Dear Academy, make this ceremony exciting again! Make voting in all categories preferential. It will give us exciting winners. Or even better make it exclusive, do not let anyone vote for all categories. Make it voting by branch. But the most important thing is make it all preferential. Who’s with me?February 26, 2017 at 10:17 pm #1202024587
If this happened, we wouldn’t have Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence winning.February 26, 2017 at 10:26 pm #1202024606
I agree completely. We could’ve had Isabelle Huppert vs. Natalie Portman, literally either or would’ve been the worlds greatest choice. We could’ve avoided ugly wins like Goop or Jlaw.
The popularity train route of awarding people seriously needs to die out and give the people who deserve an Oscar a chance to win. Just because someone is young and
hotpopular doesn’t mean they deserve an Academy Award.
Damn. it’s time for them to clean house and start from scratch.February 26, 2017 at 10:26 pm #1202024607
If this happened, we wouldn’t have Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence winning.
I wouldn’t be so sure of that. Also having only the branches voting for the winners sets up a whole new set of potential problems, like cronyism.
So let it be just preferential and see what results we get for couple years.February 26, 2017 at 10:29 pm #1202024611
Um, no, lol.February 26, 2017 at 10:30 pm #1202024616

Emma stone probably would have still won, Portman and Huppert were too cold for many voters. The only people who really hated Stone were idiots on this forum.February 26, 2017 at 10:45 pm #1202024651

Absolutely not true. If you talk to people who weren’t brainwashed by that stupid movie you’d see there were more people who liked the other actresses who were nominated, and two who were snubbed (ahem: AMY ADAMS AND TARAJI P HENSON).February 26, 2017 at 11:30 pm #1202024733
Emma’s acting was light compared to other nominees but her role was demanding. She sing, dance and act.

Preferential votes would still have Emma winning, she got the popular vote (the most ranked 1st). I doubt Emma was on #4/5 when Meryl and Ruth are there with films we forgot existed.
