Here’s Everything That Should Be Winning An Oscar This Year—But Won’t

    Think of this as the alt-Oscars

    by · March 01, 2018

    It wouldn’t be Oscar season without a dash of nomination controversy, but this year’s debate has been fairly subdued. Yes, the Best Picture and Director categories are still dominated by (mainly white) men and some critics have questioned Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’s seven noms in light of its prickly racial politics, but there’s been nothing as contentious as last year’s Best Picture snubs for Jackie and Silence, or Jacob Tremblay’s absence from the Best Supporting Actor list in 2016. That being said, the Academy never gets it completely right, and an extra-strong field of candidates this year has left a wealth of excellent films and actors shut out from the major categories. In an ideal world, this alternative selection would have made the cut.
