    By now, Marvel comics have been responsible for enough films to fill their own awards. Who would you pick for nominations and wins if there were Oscars just for Marvel movies?

    (Feel free to pick to pick from beyond the official Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the previous “Spider-Man,” “X-Men,” “Fantastic Four,” etc.)

    Lots of critics backed Spiderman 2 as one of their favorite movies of 2004. I think that would have been one and Alfred Molina for Supporting Actor. Willem DaFoe might have gotten notices for the first Spiderman. X Men 2 would have won big and Ian McKellen earning Supporting Actor awards.

    I haven’t seen everything, but I think leading my personal Best Picture lineup would be:

    “Spider-Man 2”
    “X2: X-Men United”

    After that, I can’t say there were any I truly loved, but I’d probably round out a top five with

    “Big Hero 6”
    “The Hulk” (Ang Lee’s)
    “Iron Man”

    “Kick-Ass” is based on a comic by a Marvel Comics imprint, so if I decided to count that, it would definitely make my list.

    Guardians of the Galaxy would’ve won Best Actor for Chris Pratt and if there was an award for Best CGI or Motion Capture Performance in a Marvel Movie, Bradley Cooper would be a shoo-in for his work as Rocket Raccoon. There is also Best Picture as well.

    I would’ve also nominated X2: X-Men United and X-Men across the board in their respective years. I thought they were deserving of nods in the actual Oscars because of how they deal with themes of racism and homophobia without actually using race and sexuality.

    If we are counting Kick Ass then Chloe Moretz wins best Supporting Actress for the first film.

    Really surprised nobody has mentioned Patrick Stewart.

    If it’s being voted on by any aggregate of people (who presumably watched all of the few eligible films with a chance), Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy would probably be competing for Best Picture, with Iron Man, Spider-Man 2, and X2 as dark horses. I’ll include imprints (the Men in Black series, Kingsman, the Kick-Ass films) but nothing non-theatrical. My personal choices:

    BEST PICTURE
    1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    2. Guardians of the Galaxy 
    3. Men in Black
    4. Kingsman: The Secret Service
    5. Kick-Ass
    6. Big Hero 6 
    7. Iron Man 3
    8. X2: X-Men United
    9. X-Men: First Class
    10. Spider-Man 2
    (The Avengers)
     
    BEST ACTOR
    1. Chris Pratt – Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. Chris Evans – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    3. Colin Firth – Kingsman: The Secret Service (he does have the biggest part/most to say)
    4. Robert Downey Jr. – Iron Man 3
    5. Hugh Jackman – The Wolverine
    (James McAvoy – X-Men: Days of Future Past)

    BEST ACTRESS 
    1. Chloe Moretz – Kick-Ass
    2. Natalie Portman – Thor (it’s her POV)
    3. Anna Paquin – X-Men
    4. Jennifer Lawrence – X-Men: First Class
    5. Kirsten Dunst – Spider-Man 2 
    (Kirsten Dunst – Spider-Man)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
    1. Alfred Molina – Spider Man 2
    2. Anthony Mackie – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    3. Ian McKellen – X2: X-Men United
    4. Patrick Stewart – X2: X-Men United
    5. Hiroyuki Sanada – The Wolverine
    (Tom Hiddleston – Thor)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    1. Hayley Atwell – Captain America: The First Avenger
    2. Rebecca Romijn – X2: X-Men United
    3. Rosemary Harris – Spider-Man
    4. Emma Thompson – Men in Black 3
    5. Famke Janssen – X-Men: The Last Stand
    (Gwyneth Paltrow – Iron Man)

    BEST DIRECTOR
    1. James Gunn – Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. Joss Whedon – Avengers: Age of Ultron
    3. Anthony Russo and Joe Russo – Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    4. Matthew Vaughn – Kingsman: The Secret Service
    5. Bryan Singer – X-Men: First Class
    (Shane Black – Iron Man 3)

    BEST SCREENPLAY
    1. Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    3. Kick-Ass
    4. Kingsman: The Secret Service
    5. Men in Black
    (The Avengers)

    Daredevil, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X3, The Incredible Hulk, and Spider-Man 3 can hash it out for the Razzies. Hayley Atwell and Vincent D’Onofrio’s MCU TV work is as good as any of these performances.

    What I’ve seen, ranked (missed Blades, Elektra, Hulk, Fantastic Fours, Ghost Riders, Punishers, X-Men Origins, Howard the Duck):

    1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
    2. Guardians of the Galaxy 
    3. Men in Black
    4. Kingsman: The Secret Service
    5. Kick-Ass
    6. Big Hero 6 
    7. Iron Man 3
    8. X2: X-Men United
    9. X-Men: First Class
    10. Spider-Man 2

    11. The Avengers
    12. Men in Black 3
    13. Avengers: Age of Ultron
    14. X-Men: Days of Future Past
    15. Captain America: The First Avenger
    16. Spider-Man
    17. Thor: The Dark World
    18. Iron Man
    19. The Wolverine
    20. X-Men

    21. Thor
    22. Iron Man 2
    23. The Incredible Hulk
    24. Spider-Man 3
    25. Kick-Ass 2
    26. The Amazing Spider-Man
    27. Men in Black II
    28. X-Men: The Last Stand 
    29. Daredevil 
    30. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
