So yesterday the Academy decided to take back an Oscar nomination for original song "Alone Yet Not Alone" due to its composer (a Music Branch executive committee member) internally promoting the song. This was the first time a nomination was retroactively disqualified for alleged campaign malpractice, though we're pretty sure this ain't the first time there's been such a thing (I mean, aren't the Oscars one giant campaign malpractice?). Either way, the news got us thinking and wishing and bitching... About 10 nominations from the past we wish had been rescinded...
