Oscars: If Geeks Ran the Academy

The expanded slate of Best Picture nominees at the 2010 Academy Awards resulted in a geek windfall. Not only did the decade-in-the-making sci-fi epic Avatar make the list of nominees, but so did the alien apartheid parable District 9 and even the Pixar sci-fi movie Up, only the second time an animated film has been nominated for Best Picture. But if geeks actually ran the Oscars, this would be par for the course each year. In fact, plenty of past nominees would have been winners instead of also-rans if nerds had been in charge from the very beginning. Take a look at how Oscar history would've been different, and perhaps better.
