And thus we continue our weekly tribute to being disagreeable, the Badass Digest Alternate Oscars. It's our chance to bestow accolades on those deserving but denied by the Academy this year, with YOUR help. Last week, we voted on the Alternate Best Supporting Actor and Actress.
Alternate Best Actor In A Supporting Role:
Javier Bardem, SKYFALL
Matthew McConaughey, MAGIC MIKE
Yayan Ruhian, THE RAID
James Spader, LINCOLN
Bruce Willis, MOONRISE KINGDOM
Alternate Best Actress In A Supporting Role:
Shanley Caswell, DETENTION
Ann Dowd, COMPLIANCE
Shirley MacLaine, BERNIE
Juno Temple, KILLER JOE
Emma Watson, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER
You guys voted via Facebook, and the people have spoken! Our Badass Digest Alternate Best Actor In A Supporting Role is...
Javier Bardem for his role as Silva in Skyfall! (Apparently some people were unable to see Bruce Willis' name in the poll for some technical reason, so who knows, maybe he would have won. These awards aren't real so I'm not going to sweat it.) Bardem won by a margin of 64 votes.
And Our Badass Digest Alternate Best Actress In A Supporting Role is...
Emma Watson for her role as Sam in The Perks of Being a Wallflower! Watson won by a skinny margin of only 9 votes.
Excellent job, friends. On to this week's category:
Alternate Best Original Score:
Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil, CLOUD ATLAS
Marc Streitenfeld, THE GREY
Jonny Greenwood, THE MASTER
Nathan Johnson, LOOPER
So those are our picks, as agreed upon by the Badass Digest staff. Now it's up to you to vote for your favorite! Head to our Facebook page and weigh in, and tune back in next week to find out who won and to vote on a brand new Alternate Oscars category. And be sure to speak up on whom you feel both the Academy and Badass Digest snubbed in the comments.
