I totally agree.

Maybe because the Academy knew the backlash they'd get for the Best Picture choice, several black people won: Regina King, Ruth Carter (finally), Hannah Beachler, Peter Ramsey, Mahershala Ali, and Spike Lee/Kevin Willmott.

What say you all: did the Academy get it right?
I cannot believe that FIRST REFORMED didn't get nominated. It would have been my choice for Best Picture.

Out of the pictures nominated...I would have preferred ROMA.

Do folks have any suggestions for next year's challenge? I think I am going to put the Checklist in Alpha order since the Oscar Database lists the categories in Alpha order. 2018- will be added to the checklist years.

It doesn't look like too many people took advantage of the Razzie or the Movie That Should Have Been Nominated checklist categories so I can nix those.
Agreed. Just count the votes. Why complicate it?

As for the Razzie and fantasy allowance, I kind of just forgot about it. I was obsessed with seeing the actual nominees, but I think I would do it in the future. Why not let it breath a little and see if it catches on eventually?

Agreed! I would have liked to see First Reformed do much better! And there were several choices better than GB, Roma tops among them for sure.

I'm going to choose the winner this year...it'll be from a combination of lots of titles watched and a varied mix of titles, too.

Stay tuned!

even though ShortsTV made available the Live Action / Animated shorts just a few days prior to the Oscar telecast last year, this year, they didn't make them available til AFTER .... [grumble, grumble] oh well.
