    For example if someone were to upset Dern, which is bloody unlikely but for the sake of this conversation and thread we’ll entertain, it would make more sense to me if two of her rivals prevailed instead of one. Less nasty that way. And any combination works: Bates and Johansson, Robbie and Johansson, Pugh and Robbie, Bates and Pugh.

    idk if I catch your logic here, but I do wonder about the results we could’ve seen if the academy kept the rule of giving out two awards when the runner-up came within 3 votes of the winner

    That’ll be nice because Robbie and Johansson are both deserving

    It would be quite nice, considering how in 92 years of the ceremony there have been under 10 ties. In some years there would have been some very deserving ties.

    It would suck if it happened like the Critics Choice, that every single year they tie and it looks like they do it on purpose.

    I would love for 1917 and Parasite to tie this year! (: That would be amazing! (:

    Ties in Best Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress this year would be wonderful since I don’t like any of the 3 front-runners and that way at least one of the two would be imo deserving!

    The Academy doesn’t allow for ties in Best Picture. I don’t know their exact procedure if there is one in the voting process.

    Nope, I don’t. There should be one winner.

    They should’ve just made La La Land and Moonlight tie.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    I think a tie is less special than a win. At least because it happens once in a blue moon it’s something kinda cool but if it happened even fairly frequently it would just be kind of lame.

    No. La La Land won too many categories to begin with.

    I wish that it would happen instead of that one time where they allowed Streisand to become a member the year she was a freshman nominee to vote for herself hence the reason why she actually tied with Hepburn.

    As exciting as it may be, I can’t see a tie in the cards this year, especially when the acting races are pretty much (sadly) already locked up. I think the greatest likelihood where it could happen is actually in the Best Directing race (possibly between Bong Joon Ho and Tarantino).

    Assuming Katharine Hepburn didn’t vote for herself. Does Ms. Hepburn even bother to vote? Even if Barbra didn’t vote for herself, losing by one vote is close enough, in my opinion, to be considered a tie. I can’t imagine Barbra Streisand not being an Oscar winner for her acting, especially in “Funny Girl”.

    I think if there is a tie in Director it’ll be Mendes and Bong Joon Ho.

    No. It would make the award feel less prestigious.
