The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Picture

I got the idea for this shortly after all the articles went up. (You can find the articles here.) I was thinking — “What would it be like if circumstances didn’t matter? If I just voted based solely on the category and what was nominated?” Naturally that led to, “Well that can become a nice series of articles.” So that’s what they’re becoming.

I’m calling it my Abridged Oscar Quest. I’m going to go through every year of every category, and simply pick winners based solely on the category. I will not take into account what won before, what is the “classy choice,” what never had a shot. Just — here are the nominees, here’s what I would vote for if I had a ballot. I’m taking into account nothing but the films.

I’m going to star (*) the film I’d vote for.

We’ll start with Best Picture: (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “I got chills / They’re multiplyin’ / And I’m losin’ control / Cause the power / you’re supplyin’ / it’s electrifyin’! / You better shape up / Cause I need a man / And my heart is set on you / You better shape up / You better understand / To my heart I must be true / Nothin’ left, nothin’ left for me to do. / You’re the one that I want / You are the one I want / Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey / The one that I want / You are the one I want want / Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey. / The one that I want / You are the one I want want / ooh, ooh, ooh. / The one I need / Oh, yes indeed.” ♫
