    This is the ultimate question. In the winner in A YEAR, and any category was gone (the movie was not rleased os whatever) who was going to win?

    For instance: If The Departed was not in 2006, who was the best Picture? Babel? Little Miss Sunshine?

    Up in the Air could not even win screenplay.  Avatar had 2009.

    I’d agree with above except I think Judi Dench would’ve won for Notes on a Scandal, not Meryl Streep for Devil Wears Prada, and Daniel Day-Lewis would’ve been the sole win for Gangs of New York.

    Strangely, I also reckon that although Emmanuelle Riva might’ve come 2nd last year, if there was no JLaw then Jessica Chastain would’ve taken her spot as the queen of Hollywood and won.

    No way would Atonement have won, it was missing directing, editing and lead acting categories, where it might’ve been expected to get in. So what if it won GG and BAFTA? Juno or There Will Be Blood would’ve been the winner. Personally I think Milk would’ve won in 2008, with Gus Van Sant winning director.

    How sad to think that many of the alternatives mentioned above are MUCH better than the final outcome…….

    I’d do the actresses

    Actress

    2012:Emmanuelle Riva for Amour

    2011:Viola Davis for The Help

    2010:Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right

    2009:Meryl Streep for Julie and Julia

    2008:Meryl Streep for Doubt

    2007:Julie Christie for Away from Her

    2006:Judi Dench for Notes on a Scandal or Meryl Streep for Prada

    2005:Felicity Huffman for Transamerica

    2004:Imelda Staunton for Vera Drake

    2003:Naomi Watts for 21 Grams

    2002:Renee Zellweger for Chicago.

    2001:Sissy Spacek for In the Bedroom

    2000:Ellen Burstyn for Requiem for a Dream

    1999:Annette Bening for American Beauty

    1998:Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth

    Supporting Actress

    2012: Sally Field for Lincoln

    2011: Berenice Bejo for The Artist

    2010: Helena Bonham Carter for The King’s Speech 

    2009: Vera Farmiga for Up in the Air

    2008: Viola Davis for Doubt

    2007: Anyone,really.

    2006: Again,not very obvious since Hudson won almost everything that year.Cate just won two years ago,so I guess it’d be either of the ladies from Babel

    2005: Michelle Williams for Brokeback Mountain,since they might want to award BBM in some way.Amy’s film was too small.

    2004: Natalie Portman for Closer

    2003: Not very obvious since Zellweger won pretty much everything that year,it wouldn’t be Harden because she just won not so long ago,maybe Shohreh Aghdasholoo for House of Sand and Fog

    2002: Meryl Streep for Adaptation

    2001: Helen Mirren for Gosford Park

    2000: Kate Hudson for Almost Famous

    ^Remember, in the case of Blanchett and Harden, this hypothetical scenario doesn’t have them winning in the years they actually won. So maybe they get the vote BECAUSE they didn’t win when they ‘should have’. Maybe I’m over complicating this game…

    I’ll start with picture, do more later.

    Without Argo – Life of Pi
    Without The Artist – Hugo
    Without The King’s Speech – The Social Network
    Without The Hurt Locker – Precious (Think about it, it shocked in the screenplay category, got an editing nod, had actor support and first black director to win)
    Without Slumdog Millionaire – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    Without No Country for Old Men – There Will Be Blood
    Without The Departed – Little Miss Sunshine
    Without Crash – Brokeback Mountain
    Without Million Dollar Baby – Sideways
    Without LOTR – Mystic River
    Without Chicago – The Pianist
    Without A Beautiful Mind – either Gosford Park or LOTR
    Without Gladiator – Traffic

    ^I think I agree with all of those. Precious makes a lot of sense because it has a similar audience and history factor as THL, besides much of that win was because of anti-Avatar/Cameron sentiment.
