1st Annual Oscar Nazi Award Nominations!

Ready for a really long post? If I had my way, this is what the nominations would look like on Thursday morning. It almost certainly will look quite different in reality, but whatever favourite films of mine AMPAS snubs can take consolation in the fact that they're still in the running for the 1st Annual Oscar Nazi Awards! Winners announced Monday.

-The Dark Knight leads the nominations with 11, follwed by WALL-E with 10, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Slumdog Millionaire with 9, and then The Wrestler with 6.
