'And the nominees are...??'

Well it's nearly time for the 2021 Academy Awards. But considering that nobody has been spending much time at the cinema lately, you could be forgiven for not having seen (or even heard of!) any of nominees that are up for an award this year!

So instead, how about we put together our own list of nominations?

Here are the categories...

  • Best Picture of All Time
  • Best Actor of All Time
  • Best Actress of All Time
  • Best Original Score/Soundtrack of All Time

You tell us who, and which films, you would like to see nominated :smiley:

    I wouldn't expect any less @Ami2301 :D I haven't seen all of the films in the MCU, but I've enjoyed the ones I've seen. They're good fun. I do plan on working my way through them all at some point!

    Spiderman has a special place in my heart because of the nostalgia @Ami2301. I also enjoyed Iron Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy. I hate picking favourites :D

    • Best Original Score/Soundtrack of All Time
    Also, if you find yourself at a bit of a loose end today, you might want to test your knowledge and find out how much you know about the winners of the ‘Best Original Song’ award over the last six decades? 

    Here's a link to the Radio 2 Ultimate Oscars Quiz if you fancy giving it a go!
