Alternate Oscars Part II

An on-going feature where we take a random year in film and reconstruct a particular Oscar category with equal or more deserving substitutes. Or, as Doc Brown might say: "It demonstrates PRECISELY how time travel can be misused and why the time machine must be destroyed...after we straighten all this out." Don't forget to cast your vote from the parallel universe nominees (or write in your own) in the comments section.
