The Oscars are tonight and while Hollywood and the recruiting world don’t often mesh, we’re about to change that. Although the class of 2011 didn’t put on a tuxedo to announce what college they’re committing to (though we assume that’s coming), pretend for a second that they did and the NCAA handed out some golden statues to the best stories of the year. Who would they go to?

May we present the Recruiting Oscars for 2011:

Best Picture goes to... 

Georgia running back commit Isaiah Crowell for ‘Bulldog’s are for me.’

Actor in a leading role goes to... 

Georgia commit Jay Rome for being the ringleader for the ‘Georgia Dream Team.’

Actor in a supporting role goes to...

Alabama offensive lineman Arie Kounadjio for helping convince his brother Cyrus to attend Alabama and then announcing it to the world on his Twitter account.

Best costume design goes to... 

Alabama for the presentation (and subsequent controversy) of 'Fax Cam' and the outfit worn by Fax Cam Girl.

Best director goes too... 

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, who, despite being a head coach for less than two years, cleaned up in the state of Florida and brought in one of the top classes in the nation.

Best visual effects goes to... 

Defensive back Floyd Raven, who's mother designed a picture perfect forgery of a Letter of Intent to send to Ole Miss before Raven eventually signed with Texas A&M.

Best makeup goes to...

USC head coach Lane Kiffin for being able to put a lot of makeup on USC's sanctions and scholarship limits to bring in 30 recruits to the land of Troy.

Best adapted screenplay goes to... 

It's rare for sequels to win Oscars but Jadeveon Clowney takes home the golden statue for 'Number One Recruit Waits to Sign.'
