If You Were an Oscar Voter, Who Would You Nominate?

By  · Published on December 27th, 2013

Oscar voting starts today and runs for two weeks wherein AMPAS members will nominate the movies that they think deserve gold. That’s people who yell, “Shame on you!” to Martin Scorsese and actively engaged industry members alike. More than 6,000 people all pushing cinema they love closer toward a democratic consensus on greatness.

In the real world the voting is compartmentalized (costume designers aren’t voting for sound design), but here in fantasyland, we can afford to run the gamut.

So if you were an omnipresent kind of Academy member, who would you submit for the honor? What cinematography took your breath away? What acting reached into your soul? What editing astounded you? What movie should we remember for years to come? Please share your nominees in the comments section.
