My Oscars 2012

Movies fuel our dreams, combust our fantasies, and show us who we are. Movie going is a personal journey of self-discovery and magic. So why not cap off a private/public year immersed in the multi-plexes by crowning my own heroes/heroines/auteurs of the silver screen in my own way. The Oscars are all about who is most popular. If these once golden statuettes were given on merit of pure cinematic energy and near-perfection alone, the winners SHOULD be:
