Welcome to the 2018 Birth.Movies.Death Alternate Oscars! This is the second-annual edition of the awards, in which we, the staff of BMD, pick nominees from all the films the Oscars ignored, and you, the readers of BMD, vote on the winners. 2017 was a terrific year for cinema, and the so-called “official” Oscars have honoured a great bunch of films, but this is our chance - and your chance - to spread a little more love around.
Each week leading up to the Oscars, we’ll have a new set of categories and nominees for you to vote on, while revealing the winners from the previous week. This is your opportunity to recognise some of the best Oscar snubs around, so let’s get voting!
Strong bunch of winners last week. Mother!’s claustrophobic, metaphorical household won the award for Production Design; John Wick: Chapter 2’s stylish action took Best Editing; and Star Wars: The Last Jedi scored a win for Best Cinematography.
This week, we’re honouring 20 of the actors forgotten by Oscar this year..
Thanks for voting, everyone! Feel free to leave comments below about what you liked, what we left out and what you’d like to see in the upcoming categories. Meanwhile, we’ll be back next week with the winners of the above Alternate Oscars, as well as nominations in the Best Director and Screenplay categories.
