We're nearing the end of 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 Actor and Actress. Our nominees:

And our Badass Digest Alternate Best Actress, by a margin of 40 votes, is...

(Read the real Oscar nominees here.) 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 you only have one day to vote on these babies, because TOMORROW you can tune back in here to find out who won and to vote on the big one - Best Picture!
Sunday we'll announce all of the winners right before the real deal - albeit less fun - Oscars, and that post can also serve as an open thread for us to mock, talk, challenge and applaud all that fancy business.
And as always, don't forget to speak up on who both the Academy and Badass Digest snubbed in the comments.
