inspired by MasterLundegaard's similar list. fuck the Academy and their self-righteousness.
the title of this list is self-explanatory, but also drastic. by that, I mean that a lot of these aren't all of the reasons in the title, like for instance Hereditary wasn't diverse-bred but it was mesmerizing. Beale Street was both diverse-bred and mesmerizing. you see where i'm going with this? okay. anyway, enjoy, and happy (or should I say sad) awards season!
