if it were up to me

Seeing the Oscar nominations this year was extremely disappointing.  This year, more than ever, I feel like they really missed the mark.  There were so, so many good films about so many varying subjects, and I feel like these award shows always favor performances in biopics which are generally good, but not personally my favorite.  So, if it were up to me, these would be the winners of the major acting/film awards:

Best Actor (tied)
Michael Fassbender in Shame
Michael Shannon in Take Shelter

Best Actress
Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin

Best Supporting Actor
Christopher Plummer in Beginners

Best Supporting Actress
Octavia Spencer in The Help

Best Foreign Film
A Separation

Best Picture (tied)
The Tree of Life
