Why is “editing” considered so important in the Oscar race?
It has the highest correlation of BP winners with being nominated in the category historically.Also,endaugust
^ Some directors (especially after a long and arduous shoot, where they need to take a break) would allow the editor to do an "assembly cut" (a very rough cut) while they're resting.They would then work together on fine cutting the film. Also,

IMDb: UK, 7 February 2014.Laactingnyc

Any chance Julia Roberts will end up like Kate Winslet in The Reader?
Zooey the Dreamer
If an actor receives votes in both categories, he/she is nominated in the category where he/she receJackson B
I do agree after seeing AOC again last night... Julia is lead to me. The way the film is edited and esp the ending, makes it Barbras (julias) story. But the academy isnt going to place Meryl in a supporting catergory very easily these d

No SAG award for Emma Thompson
I'm sure they will receive them soon. Although i loved Thompson in Saving Mr. Banks this race is betGabriel
Sandra is popular sure, but I still think Blanchett will win everything. If Adele is nominated for the BAFTA, she might give Cate a run for her money, but even then Blanchett will probably still end up winning.

Was there always Oscar campaigning?
Before the studio system went down, either a manager or agent or something to that affect campaginedMilk Money
I'm pretty sure that Henry Rodgers is the man you're referring to. Warner Bros. and Joan Crawford first hired him to engineer her Oscar campaign for Mildred Pierce. His work was so effective that Olivia requested his services the next yea

Does the way they count ballots at the Oscars still allow for ties?
Well there was a tie this year for Best Achievemnt in Sound Editing with "Zero Dark Thiry" and "SkyfScottferguson
The four ties since the Academy had multi-thousand members include only 2 in which all members voted - this year's and the Streisand/Hepburn one. The other two were in shorts categories, when maybe 100-200 members voted (as was the case until recentl

Performances that won all 4 Top Critics group awards
The NBR awards are a joke. They aren't even film critics. Below is the list of actors/actresses thatBrokenFan
Totally disagree. I'm one of those people not charmed but annoyed by her performance. I wouldn't have minded her being nominated but no way she's top three for that year's nominees.

Best Actress 1981
Meryl Streep was due to winning the Golden Globe Drama and LA Film Critcs. Glenda Jackson, even thouArmy Of Me
Keaton was fantastic in Reds and I would have supported another victory for her. Sarandon was strong but I think she was likely a distant fifth in regards to the voting. Streep was great, but not really among her best performances. Mason was good

Do mini series actors submit episodes?
No, they do not.Atypical
No, in the telefilm categories, the voting panels get the entire works of the nominees regardless of length. So in theory, there's more material to judge from the miniseries contenders than the made for television film contenders, and that maybe give

Was Sally Field the first actor to cross over from TV and win an Oscar?
I couldn't tell you if she was the first, but I imagine loads have done it since. Don't most actorsAtypical
Denzel was a television regular on "St. Elsewhere" for six years before his first Oscar nomination for "Cry Freedom" near the end of that run. He did some concurrent film work during that arc as well.

Hannibal and Bates Motel!!
They both should at least do well at next year's Saturn Awards. Why doesn't Syfy air them?Irishmovielover4ever
This is such an easy choice to make of which show is better. Bates Motel is laughable to how bad it always has been and while I can respect the performance Vera Farmiga is giving it's just not that special because of the horrible writing the show has

Horror shows at the Emmys
You could count some Twin Peaks wins in 1990/1991 to the Horror category...adamunc
Do you count The X-Files as horror? It won Actress and Writing in the major categories and got a few series nominations.
