    I think it has a lot to do with the truncated voting system as well. I remember when it was startling that the Oscars were happening in February at all, now they’re in the beginning of the month. I don’t know why they’re doing that either though; they’re the Oscars, they can wait, it’s the other awards that have to get out early, not them.

    I don’t suspect it’s the only thing though; this year seems particularly unusual for them. I mean, even the sound categories each had four BP nominees, and the same four at that. This seems like the other Oscars were trying to be their own BP prognostcators. There’s an exception in the crafts here and there, but on the whole, it feels like the Academy Branches just went, “Let’s try to get the five closest we can get to the BP nominees without people caling bullshit on us.”

    I agree about the short time. I’m sure people just picked movies they heard were tops with out actually seeing. Just to get it over with during holidays. They really didn’t have much time to look at nominees. Reminds me of Wanda Sykes at Ellen show last year where she said she got email that time was running out and she just picked any black movie in each category. That’s why same movies in every category. People just went with what they had heard or last thing they seen.
    only branch that has always been good it’s cinematography. Or usually is.
