Alterna-Oscar Nominations

Sooooo… the Oscar nominations were announced. Like most years, the 2019 nominations are a combination of cool choices (BlacKkKlansmanThe Ballad of Buster Scruggs) and the bafflingly awful and tone-deaf (Green BookBohemian Rhapsody), but the real shit obviously comes from us.

That’s right, it’s Michael and Insha and we’re back on our bullshit. These are our Alternate Oscar Nominations and they’re good-as-hell and you’re wrong if you disagree with them. We did a full ten Best Picture nominees because fuck that weighted voting nonsense. We also did a full five Makeup and Hairstyling nominees and one category we even gave six nominees, because why the hell not?
