The Oscar categories you don’t know about

As you probably know, the Oscar nominations were announced yesterday, and there were a few pleasant additions, like Inglourious Basterds and District 9. With the Academy changing the rules and having 10 nominees for Best Picture, it seems like the Oscars have had a bit of an upheaval. But did you know that there are secret categories that they don’t announce or televise? Here are just a few, along with the current frontrunner for each category:

Best Toy Line Turned Into a Movie: GI Joe
Worst Toy Line Turned Into a Movie: The Bratz Movie

Best Naked Blue Man: Dr. Manhattan, Watchmen
(Honorable Mention: Jakesully, Avatar)

Best Mall Cop Movie: Observe and Report

Coolest Nazi Ever: Hans Landa, Inglourious Basterds

Douchiest Movie Scene: “Robot Heaven”, Transformers 2

Best Ryan Reynolds Role: The Proposal
Worst Ryan Reynolds Role: Wolverine

Best Title That Should be a Porn: The Lovely Bones

    “Coolest Nazi Ever: Hans Landa, Inglourious Basterds”

    Very true. He was terrific in the movie. I just watched it over this past weekend.

    I thought about watching Post Grad, but couldn’t bring myself to do it.

    And I agree that “Observe and Report” beats out “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” But, just barely.

    I have never understood the fascination with watching other people get accolades for something. It’s all so… boring. I’d rather people all stand around and ruminate on how awesome I am. Much more exciting.

    I hate watching the awards shows *snore.*

    There are so many awards we never hear about. My sister is a writer in L.A. who writes for a Disney Channel show and just got nominated for a WGA for Outstanding Writing in Children’s Episodic Programs. Even though nobody will ever hear about it she still gets to go to the awards show and rub elbows with all the beautiful people.
