Kingsley for Hugo (but he wasn't nominated)
Will be - Christopher Plummer for Beginners
Best Supporting Actress:
Should be - Melissa McCarthy for Bridesmaids
Will be - Octavia Spencer for The Help
Should be - Martin Scorsese for Hugo
Will be - Michel Hazanavicius for The Artist
Best Original Score:
Should be - Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (but they weren't nominated)
Will be - Ludovic Bource for The Artist
