Deadly Movies Alternative Oscars 2012

The Oscars are upon us once again, and there’s little surprise that there’s little surprises. As always any surprises come in the form of omissions. But at Deadly Movies HQ we like to avoid the self indulgence of Oscar porn and have our very own alternative Oscar nominations list. Now this is only an exercise in personal indulgence with a pinch of facetiousness so please don’t bang on at me about what is and isn’t a horror movie or what is and what isn’t a pile of dog crap. Of course feel free to pick your winners and losers from the nominations below.

    I vote Super 8 for everything, and then Scream 4 for everything else. Because it’s Scream.

    Here are my picks…

    Best Picture (The Academy chose 9 movies for this -random! – so I’ll do the same)
    Attack the Block

    Best Director
    David Fincher – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

    Best Actress
    Rooney Mara – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

    Best Actor
    Colin Farrell – Fright Night (I found this performance incredilly enjoyable)

    Best Supporting Actress
    Johanna Mørck – Troll Hunter (it’s the only one I’ve seen!)

    Best Supporting Actor
    Andy Serkis – Rise of the Apes

    Best Foreign Film
    I Saw The Devil (Korea). I love my Korean revenge movies, but I found this one so harrowing I’m not sure if I’ll ever give it a second viewing. Similar to ‘Requiem for a Dream’ in the way it left me with a sick feeling in my gut and the want to just curl up into the foetul position.

    Best Cinematography
    I Saw The Devil – Mogae Lee. The shot where Min-sik Choi goes stab happy in the taxi was absoloutely phenomenal.

    Best Visual Effects
    Rise of the Apes

    Best Make-up
    Attack The Block (again, only one I’d seen).
