    Ties are near impossible these days with such a huge membership. The last one in decades was in Sound Editing, a category that definitely used to have less voting quorum than Best Actor (voters are not obligated to vote in every category).

    So now the theory is that voters are voting for Boseman to avoid a race war and if that fails that the academy will falsify results to avoid the race war? WTF?

    I’m still predicting Boseman (in order to win my pool), but after watching “The Father” last night, holy hell did Anthony Hopkins break my heart. Just a banner year for this category after a lot of bum years.

    you have the NERVE to say you hope people don’t scream out racism if the front-runner, who would happen to be only the FIFTH black man in the history of the Academy Awards to be honored as Best Actor, loses but then you say the Academy would cheat to let him win a tie with against a white actor… You could’ve simply said “I hope Anthony Hopskins wins because I enjoyed his performance better” but you had to bring in a stupid ass conspiracy theory to justify a theoretical tie simply because you the prefer the white actor and can’t FATHOM that the Academy would be fair when it comes to the voting… And you don’t want “other” posters screaming racism…. The muthafucking irony

    Please take a walk outside and get some fresh air.

    the “oh I love Chadwick, but I prefer X performance” feeling is real

    Boseman benefits from the fact that this year that feeling is divided between Hopkins and Ahmed

    Huns, Hopkins is going to upset on Sunday.

    Glenn Close = Chadwick Boseman

    Olivia Colman = Anthony Hopkins

    And that’s why British people are built like this darling.

    Xenophobia is gross and weird. Don’t be a weirdo.

    How the hell did you get from what I was saying to what I’m saying?

    How did you get from “If Hopkins wins by a small margin, they could give them a tie.” to “ Race war”?

    Jesus, dialogue is dead.

    I already replied earlier to why this has nothing to do with racism. It has to do with how not giving it to someone whose widow is in the room might look. Is it so hard to imagine that if  there are something like 20 votes between Hopkins and Boseman, they might just give them the tie?

    Also not thinking people should consider Chadwick losing racist when every other category is won by POC is somehow racist?Please explain that.

    This isn’t about race, or at least it’s not the leading factor. The leading factor is the academy wanting to honor someone who died at a relatively young age.

    If that’s a joke, it’s a bad joke. Delete.

    Also why do people keep interpreting this as me saying Boseman would be “cheating”. Honestly I would love to see them tie. If Boseman(or anyone by that matter) lost by less than 50 votes, I think a tie is quite reasonable. It’s a shame the academy isn’t doing ties more often.
