The Forgotten Oscars 2013: Our annual celebration of unsung sci-fi, horror, and action films

By MICHAEL NEEL  |  February 27, 2013

It’s Oscar time again. Fuckin’ great. We crowd around our TV sets, oohing and ahhing while millionaires give golden trophies to other millionaires for making the best dramas about people talking to each other. Satan help the filmmaker whose movie has anything super creepy or intensely violent, or is a hell of a fun action flick, or decided to make people laugh instead of cry: in the eyes of the Academy, they just aren’t good enough. Hollywood can try to pretend that dramas are the only films worth honoring — but they’re in my realm now, and the rules are different. Severed limbs, skinned corpses, ass-kicking fight scenes, and dark subversive comedy reign supreme here.

It’s time for the Forgotten Oscars, bitches.

SPOILER ALERT: Proceed at your own risk ...
