    How... Affleck getting nominated is a surprise...

     

    Journey getting snubbed in many categories just proves that players check the reviews before giving it a chance at Oscars... Bad reviews don't mean that everything about the movie is bad, but yeah... Gonna know that for the future and know not to try such a move.

     

    Thanks for holding it Saturday, by the way. Really appreciate it.

    I may have slightly panned Journey but I still nominated it in 5 categories because technically it would be a treat. Not sure what others did or didn't do.

     

    Alpha, the category is now called Production Design, not Art Direction.

    Guys, I only had 5 minutes to compile the list this morning. I'll fix Best Ensemble and the name of Production Design, but calm yourselves down.

     

    I think you need to calm down, lol. It's not like we started a riot or something O.o

    You didn't have to get it finished this morning. The forum wasn't going anywhere.

    Interesting Notes

     

    -The Rise & Fall Of Julius Caesar sets a record for most nominations for a single film, with 18 nods.

    -The Rich & Famous was nominated for Best Picture, but only three other awards.

    -Blankment's horses changed somewhere in the race. He went into Y7 assuming that The Three Month Funeral would be his shot, but it turned out to be A Woman In The Crowd. TMF wasn't even nominated for BP. Something similar happened to Alfred, who was pushing Hollywood instead of The Curious Incident, which surprised in some mid-level categories.

    -Spaghetti gained redemption after the studio humiliated itself with "The Academy," earning two best picture nominations.

    -Amulet earned 4 nominations, a record for Alpha.

    -There was much buzz and outcry over the snub of Garret Hedlund for Risk Management. This is strange because Daniel Day Lewis and Joseph Gordon Levitt, both prior stars of the Coen Bros' Corruption Trilogy, both won Best Actor, let alone were nominated for it. Maybe it was the third word in the name.

    Related to Garret Hedlung's snub. I think he wasn't nominated because his role felt a lot simpler than Day Lewis/Levitt's roles. I don't know. It felt lighter than the others... Somewhat like Eisenberg's The Social Network performance, but weaker than that.

    Uhh, also Alpha, I did my own little recount on Original Score and I got the following results:

     

    Desplat - 20

    Wintory - 20

    Giacchino - 19

    Horner - 17

    Howard - 14

     

    These might not be totally accurate, but doing your own recount would be appreciated...

    Guess I should stick with Adapted Screenplays. :P

    My results were pretty accurate. I don't know what your talking about.

    Really? You don't even consider a recount even in something as important as the Oscar nominees? 

     

    Whatever, since you refuse to recount, I did myself and got the same results. Citations are in the spoiler tags.

     

    Deplat - 20

    Wintory - 20

    Giacchino - 19

    Horner - 18

    Howard - 13

     

     

    Horner - 5+2+3+5+2+1

    Giacchino - 4+4+1+3+4+3

    Howard - 3+1+2+1+1+5

    Wintory - 2+3+4+2+5+4

    Deplat - 1+5+5+4+3+2

     

    Spaghetti:

    1. James Horner

    2. Michael Giacchino

    3. James Newton Howard

    4. Austin Wintory

    5. Alexandre Desplat

     

    Blankments:

     

    1. Alexandre Desplat, A Woman in the Crowd
    2. Michael Giacchino, Amulet
    3. Austin Wintory, Journey
    4. James Horner, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
    5. James Newton Howard, Heavy Rain

     

    Hiccup

    1. Alexandre Desplat, A Woman in the Crowd

     

    2. Austin Wintory, Journey
    3. James Newton Howard, Heavy Rain
    4. James Horner, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
    5. Michael Giacchino, Amulet
     

     

    Alfred

    1. James Horner

    2. Alexandre Desplat

    3. Michael Giacchino

    4. Austin Wintory

    5. James Newton Howard

     

    Alpha:

     

    1. Austin Wintory, Journey

    2. Michael Giacchino, Amulet

    3. Alexandre Desplat, A Woman In The Crowd

    4. James Horner, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

    5. James Newton Howard, Heavy Rain

     

    riczhang:

     

    1. James Newton Howard

    2. Austin Wintory

    3. Michael Giacchino

    4. Alexandre Desplat

    5. James Horner

     

    Now by tiebreaking thanks to highest placement of either, Wintory 3-3 Desplat, it doesn't break the tie. As such, there should be six nominees in Original Score, with Wintory and Desplat and without Giacchino.

    I think Alpha assumed that Numbers forgot to put, er, numbers, on his score nods, but had them in his ideal order, and if that was the case, Amulet got the nod. 

     

    That's true... Numbers needs to clarify though, since to me it doesn't look like those were intentional votes...

    I simply forgot to put numbers in. It should be obvious that my ordering was intentional since my ordering is not the same as the order in the original tiebreaker post.

    The first time I looked at it, I thought I read the first two as the same order in the original post, so I just stopped there.

     

    In that case, I apologize to Alpha; although I don't think you shouldn't shrugged off my call for a recount...
