The Way the Oscars should have been..

So after my post yesterday, Christian decided we could make a list of what should have won last year (2004) instead of what actually won, and we made our own categories that should be there but aren't.

Best Picture - Million Dollar Baby
Best Drama - Crash Runner Up - Collateral
Best Director - Clint Eastwood for Million Dollar Baby
Best Action Flick - National Treasure, Runner Up - The Bourne Supremacy, Troy
Best Superhero Flick - Spiderman 2 Runner Up Christian's Pick - Hellboy, Raul's Pick - The Punisher
Best Comedy - Christian's Pick - White Chicks (are you serious?), Raul's Pick - Team America: World Police (Fuck Yeah!)
Runners Up - Christian's Pick - Meet the Fockers, Raul's Pick - Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Best Actor in a Guy Flick - Denzel Washington for Man On Fire
Best Actress - Hillary Swank for Million Dollar Baby
Best Actress in a Topless Scene (yeah, you knew that was coming) - Angelina Jolie in Taking Lives
Movie You Shouldn't Waste Your Time On - Raul's Pick - Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Christian's Pick - Oceans 12 Runner Up - The Forgotten (we agree here)
Best Mindless Action Flick - Blade: Trinity
Runner Up - Christian's Pick - Walking Tall, Raul's Pick - The Chronicles of Riddick
Best Actress in a Mindless Action Flick (who also should have been topless) - Jessica Biel in Blade: Trinity
Best Actor in a Mindless Action Flick - Ryan Reynolds in Blade: Trinity Runner Up: The Rock in Walking Tall
Movie You Should Have Paid to See In Theaters - Christian's Pick - Troy
Raul's Pick - King Arthur (Troy is a given)

Best Revenge Movie - The Punisher, Runner Up - Man on Fire
Best Thriller - Christian's Pick - Saw, Raul's Pick - Cellular (was Christian's Runner Up)

Christian's Movie He Couldn't Think of a Good Award for but liked - Shaun of the Dead
Raul's Movie He Couldn't Think of a Good Award for but liked - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

There you have it. None of this best musical score editing crap. Awards the way they should be, and the ones that should be. Here in the next few weeks we'll give you what the Oscars should have been for 2005.

Shaun of the Dead?! That movie was terrible.

Come on Chas...that is like a cult classic. Kind of like Tremors...I agree it's not the greatest but it's pretty good.

I never saw it so I can't comment.

The beginning started out really funny, but towards the end it started to get lame. It was a better concept than delivery. They could have done better with it.

Loved Saun of the Dead, and Im thrilled to see IM not the only one in the world who liked Troy and King Arthur. I normally get "Are you SERIOUS??!!!" looks when I say so.

My sister didn't much care for either Troy or King Arthur. Personally I loved them. I might have to make the wife watch King Arthur this weekend...we have the unrated version. I can't seem to talk her in to going to the truck rodeo at the arena though. I can't imagine why she wouldn't want to see loud trucks in a closed building. In July, we're headed to Nashville to see the IRL race...you and Greg need to find a babysitter.
