I don't always do these "oscar shouldabeens", for a couple of reasons.

What frustrates me most of all is that some years are considerably better than others, so one year I don't have any decent candidates for a shouldabeen-winner in some category, and the next year, I have an abundance of deserving people. Also, I often have the same actors and directors year in, year out, with relatively little variance. So, I prefer the "top 100 of the decade" list which I have - under progress - at the other thread.

But, in any case, here are my choices for Oscar Shouldabeens in 2008.
