2008 Alternate Oscars

My choices are noted with a ★. Historical Oscar winners are noted with a ✔. Best animated feature winners are noted with an @.

In retrospect, the failure to nominate The Dark Knight for best picture helped open what is now a yawning chasm between the Academy and the ticket-buying public, where every year the top prize goes to some grim little art film nobody has seen and then the powers-that-be scratch their collective heads and wonder why no one watches the Oscars anymore.

Sometimes the answer is so obvious you only have to look in the mirror to find it.
