Who should win: toss-up between Scarlett Johansson for Her and Idina Menzel for Frozen.

The Academy sort of remedied this by opting to nominate literally 500 films Best Picture, allowing for a few comedies to sneak it, but the Golden Globes got it right in having a separate category for Comedy.

4. Winner: The Heat.

20th Century Fox

Who doesn’t want to live in a world where every Step Up movie wins an Oscar?

6. Winner: toss-up between James Wan for Fast & Furious 6 and Samir and Arsh Tanna for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela

Universal Pictures

Here’s an idea: the statue for this category could be a miniature. Aww.

9. Winner: Lil Bub (obvi) for Lil Bub and Friendz.


The Academy needs to quit stuntin’ and recognize how hard stunt actors work.

11. Winner: Zoë for Iron Man 3.

Sometimes the opening credits are the best part of a movie (and the category was actually proposed officially in 1999).

13. Winner: toss-up between Alexis Beaumont and Michel Pecqueur for La Vraie Vie Des Profs and Aaron Becker for The Conjuring.

There’s an Oscar for Best Score, but isn’t it about time we start treating mix tapes with the respect they deserve?

16. Winner: Baz Luhrmann for The Great Gatsby.

The Screen Actors Guild honors ensemble casts, so why not the Academy? Sometimes the sum is greater than the parts.

18. Winner: everyone (but mostly Meryl Streep) for August: Osage County.

Smokehouse Pictures

It seems a little unfair to hold kids to the acting standards of adults, so why not make it a separate category?

20. Winner: Onata Aprile for What Maisie Knew.


21. Honorable mention: Mana Ashida for Pacific Rim.

Legendary/Warner Bros.


23. Winner: Tilda Fucking Swinton, because she’s an alien goddess from outer space who sleeps in glass boxes.
