Marie writes: In the wake of the 84th Academy Awards, I couldn't help but reflect upon all the films that have been deemed unworthy of recognition over the years, and with a measure of empathy - especially for the really bad ones - as even those filming a piece of unwatchable crap secretly dream of winning an Oscar for it. Indeed; many a bottle of cheap shampoo has undoubtedly been raised and tearfully clutched before a bathroom mirror, whilst in a drug-induced fantasy of receiving one amidst the deafening roar of applause.And so on behalf of delusional dreamers everywhere, the Ebert Club would like to present the following nominees for BEST b-rated trailer!
