    Because you are smart and if The Big Short wins, it will be the worst Best Picture winner in history.

    Spotlight is garbage. Try hard Oscar bait movie that was never as popular as the press hoped it would be. I considered picking straight out of Compton to upset in screenplay

    It’s a good call. My two issues: it only winning two and the missing Director nod at Bafta.

    If Boyhood had the most number ones last year why didn’t it win director?

    This. Great question and counter-argument. It applies to Boyhood more than Spotlight in that Boyhood was seen as a directorial achievement so if it had more #1 votes it would have won BD for sure.
    The film with the most #1 statstically has a better shot at a BP win on a pref ballot as well. Not just the #2s and #3s. It wins most of the time actually. Unless there’s a small gap between it and the film in 2nd place.

    The Revenant isn’t pretending to care about a social issue for its marketing. And Ruffalo’s speech is the most cringe worthy Oscar bait scene I’ve seen.

    Spotlight Oscar-bait? Really?! Without the big DRAMA and the flashy sequences and yeah, without the walk of victory in the end it’s anything but Oscar bait.

    I hope you’re right. I’ve had it as Spotlight pretty much since the noms reveal. Temporarily changed it to The Revenant post DGA (for about half an hour) before returning to Spotlight. It has the ‘seriousness’ factor, impeccably acted, great script, sound direction. The Revenant has factors in its favour for Actor and Director, but not for PICTURE!

    Spotlight has 1 huge problem. It CANT win more than 2 oscars. Unless Ruffalo upsets. so thats why i dont think it will win
