The Oscar Quest Pages

Here you can find just about any information you can possibly need as it relates to The Oscar Quest (and its remains).

First, the big one:

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide

A guide with every nominee in every category, links to every article I’ve written, as well as a color-coded guide to my feelings about each film. If you want to know which films to watch, this is the guide for you.

And if you get overwhelmed easily (the guide is meant for a person to be able to go through in one go and not get caught up with all the repeat films), I’ve broken the guide down by category:

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Picture

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Actor

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Actress

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Supporting Actor

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Supporting Actress

The Oscar Quest: A Viewer’s Guide — Best Director

Here’s an article with all my rankings. The Viewer’s Guide deals primarily with how much I enjoyed the films from The Oscar Quest/how much I think you need to see them. This one is more about the categories themselves. It’s how I would rank all the nominees in every category. I did this at the bottom of the articles when I wrote them, but here, they’re all in one convenient location.

The Oscar Quest: Rankings

And, because I’m so damn nice, here are the rankings broken down by category.

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Picture

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Actor

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Actress

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Supporting Actor

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Supporting Actress

The Oscar Quest: Rankings — Best Director

Here are some articles of what I call the Abridged Oscar Quest, which is basically — without all the bullshit, taking into account what won before and what’s a “classy” choice, what I’d vote for in every category, based solely on the films nominated.

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Picture

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Actor

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Actress

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Supporting Actor

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Supporting Actress

The Abridged Oscar Quest: Best Director

Here’s a bunch of articles that are me attempting to see what I’d have nominated in certain years. Or maybe more appropriately — bridge the gap between some terrible Academy decisions and stuff that either I or most people feel would have made the categories better and creating categories that would have been ideal for everyone.

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Picture (1990-2011)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Picture (1970-1989)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Picture (1950-1969)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Picture (1927/28-1949)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Actor (1990-2011)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Actor (1970-1989)

The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Supporting Actor (1936-1949)

The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Supporting Actress (1990-2011)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Supporting Actress (1970-1989)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Supporting Actress (1950-1969)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Director (1950-1969)

— The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Director (1927/28-1949)

Here are articles discussing which films I had not seen before the Quest that I’m either really happy I saw or really hated having to watch (as well as the hidden gems of the bunch, according to me):

The Oscar Quest: Favorite Films I Discovered

The Oscar Quest: Worst Films I Had to Endure

The Oscar Quest: Criminally Underseen Films

And, for those who really like going balls deep into things, here are some more articles, which should be self-explanatory by the titles, analyzing certain things I thought were interesting to analyze:

The Oscar Quest: Me vs. The Academy

— The Oscar Quest: Facts, Trivia and other Miscellanea

If I Got to Change the Oscars…

Those three are the most important — an analysis of how I voted when I looked at all the categories, a bunch of odd facts trivia about the Oscars in general (trivia hounds will love that one), and then that great hypothetical of, “Well, if you could make changes to history, what would you change?”

These next ones are me dealing with specific categories, and ranking them. Ranking each of the winners against the other winners, and picking which ones I felt were the strongest and the weakest decisions of all time:

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Pictures

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Actors

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Actresses

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Supporting Actors

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Supporting Actresses

The Oscar Quest: Ranking the Best Directors

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Picture Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Picture Choices

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Actor Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Actor Choices

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Actress Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Actress Choices

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Supporting Actor Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Supporting Actor Choices

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Supporting Actress Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Supporting Actress Choices

The Oscar Quest: Best Best Director Choices

The Oscar Quest: Worst Best Director Choices

Next I took a look at the categories themselves. Putting aside what won, I looked at what I felt were the strongest and weakest years in each of the categories:

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Picture Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Picture Categories

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Actor Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Actor Categories

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Actress Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Actress Categories

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Supporting Actor Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Supporting Actor Categories

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Supporting Actress Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Supporting Actress Categories

The Oscar Quest: Strongest Best Director Categories

The Oscar Quest: Weakest Best Director Categories

Since I dealt with what won, next I dealt with what didn’t win, and listed what I felt were the best nominees over the years that didn’t win in their respective categories:

The Oscar Quest: Best Pictures That Didn’t Win Best Picture

The Oscar Quest: Best Actors Who Didn’t Win Best Actor

The Oscar Quest: Best Actresses Who Didn’t Win Best Actress

The Oscar Quest: Best Supporting Actors Who Didn’t Win Best Supporting Actor

The Oscar Quest: Best Supporting Actresses Who Didn’t Win Best Supporting Actress

The Oscar Quest: Best Directors Who Didn’t Win Best Director

That was all just The Quest itself. Just those big six categories. Since I finished the Quest, I slowly began venturing into some of the other categories (and still am, slowly but surely). So here’s where I’m going to put links to those articles:

— Best Original Song: A Categorical History (1934-1940)

— Best Original Song: A Categorical History (1931-1945)

— Best Original Song: A Categorical History (1946-1950)
