That led me down a mental rabbit hole and got me asking myself, “Who else should have been nominated?!” After scouring my brain for completely useless knowledge I came to a simple conclusion: the Academy should start giving out a special award for past work that was unrecognized. Sounds wild, right? Hear me out. Sometimes the Academy gets it wrong. Sometimes performers make us… laugh… and we know how the Academy generally feels... Read More
