Watch me and Pete vigorously drill down through the Best Picture race to figure out what the hell’s going to win. Watch our newest video or else listen to the audio podcast. And tell me what you think of our video series this year! Are you enjoying these? Feel free to bitch, pls! – CLICK HERE:
Well, it didnt look to me that either of you were FREAKING OUT. Sigh…lol.
I agree with the “unconvinced” predix for BP.
Now, to hope for those surprises and upsets…..
Pete admits that he does not actually know that PGA was off by three votes, but he still insists that it was a close race. Based on what? How would this information ever get out?
Saying that Boyhood did better in number-one votes, but Birdman did better on the preferential ballot would be a better argument if Boyhood had not also taken Best Direction at BAFTA. I think that BAFTA was just off last year.
Interesting fact: the largest discrepancy for the Best Picture winner and the film with the most total nominations was set in 1977. Annie Hall overcame a six nomination deficit to beat out The Turning Point and Julia. The Big Short would be setting a new record in that respect with a seven nomination deficit vs. The Revenant. Spotlight winning Best Picture would tie the all-time record deficit.
