Re: Alternate Universe Oscars for Best Picture

I already posted a list of all my Oscar picks going back to 1927 in an older thread in the forum, which I'm not going to repost in its entirety here, but going back to 1990:

2013 - 12 Years a Slave (Oscar) - Steve McQueen
2014 - Boyhood (nom) - Richard Linklater
2015 - Mad Max: Fury Road (nom) - George Miller
2016 - Moonlight (Oscar) - Barry Jenkins


I haven't seen enough 2017 films to feel comfortable picking one yet, but I'm currently leaning towards Call Me By Your Name, although that will most likely change as time goes by. Overall, my picks are more mainstream than the Rosscars, and generally I tend to agree more with the real-life Oscars, with us sharing 10 winners out of the past 27 years, and only 5 of my picks not being nominated at all. I also have two Animated films on the list, both of which I will defend to my last breath as masterpieces regardless of genre. However, if Animated films weren't considered to be eligible for Best Picture I would replace Toy Story and Wall-E with Casino (Scorsese) and The Dark Knight (Nolan), respectively, neither of which were nominated for Best Picture irl.

Assuming each Best Picture winner, would also win Best Director, than Since 1990, I'd have 2 Oscars a piece go to Scorsese, The Coen Brothers, Terence Malick and Kathryn Bigelow
