8 Oscar-Worthy Categories That Get Overlooked

This week we posted a video from The Huffington Post that pointed out how overlooked the very deserving Stunt Department is when it comes to the Oscars.  On our Facebook feed, our users spoke up about other categories that also deserve recognition, so we compiled those responses into this list.
