For many Oscar fans, the most frustrating thing about the ceremony is when they fail to recognize something or someone truly great. “How could they have snubbed that film?!?” is a reaction all too common to awards watchers. Unfortunately, we can never truly undo the mistakes AMPAS makes, but we at The Awards Circuit believe in giving our readers the opportunity to at least rewrite history in our own little corner of the internet. Forget Hollywood politics or media brainwashing; the only voices at the Awards Circuit Community Awards that count are your own. So be unique, be passionate, and make sure you vote, because at ACCA, you are the Academy!
