Along with awards season inevitably comes disappointment about nominations.
Whether the award in question is being not diverse enough, not original enough or simply not into same films as you, it happens every time.
One person with a more positive solution is Eighth Grade actor Elsie Fisher, who announced her tongue-in-cheek decision to start her own film awards "because sometimes other ones suck".
Dubbing them the Elsie Awards, Fisher even invented categories of her own, like best horror, to showcase a genre traditionally snubbed by the Oscars.
For best director, Fisher cherry-picked audience favourites Lorene Scafaria, Bong Joon Ho, Alma Har’el, Lulu Wang and Jordan Peele.
For best actress, there's no Scarlett Johansson to be seen: only Lupita Nyong’o, Awkwafina, Florence Pugh, Ana De Armas and Constance Wu.
Twitter users have reacted positively to Fisher's announcement, and she plans to announce the winners today 12pm EST.
