Alternate Oscars: Best Picture and Director of 1950 (Re-Do)

I don't mind All About Eve winning your vote for best picture — it's my second favorite movie of 1950 and one of the best of the decade — but when it goes from thirty votes behind to twenty ahead in a single afternoon, something's up. Thus, the revote.

And while we're here, I'm taking the opportunity to re-think my nominees for best director.

Vote your conscience but remember to mind the proprieties at all times. No patty-fingers, if you please.

Note: My choices are noted with a ★. A tie is indicated with a ✪. Historical Oscar winners are noted with a ✔. Best foreign-language picture winners are noted with an ƒ. A historical winner who won in a different category is noted with a ✱.
