I know this post will probably be deleted but i am wondering why in the predictions center the choices are so much more limited than a week ago+. We should be able to have a lot of choices. I mean… Viola Davis is included for Prisoners over Amy Adams in Her. In my opinion Adams has a much better shot of getting in than davis. And i know its a longshot but i was predicting “Stoker” to get into cinematography, cause it was amazing! but stoker isn’t available anymore to predict. This is also the case with other categories. I’m not trying to complain, but it seems to me that it was better when we had more choices in the prediction center.
I agree. Sometimes longshots do get in but I believe the editors only want serious contenders in the predictions list right now.
Long shots and wishful wants have no place when consensus group think kicks in. And they announce their nominees mimicking each other until the Academy has their final say which won’t be too different from everyone else prior.
