    Macaulay Culkin stole the show - at least in Philly - during the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night. 

    He thinks the Eagles deserved to take one home. 

    Thanks, Macaulay. That gives us an idea. 

    What other Eagles deserved an Oscar on Sunday night. The nominees are in: 

    Best supporting actor 
    Nick Foles 
    Halapoulivaati Vaitai 
    Nigel Bradham 

    All three players were called upon after the Eagles suffered major injuries throughout the season.

    Costume design
    Lane Johnson 
    Jason Kelce
    Chris Long 
    Malcolm Jenkins 

    Lane Johnson and Chris Long get equal parts credit for the dog masks. Malcolm Jenkins owns his own clothing store and is clearly the most dapper of the Birds. And Jason Kelce actually wore the Mummers costume to the parade. Donnie Jones and his sweatpants were unfortunately snubbed here. 

    Best live action short
    The Electric Slide
    The Home Run 
    The Jeff Lurie Shuffle
    The Flying V 

    There were plenty to choose from in this category. The Eagles certainly didn't lack celebrations during their Super Bowl season. The Jeff Lurie Shuffle is the rare independent film that has a real shot. 

    Best Original Screenplay
    The Philly Special
    Wentz's Houdini 
    North Dakota Pass to Clement
    Patrick Robinson Pick-6

    Plenty of great plays from the championship season. For a long time the play Carson Wentz brought with him from North Dakota State looked like a front-runner. But The Philly Special is like Titanic in the Best Picture category in '97 - a no-doubter. 

    Best Original Song 
    "No One Likes Us, We Don't Care"
    "Dreams and Nightmares" 
    "Bodak Yellow" 
    "Fly Eagles Fly" 

    Toward the end of the season "Dreams and Nightmares" became an anthem for the Eagles, even thought a few of the guys were caught dancing to "Bodak Yellow" in pregame warmups. But Kelce might have won it for "No One Likes Us, We Don't Care" at the parade. 

    Best Directing 
    Doug Pederson 
    Jim Schwartz 
    Howie Roseman
    Frank Reich 

    The Eagles had plenty of directors. Pederson is the front-runner in this category but Schwartz led the defense and Roseman put together the whole team. 

    Best actor 
    - Nick Foles in The Philly Special
    - Corey Clement in The Flea Flicker
    - Doug Pederson in The Least Qualified Coach in NFL History 

    Foles' acting job on The Philly Special was, well, special. Clement did a great job selling that flea-flicker against the Vikings. And Pederson's performance, getting everyone to believe he wasn't a great coach, was pretty impressive too.
