    I can’t believe that Fox sent the DVD of “Life of Pi” to academy members four days AFTER voting commenced. Crazy? Read More:

    Two possible reasons for this:

    — Fox wanted as many members as possible to see this in 3D (makes total sense)

    — By getting a new movie just before Xmas, increased chances they might watch it with family and friends

    This year, with the horrific new deadline and uncharted territory, this is a risk. But hardly the only one.

    This is a neat use of concept psychology with recency: the idea that the first of something and the last of something will impress on an individual more definitively.

    True. I’ll also say the ones sending first in Nov, and early Dec might have a slight advantage over the late December ones.

    I think Life of Pi will be this year’s elaborate, big-budget technical marvel by a respected director that gets a lot of nominations, a handful of wins, but ultimately no Best Picture award.  It has been happening quite regularly at the Oscars lately:

    2011 – Hugo
    2010 – Inception
    2009 – Avatar
    2008 – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    It also happened in 2000 when Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (which was also directed by Life of Pi‘s Ang Lee) scored 10 nominations, won the DGA (which could theoretically happen again for Lee this year), but lost to the period piece Gladiator.  Could we see a repeat with Spielberg’s historical Lincoln?

    If the theory is correct, then Amour will win a lot of awards, since I’d bet a lot of the non actors, directors and writers have yet to see it more than any other nominee

    I still think a lot of members saw Pi in 3D
