2014 ForgotScars: Celebrating the Oscar Forgotten

Posted: Updated:

This morning, I watched the Oscar nominations on ABC, and was so befuddled by the omissions I scratched my head, and then turned to my 2-year-old son, and scratched his. They were, in a word, jarring. Anyway, as I do each year, here's my list of nominees formed from the non-nominated. The Forgotscars date back 10 years, and I've listed them in numerous outlets. No one actually earns a "Forgotscar" -- it's just me giving props to those who didn't get any this morning. For shame, you sick, twisted little gold man (or Academy). Read on, and weigh in. No awards, just respect. And before I begin let me say for shame no Joaquin Phoenix!
