    are there any statistics we should rethink or take into consideration.

    i will definitely know 2 things now:
    1. never underestimate a movie that won MPSE for sound effects and foley & dialogue and ADR.it’s your winner for editing and sound mixing (if nominated);
    2. if there is no clear frontrunner in a category (the main contenders have many cons), always pick the most respected nominee to win.

    what else?
    do not underestimate the power of SAG ensemble nom? ISA win for best feature?

    Uh….Arrival won sound editing and it definitely lost the MPSE and Hacksaw was definitely nominated in Sound Editing as well…..

    That you can’t have an old person presenting an Oscar with another old person who tinks the first old person is just being old, blind, funny, confused and again, typical old grandpa, taking too long for the last award of the night pressuring him into doing his one job, not letting him get things clear when he’s obviously confused because something is apparently wrong.

    We also learned that once a category is announced and checked by the accountants, the other duplicate envelope on the other side of the stage needs to be destroyed, at least ripped a little…or at least get it back in the fucking suitcase and only leave the remaining categories outside on the table.

    The death of stats that we awards nerds were dependent on. It started with Birdman being able to win w/o an editing nomination and it hasn’t stopped since. It’s a development for the better.

    That if you win SAG only, people will refuse to believe that it’s a fluke until Oscar Night.

    Which I don’t get. 5/17 years the last 17 years they guessed all 4/4 acting awards correctly. Yet people were clinging on the fact that Best actor hasn’t been wrong in 12 years and swore up and down Mahershala and Emma were going to win. Look at it collectively and you wouldn’t be surprised.

    This year confirmed for good to not bet against the anointed young hot thing especially when she has GG, SAG and BAFTA.

    A SAG Ensemble nom is a must.

    That win a guy wins literally all the critics awards he’s probably the best performance and going to win.

    With the preferential ballot, most best picture winners are going to be “important” from now on ala Spotlight and Moonlight. Films like The Revenant and LLL that are made purely for entertainment won’t win as much when the academy is political and wants to send a message

    I’m never going to win my Oscar pool despite having the reputation as being the best predictor among my peers. Everyone around me hypes me up because I’m the only one who does any research but I still always lose.

    You can’t win Best Picture without an Ensemble nod.

    Despite people saying a lead actor can’t win both Indie Spirit and the Oscar, they can.

    That SAG ensemble nom is a great deal and people should stop undermining it with lame excuses.

    Preference vote = passion vote. Live it, learn it, love it. Expect this to be a deciding factor in BP moving forward.
