It’s said that in the tech categories, the names of the people aren’t on the ballot, but I have a suspicion that they might actually be and that they’re just keeping it secret. How else did Hacksaw Ridge win Sound Mixing and Film Editing? The editor of Hacksaw Ridge is John Gilbert, a previous nominee for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and one of the sound mixers of Hacksaw Ridge is, of course, Kevin O’Connell. How else did Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them win Costume Design. The Costume Designer of Fantastic Beasts is previous 3-time champ Colleen Atwood. How else did Grand Budapest Hotel win Original Score. The composer of Grand Budapest was Alexandre Desplat, whose Oscar losing streak was finally ended with that film.
It’s just a thought I had. What do you guys think?May 9, 2017 at 1:00 pm #1202088457
Or they could just go on the Oscars website to see the names of the people for each movie….May 9, 2017 at 1:27 pm #1202088478
or maybe the people who voted picked their favorites and it happened to be those people. lol

If the names were on the ballots then someone like Colleen Atwood would’ve been, if anything, less likely to win a fourth Oscar. I imagine there are a solid number of people in the Academy who are aware of who she is and that she’s a multiple Oscar-winner. And I expect far fewer members know of Kevin O’Connell’s record number of losses, so having his name on the ballot wouldn’t have made much difference except with the sound branch.May 11, 2017 at 3:09 pm #1202090272
It’s almost as if we are suggesting Academy members can’t do a google search or go on the Oscar website to find the names of the nominees before they vote if they want to or care lol.
also why does the OP have the tendency to open threads to start discussion but never posts on them after creating them.May 11, 2017 at 3:50 pm #1202090293

I actually think being by far the most recognizable name helped her with those voters who care. This is after all a club, and people have their friends and their favorites. You don’t win four Oscars by accident. Would Fantastic Beasts win with a nobody as the costume designer?May 12, 2017 at 8:43 am #1202090895
Personally i wouldnt have voted for Fantastic beats … yea there probably were people voting for her because she was well known or friends… but you cant deny she is amazing and deserving of 4 oscars … she magnificent … even if i would have voted for Jackie

I’m confused on how to use the b-quote. Could somebody help? Thanks.May 12, 2017 at 9:38 am #1202090988
How do I use it properly, though? If you see my response to GusCruz’s comment, you’ll see that I did not utilize the b-quote the way I was trying to. I only want the copy-and-paste of GusGruz’s comment to be boxed. How do I do that?May 12, 2017 at 9:41 am #1202090994
