  1. That makes sense. Not sure how hard this is to do and like if it's too complicated like oh well. But Sasha Stone from awardsdaily runs a simulated oscar ballot each year, and how she displays it is like she displays the original allocation and then like each redistributed result until a winner is determined. Like each column is an iteration and the movies are in rows. Not sure how hard that is to do...
  2. I think Silence had a very high passion vote. Like not a lot of people saw it on the forums but everyone that did (or like a good portion) ranked it number one. Also, can we get the point tabulations for the movies? Curious to see how close some of the categories were .
  3. Eh. I've seen the Trump press conference and that post was still the most unhinged thing this year.
  4. No. Jackie shouldn't be considered a bio pic and to call it such is doing it a disservice and imo quite insulting. This is a film in the same vein as The Queen. It is a character study of a short period of time that fundamentally defined / changed who they are. I think that a Jackie Bio Pic with the cursory overview of the life of what quite frankly in the grand scheme of things is an ordinary lady with modest abilities wouldn't give the same depth or carry the same impact as delving into the week following JFK's death where it we saw a different Jackie struggle in the world and to try and define the legacy of not just JFK but more importantly herself.
  5. Okay I was concerned mine might be too long but I think it'll be fine.
  6. Wait I thought I was doing Silence as well? Also mainly cus I've mapped out what I wanted to say for Silence already.
  7. I think that like if you're like very against a movie then you're better off ranking someone that you don't like as much higher on your list than your actual faves on the off chance that your actual faves are strong enough to not get redistributed so that at least you've voted for someone with a realistic shot of winning.
  8. Thanks. I feel like the distinction actually makes a big impact in terms of voting strategy.
  9. Question, for the voting are we doing it AMPAS style where only your first vote counts and then votes get redistributed until a nominee has 50% + 1 of the votes or are we doing like a weighted system where your first choice gets like 5 points, second choice 4 points, and so on?
  10. Can we write more than one? If not, I'll take Silence.
  11. Do y'all still need writeups? Preferably Silence or Manchester, but I'm okay with doing any of them except La La Land.
  12. I do believe they wrote that episode specifically for her though.
  13. Oh didn't anticipate that. Checked the Toronto screenings and it all seemed okay. I do expect the Pacific Northwest to be hampered though. Battling a snow storm today and tomorrow.
  14. Arrivial will mostly likely win b/c of the nominee that also's nominated in BP always wins (with one exception I think ever). And we don't really have an Ex Machina in contention this year.
