The 84th Academy Awards – Revised

Another year of Oscars, another year I disagree.

Best Picture: The Artist.  The What?!
What I would have chosen: Drive

Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
Who I would have chosen: Nicolas Winding Refn, Drive

Best Actress: Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Who I would have chosen: Carey Mulligan, Drive

Best Actor: Jean Dujardin, The Artist
Who I would have chosen: Ryan Gosling, Drive.  Not even a nomination, what a travesty!

Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, The Help
Who I would have chosen: I won’t dispute this one.  Drive didn’t really allot enough time for a supporting actress.

Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer, Beginners. 
Who I would have chosen: Albert Brooks, Drive

Best Adapted Screenplay: Alexander Payne, Jim Rash and Nat Faxon, The Descendants
Who I would have chosen: Hossein Amini, Drive
Amini far right

Best Sound Editing: Philip Stockton and Eugene Gearty, Hugo
Who I would have chosen: Lon Bender and Victor Ray Ennis, Drive.  The only nomination it actually received.

Best Costume Design: Mark Bridges, The Artist
Who I would have chosen: Erin Benach, Drive.  That scorpion jacket!  So cool! 

Oh well, maybe they'll ask my opinion next year : ) 


  1. That jacket is very cool. You have raised my interest in Drive I shall watch it.

  2. I'm sensing some sort of pattern, but I can't place my finger on it.

  3. Guess I should put Drive in my netflix queue.

  4. Drive was the shit, capthca sux so hard

  5. i am the only one on the planet that hasn't seen a movie this year that wasn't in red box.
    I get so disappointed every time I go, it is just not worth the $. actually we did see Mighty Macs..but it cost $75 for all of us was still a very good movie!

    1. yeah, the prices are crazy these days. and $75 for a night at the movies is just insane.

  6. Hello! Interesting blog! Thank you very much for visit!
