The Bob Award Nominations

Once again it is that time. A few years ago I decided I was tired of just complaining about how the Oscars, Baftas, Golden Globes, etc. always got it wrong. So I did something about it. I continued to complain. But, I also created the Bob Awards.
Is it incredibly nerdy? Yes. Am I overthinking things? Probably. Do they have any bearing on the film industry? No. Will I continue to do this year after year? Absolutely.
I'm a little concerned this year as I'm more in line with the Oscar nominees than usual. Does this mean I'm becoming stodgy and bland or that the Academy got it more right than normal this time? I'm going to just assume that it's the latter.
As always the eventual winners will be receiving mailed Red Robin gift certificates and for the first time ever all nominees shall be recipients of a sample size box of Tide laundry detergent. When it's got to be clean it's got to be Tide! And now here they are in all their glory. The Bob Award nominations:
