Here are my guesses... Best Picture: While a film like The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring doesn't usually appear to be in the academy's wheelhouse, I think it does make the most sense as the runner-up. It led the nominations that year

How Impactful Is The Preferential Ballot At The Oscars When It Comes Down To It?
I agree.Joe Burns
What's it going to take to get rid of the preferential ballot? I think it needs to be done away with as the winner take all system is used everywhere else. It should just be a consensus on who wins for everything and that's it.

Driving Miss Daisy Is A Way Better Film Than Green Book
Add me to the Driving Miss Daisy fan club. It's not a great film but it is watchable and I always gJoe Burns
I didn't hate Green Book but I didn't think it was remarkable at all especially compared with Driving Miss Daisy. Oh and I thought Crash was a deserving winner as well.

I don't think it's a bad performance but really nothing special, I definitely wouldn't have nominateDjoko

Oscar Wins That Upset You The Most
Chiwatel Ejiofor losing Best Actor for 12 Years a Slave. I was pissed.lady_bird
Ronan was my pick on Larson's year. I don't even have Lawrence in my top 5. Mara should have been in the BA. Blanchett, Larson, Mara, Ronan and Theron were my 5 that year. With Blunt, Lawrence, and Rampling as my alternates.

How Did Regina Win Without SAG And Bafta Nods?
Passion. Like we said from the beginning. PASSION.EsOS
I've been harsh on Ms. King during Oscar season but I'm truly glad she has an Oscar. She is a gifted actress and was actually supporting. If Beale Street Could Talk was tragically overlooked in many categories so I'm glad she came through.
