Winners Scoreboard

How I did, and how I racked up against the critics

I got 8/8 in the top 8 categories, 18/23 overall - a solid showing!

 

Here's how I scored against 30 "experts" from Gold Derby:

 

IN THE TOP 8 CATEGORIES:

none beat me (of course), 9 tied me, and I beat 21

 

THE FULL 23

14 beat me, 5 tied me, & 11 did worse (pretty par)

WHAT I MISSED:

 

BEST FILM EDITING: I thought ACE Eddie Award winner King Richard would take it, riding a late surge; but alas, Dune won almost every technical award it was up for...

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY:  I thought Power of the Dog would take ONE of the many technical awards it was up for (and I thought that would be here), but man - it was a straight up Dune show...

BEST SONG:  I never get song right... I thought Encanto would land Lin Manuel his EGOT, but alas - Bond winds again... 

BEST ANIMATED SHORT:  I should've had more faith in voters to pick the best one (winner Windshield Wiper, easily my fave), but I expected it to go to the "typical straight-down-the-middle cookie-cutter" one with Robin Robin.

BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT:  Queen of Basketball was considered the front-runner, but I had a feeling Audible would ride the deaf wave with CODA and take it (plus I thought it was more artistic), but I was wrong...

As for my OSCAR POOL:

WE HAD A TIE!!!!  Between old college friends Jon Hopper and Tim Cahill, taking it to the tiebreaker, which leaves...

***JON HOPPER AS OUR WINNER!!!***

(long time caller, first time winner)

He only missed Animated Short!!!!  WOW.

Congrats, Leo!  He wins $75 from the 15 people that entered! (myself included)

'TIL NEXT YEAR!  Gonna try to do a better job of getting the word out next year, and make the pot BIGGER!

(Just been busyyyy....)
