Welcome to the 2019 Birth.Movies.Death Alternate Oscars! We’re now in the third annual incarnation of this new tradition, in which the BMD staff pick nominees from the films Oscar ignored, and readers vote for the winners. There are plenty of good films nominated in the “real” Oscars, but this is our chance - and yours - to give some lovin’ to the films that were too small, too weird, or too badass for the Academy to recognise.
We’ll have a new set of nominees up every Wednesday, leading up to the Academy Awards ceremony itself, and each week we’ll reveal the winners from the previous salvo of categories. So place your votes, and may the best movies win.
This week, we’re looking at the bits of movies that go into your ears: Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Sound Editing and Mixing. For the sake of sharing the love, we didn’t nominate any movies for both Sound Editing and Mixing. Have a look and cast your votes:
Thanks for voting! We’ll be back next week with the nominees for Alternate Best Visual Effects, Costume Design, Makeup & Hairstyling, and Production Design. Feel free to praise your choices - or grouse about what even we left out - in the comments below.
