    I notice you guys love analysing past races, and it’s usually about who came second in the big categories. So i ask you which nominee do you think came last in the Best Picture voting

    I’ll start:

    2014: Selma
    2013: Captain Philipps
    2012: Zero Dark Thirty
    2011: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
    2010: 127 Hours
    2009: A Serious Man
    2008: The Reader
    2007: Atonement
    2006: The Queen
    2005: Munich
    2004: Finding Neverland
    2003: Seabiscuit
    2002: The Hours
    2001: In the Bedroom
    2000: Chocolat
    1999: The Insider
    1998: Elizabeth
    1997: The Full Monty
    1996: Shine
    1995: Il Postino
    1994: The Fugitive
    1993: Scent of a Woman
    1992: Beauty and the Beast
    1991: Ghost
    1990: Born on the Fourth of July

    I don’t know that much about earlier races so I won’t go further (I also may be too lazy). But you’re welcome to do so.

    2014: The Theory of Everything – I expect it might’ve had fewer no. 1s than Selma despite greater support overall, and fallen out first.
    2013: Captain Phillips consistently underperformed at the Oscars compared to everywhere else – no Greengrass, no Hanks and eventually no Oscar wins despite prevailing at WGA and the Eddies (love that award name lol). So that’s my bet.
    2012: Probably Zero Dark Thirty to be honest. It was sort of an anti-Argo, the Bigelow snub did not inspire the same amount of outrage as it did for Affleck, and it only just barely won the one Oscar it seemed to have a shot at. And we know how controversial it was with many people.I expect Amour and Beasts had more passion behind them, and Django rallied after underperforming in the early part of the season.
    2011: Extremely Loud. Unless it was The Tree of Life (gasp!)
    2010: 127 Hours. Apparently it was a surprise nominee, and it certainly had its fans, but again I think Kids and Winter’s Bone had more passion. Plus it couldn’t even win for that Dido song lol.

    2009: A Serious Man
    2008: Frost/Nixon
    2007: A tough one, but I’ll go with Michael Clayton
    2006: Letters from Iwo Jima
    2005: Munich
    2004: Finding Neverland
    2003: Seabiscuit
    2002: The Two Towers – there was no inclination to award the middle part of a trilogy, and it got no noms for directing, acting or writing
    2001: In the Bedroom
    2000: Chocolat

    1999: The Green Mile
    1998: Elizabeth
    1997: The Full Monty
    1996: Shine
    1995: Il Postino
    1994: Four Weddings and a Funeral
    1993: In the Name of the Father
    1992: A Few Good Men
    1991: The Prince of Tides
    1990: The Godfather Part III

    2000 – Traffic

    It won director, supporting actor, screenplay and editing – in fact it won everything it was nominated for except Best Picture. Are you sure it was in last place?

    Its always going to be a film not nominated for director from 2009-2015.

    2014: The Theory of Everything: I don’t see anyone putting this film as number one. The Imitation Game’s screenplay prize is the only thing that edges it over the Theory for me. The other non-director nominated films (Selma, Whiplash and Sniper) had vocal lovers who would have given them #1 votes.
    2013: Captain Phillips: Had no business being here, I believe it only made the Picture/Supporting Actor lineup by being consistently listed in 3rd/4th spots. 
    2012: Beasts of the Southern Wild: I honestly don’t see people putting this high on their screener pile, would’ve struggled from undersight.
    2011: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: Because it is widely considered a bad nominee.
    2010: Winter’s Bone: In a battle between King’s Speech and Social Network, smaller films are going to fall by the wayside early on.
    2009: A Serious Man: This was nominated? People would have at least watched Blind Side for Bullock, which meant it probably got votes on that alone.
    2008: Frost/Nixon: Milk performed strongly on the night, Button played right to Academy tastes and The Reader had Weinstein backing. F/N comes last by default.
    2007: Atonement: The only nominee to come away without a major win.
    2006: The Queen: Mirren had the passion, the film only cracked the lineup on a weak year.
    2005: Capote: See above.
    2004: Finding Neverland: Sideways and Ray claim third and fourth because they’d have gotten love from voters as indicated by Screenplay and Actor wins.
    2003: Seabiscuit: Not enough above-the-line love.
    2002: LOTR: Two Towers: The love was there for #1 and #3, #2 didn’t get love it needed in Director/Screenplay.
