Tim Burton

Tim Burton is undeniably a visionary director, animator and wizard of weirdness whose mere name conjures a very specific aesthetic. Yet his shelves remain empty of any acknowledgement from the Academy. Does our voting body not like the mix of mirth and the macabre, or are we just waiting for right project? Seems like it should have happened by now.

Nominations: Two for Best Animated Feature (Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie).
Should Have Won For: Ed Wood.
Maybe This Is All Punishment For: That revisionist, darkness du jour version of Alice in Wonderland.
