You Decide The Academy Awards: Best Director

Rarely has a snub gone on to define a category, but this year’s Best Director race has been marked by the absence of Ben Affleck.

Watch MTV’s official Oscars roundtable and see our predictions!

Before his film “Argo” went on an awards tear and started cleaning up at every ceremony, his lack of a nomination seemed like an oversight, but now it’s just flat wrong, since he likely would have won.

But that’s what’s so great about MTV Movies Blog’s You Decide 2013 polls; you don’t have to listen to what the Academy says. You choose the winner.

Vote in the polls after the jump!

Polls close tomorrow (2/22) at 3 p.m. ET, so vote now! Check back to the winner on Saturday!
