The big one! Vote on your favorite picture of the year out of these nine snubbed but deserving films.

This is it! We've finally reached the end of The Badass Digest Alternate Oscars, in which we offer totally imaginary awards to the films and people snubbed by the Academy this year. Thanks to you, the Badass Digest reader, we've honored the underdog in all of the least boring categories. 

Yesterday, we voted on Alternate Best Director. Our nominees: 

Alternate Best Director

Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, CLOUD ATLAS

Gareth Evans, THE RAID

Kathryn Bigelow, ZERO DARK THIRTY

Paul Thomas Anderson, THE MASTER

Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED

You kids voted via Facebook, and the winner of Alternate Best Director, by a margin of 23 votes, is Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained!

Exciting stuff, right? 

But we know why we're really here. The category we've all been waiting for, because we're opinionated and bossy and think we know better than everyone...

Alternate Best Picture:

THE AVENGERS

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

CLOUD ATLAS

HOLY MOTORS

LOOPER

THE MASTER

MOONRISE KINGDOM

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

THE RAID

So now it's up to you! Head to our Facebook page and vote on your favorite, and as always, let us know who we snubbed just as hard as the Academy this year in the comments below. Come back to BAD Sunday evening when we'll announce all of the Alternate Oscar winners and offer an open thread for Oscar cynicism or endorsement. But mostly cynicism, if we're being honest.
