    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?

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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?
