The Oscars only happen once a year but 364 days of that year, the people of tumblr rant and cry over how the Academy continues to unjustly snub Leonardo DiCaprio. Has The Academy never seen Inception? Shutter Island? Revolutionary Road? Blood Diamond? TITANIC?
Yes, if you were wondering, I am that person on tumblr who cries about this brilliant man’s lack of awards and don’t even get me started on the fact Johnny Depp has never won one either. My fingers are crossed for Leo to finally win all the awards for his role in The Great Gatsby — well all know he will own the part. Go check out the trailers, I promise you will not regret it.
Anyways, check out some of tumblr’s hysterical reactions last night to the lack of Leonardo Dicaprio at the festivities.
A friend of mine recently commented on one of the many Oscar links I’ve shared on Facebook and said reading the story I just posted made him care less about the Oscars (blasphemy!). He also added the following:
“My Oscar nominations are based on: Number of aliens slain by Iron Man, quality of wizard/hobbit relations, and whether or not the lead character would survive in the Hunger Games.”
Touché, friend. Touché. But I have to wonder: who would win based on his criteria?
Considering Academy’s best picture nominees do not include Iron Man, aliens, wizards or hobbits, we’re going to pick our Oscar favourites based on the lead character’s ability to survive The Hunger Games. Here we go!

I’ll have to find out if he was right during tomorrow’s Oscar broadcast!
