Our friends at Fandor have created a cool digital flip book detailing an “alternative history” of the Academy Awards. In its pages, you won’t find a dry recap of the films that have won Oscar gold over the years. Instead they have opted for a less traditional approach, featuring:
- Films that might have won Oscars, if the award had existed before 1927
- Films that should have been nominated, but were snubbed
- Films that were nominated and should have won, but lost out
- A video essay series discussing this year’s nominees
