    From 1932 to 1935 the Academy released the results of what nominee came in 2nd and 3rd place. Should the Academy bring that back since the ratings are in a tailspin. Discuss.

    Nah. The second placer would still be a loser, so it wouldn’t make a difference.

    It’ll never ever happen. But I don’t think anyone here would disagree with this idea.
    At least, we would finally put an end to those endless discussions about who was the runner-up and who was the filler etc.

    If it did happen, which it never will, it would be a ratings jaggernaut.

    I’d fucking love to know those results! I’d have finally known if there are voters who don’t go with the buzz so I can still have a little respect for Academy. But if I find out that the best nominated people actually came in second to last or last place then no more Oscars for me ever again.

    If I were someone who everyone thought was close to the win but then wasn’t even top 3, I’d be pissy.
    If I indeed turned out to be 2nd multiple times like Bening looks to be, I wouldn’t feel any better about losing.

    The Aacdemy believes that releasing vote totals will humiliate any nominee who got low votes and will possibly damage that nominee’s career.

     

    However, one way to release vote totals without damaging anyone’s career, is to release these totals about 30 – 40 years after the fact. After that many years, most nominees will be retired or dead.

    I’ve always been curious to know where the other nominees placed.

    I wish but would never happen. I’d be curious for the all time bug upsets like Denzel over Russell Crowe how close the voting was

    I would think every agent in town would be against this idea as it could potentially devalue their clients in a major way. It would take away much leverage actors have when using their Oscar nominations in negotiations for contracts and salary raises. 

    However, what I wouldn’t mind is if they would release the tallies for past Oscars. Perhaps they could just post them on the AMPAS website and only post listings for Oscar cermonies from 10+ years ago.    That way it wouldn’t stand to hurt as many people’s careers.

    I don’t see what kind of value or use that would have.

    It would have a tremendous influence at subsequent ceremonies. Imagine if Leo got second in all of his nominations before ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. Perhaps that puts him over the edge for that year, and he beats McConaughey. 

    They won’t ever do it.

    It could potentially change the way people vote, even if they waited 10 years or more to release the stats. People wouldn’t want certain contenders to look bad in the ranking, even if they didn’t truly consider them the best in their category. Announcing 2nd and 3rd place would serve no one except us Derbyites, and our curiosity is bottom of the Academy’s priority list and should remain so.

    I want to know the results, but I do not want them to be public.

    They really should release them when all of the nomiees have passed away. No harm done this way.

    For example: Best Actress 1940.
