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 CABIN IN THE WOODS
THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER
For your reference, the real Oscar Best Picture Nominees are as follows: Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty.
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.
