Oscar Also-Rans
In honor of The Boyz' favorite night of the year, we've assembled a list of past Oscar nominees in various categories. Your job is to name the actual winner in each category, some of which are pretty big upsets. (Which gives Nipples a ray of hope for "Lost in Translation" later tonight.)
