• Should've Won the Oscar?

    March 5, 2018 – April 16, 2018

About the Event:

Anyone remember the movie Cavalcade? Didn't think so. But it won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1933, while a certain classic about a giant gorilla terrorizing New York wasn't even nominated. If you think that's unfair, then join us for our alternative Oscars series - what the awards might have been like in a more reasonable universe. 03/05: King Kong (1933) One of Hollywood's most iconic films, overlooked for fairly forgettable drama Cavalcade. No wonder the big ape was so upset. 03/12: Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) This Frank Capra gem lost out to the shallow spectacle of The Great Ziegfeld. Huh? 03/19: The Heiress (1949) While All the King's Men is surely a quality film, is it on the same level as this William Wyler masterpiece starring Olivia de Havilland and Montgomery Clift? 03/26: Touch of Evil (1958) Orson Welles' gritty film noir versus the frothy musical Gigi! Talk about a study in contrasts. 04/02: Dr. Strangelove (1964) While we're certainly not questioning the validity of My Fair Lady, an even stronger case could be made for Stanley Kubrick's absurdist black comedy about the Cold War.  04/09: Badlands (1973) Terrence Malick's true life crime drama was arguably a worthier champion than the star-powered comedy of The Sting. 04/16: The Apostle (1997) Robert Duvall's tour de force (he wrote, directed, and starred in the film) would have been a more adventurous choice than the epic melodrama of Titanic.
