The Academy Awards are Sunday, What Get’s Your Vote for Best Picture? – Survey of the Day
For the 84th time the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will honor the best films of the past year this Sunday at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. For the ninth time Billy Crystal will host the awards which can be seen on ABC at 5 p.m. Mountain on Sunday. Of the 24 awards given out, the “biggest” is for Best Picture. Who should win?
Academy members select nominees in their respective branches (acting, directing, etc.), while all members select the Best Picture nominees. Then the Academy’s entire active and life membership votes to pick winners in each category. That doesn’t mean that the general public always agrees.
Last years winner, “The King’s Speech,” was not an overwhelming favorite among the general public. Many folks thought both “Inception” and “The Social Network” were more deserving.
So, who cares what the Academy thinks, what movie do you think should win?
