    I’ve been thinking, whenever there’s an awards show, whether it be the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, Tonys, Golden Globes, SAG, Critics Choice, BAFTA, etc., we never know just how many votes each nominee and winner received in the final voting. We have public access to how many votes political candidates have received, but never for these awards shows. Do you think awards bodies should release past and future voting data for us awards buffs to look at consume. I personally think they should because it would provide some truly valuable evidence as to who truly won in a landslide or who won in a close race. But what do you guys think?

    No, unless suspicion of fraud requires disclosure or something. It would be fun for a while, then it would be less fun than it is now. And aside from entertainment value, I don’t see why they should.

    I say they should be released for historical purposes, just like political elections.

    I did vote yes on a selfish level but I can only imagine how a performer might feel (at least one who is Gaga for winning awards) might feel if they saw themselves in last place or that they lost by a single vote.

    It would be nice to see them release the results for old (50+ yrs) ceremonies at least.

    They should release it after 10 or 20 years, maybe when the artist nominated are dead or too old to care. I don’t know.

    No. But, I would like to see how real are all those “ties” at the Critics’ Choice.

    I think it would be nice to see the ranking results of this year’s Best Picture, because after Parasite, i’m pretty sure the actual runner-up was Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, not 1917 which didn’t even have enough passion to get a split, and thus the Directing win.

    I would kill for an information about which movies / actors finished in say Top 15.

    It would be fun but I feel like this would push overdue narratives even further and I’m not here for it.

    It would be entertaining for awards geeks like us but embarrassing for the nominees.

    I’d secretly love it if they did it like beauty pageants…the fourth runner up is…the third runner up is…(sort of like that thing Amy Poehler organized for the Comedy Actress Emmys that one year.)
