    This is always fun to speculate about.

    I think La La Land would’ve beaten Spotlight in Best Picture. La La Land‘s backlash resulted in a loss only because of a clear alternative that had major political and social resonance for the Academy, whereas Spotlight essentially won by default as it was the most traditionally “Oscary” nominee in a wide-open race.

    Lincoln might have beaten The Imitation Game for Adapted Screenplay. The latter’s rather clunky script was quasi-literary enough to win in a weak lineup (the most deserving nominee probably came in last), while the former’s almost Shakespearean dialogue may have had a much better chance without a Best Picture winner in the same category.

    I think Annette Bening in The Kids Are All Right would’ve won over Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side.

    Any more possibilities?

    I suspect both Moore in Ordinary People and Lange in Frances defeat Hepburn in On Golden Pond.

    If Revolutionary Road was released in 2009. Kate would’ve won.

    In a situation where she hadn’t won for The Reader, definitely.

    I forgot one earlier, The Grand Budapest Hotel probably would’ve beaten Django Unchained or Her in Original Screenplay, and possibly even Midnight in Paris.

    If captain Phillips wasn’t released in the same year as Dallas buyers club barkhad abdi would of won supporting actor

    The only recent supporting actor winner I can imagine Abdi beating is Christoph Waltz in Django, and even that’s a bit of a stretch.

    “Everything Is Awesome!”, I’m Not Gonna Miss You”, “Can’t Story the Feeling!” & “How Far I’ll Go” would’ve beat “Writing’s on the Wall”

    All of the 2010 nominees would’ve beat Man or Muppet

    Nope. Her and Midnight in Paris are too significant to go down for Wes Anderson.

    Any of the Best Actress losers from 1993 and 1995 would have beaten Jessica Lange in 1994. Especially Angela Bassett and Sharon Stone.
