    I agree with most of those predictions, though I’m not sure if Mary Poppins was truly the runner-up in the 1964 Best Picture race. Sure, it had the most nominations of any film that year and won the second most wins of the night, so it does appear to be a viable option. Though Becket probably had more of a prestige factor. It tied with My Fair Lady for the second most nominations, won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture-Drama and the WGA for Best Written American Drama.

    Andrew Carden probably has the answer to this.

    Before the preferential ballot, was it just a straight up vote for Best Pic? If so, it’d be interesting if the runner-ups would have been the winners if the Best Picture winner wasn’t in the group because just because a movie was runner-up doesn’t mean the people who voted for the BP winner would have voted for the movie that came in second. Obviously, it depends on how much the runner-up lost by and if there was a viable third or even fourth choice.

    He already covered the 2010 Oscar race. The subject of that episode was The Social Network, which swept through all the critics awards before the industry had their say, which was The King’s Speech.

    I’m not sure how close Black Swan might’ve been that year given how polarizing it was coupled with the fact that it was not nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

    People were quiet when walking out after Black Swan ended. It is a very divisive movie.
