    The next time you’re tempted to roar, “Those Oscarologists are IDIOTS!” — consider this: our predix from 2 years ago today.

    We called 4 of the top 6 Oscar races correctly. However, we REALLY screwed up those other two races!

    I remember early on, we were all calling The Master to win Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Screenplay. We also mixed up the two leads, picking Philip Seymour Hoffman to win Best Actor again, and Joaquin Phoenix to win Best Supporting Actor. It was so divisive, it only ended up with three acting nominations (the first time a film has gotten three acting nominations and absolutely no other nominations since 1981 with Only When I Laugh)

    I remembered I had so many things for Best Picture. My thinking was the following (over the course from October to March) :
    – The Master
    – Silver Linings Playbook
    Argo
    Les Miserables
    Argo 
    Lincoln

    and then finally (and luckily back to the eventual winner)
    Argo!

    Don’t we love the Oscar race?!

    I had no idea Argo would be the sweep until the Globes. I swore it would be either Zero Dark Thirty or Les Mis

    This was the first race I predicted on a Goldderby, because I was watching it throughout the season and eventually joined the site so I could log predictions. I know I predicted all the BPs except Amour, and I though Zero Dark Thirty would actually win. I did have all the eventual winners in the big six categories, as nominees but I only had Day-Lewis winning. I did switch over to Hathaway after seeing Les Mis, but I was foolishly reluctant to accept the consensus before that.

    I was actually predicting Lincoln to sweep quite a bit. That was before the Affleck snub and I think that somehow changed the race.

    Argo did not sweep.

    You have to win at least 6 or 7 Oscars to consider a SWEEP.

    Shakespeare in love, Chicago, The Return of the King, Slumdog Millionaire…

    ^ I think he might mean Argo swept the “precursors” for best picture, like Globes, guilds and BAFTA, not that it swept the Oscars.

    I wanted to quote your post, but accidentally reported it. So I hope it isn’t removed. I’m sorry.
    But I wanted to correct your statement because Iris got 3 acting nods and nothing else. So the last time it happened was in 2001, not 1981.
