This Sunday is the Academy Awards, which is the Super Bowl for sensitive people who like glitter.
Every year Hollywood, America's Fantasy-Industrial Complex, celebrates itself with a four-hour orgy of self-congratulations that is broadcast to hundreds of millions of people around the world. This year will be no different. Hosted by two beautiful actresses, this year's parade of plastic princes and princesses will be no different than any other year. Because every year Hollywood tries to tell us, the movie-going public, what were the best movies of the year.
Hello. Duh. We know what the best movies were, because we paid for the tickets that got us into the theater where those movies were playing.
The Academy Awards bestows laurels on the movies THEY think were the best. But we know better, don't we?
Here's our list of 15 blockbusters that should have won the Academy Award for Best Picture because they were the most popular movie of that year. We've also included the smarty-pants pics that actually won that year. The Academy votes with their fancy opinions, but the rest of us vote with our dollars.
The best pictures are those that people spend their hard-earned money on. Everything else is snobby navel-gazing.
