Oscars: The race is growing tighter!

The race is growing tighter as some critics overlook certain titles for others. After countless awards in several film festivals, the race is growing tighter as some critics overlook certain titles for others.

Less seasoned in the world of Oscars and festivals, I got really confused when it came to determining how to view each win and nomination. So I converted everything into numbers and found everything much easier to understand. Here are my findings. (*Warning: This is just speculation based on the percent of wins in the nominations listed in the AwardsCircuit predictions and, to make it simpler, I didn’t factor in time and theaters.)

Though , ‘Argo‘ leads the number of wins count, these numbers are only relative if you have a base to compare them. By weighing the number of wins against the number of nominations, a percent can be drawn from the results. That puts ‘Argo‘ at, roughly, 41% as the Golden Globes approach, just behind ‘Amour‘ at 56% and ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ at 51%. ‘Life of Pi‘ follows at 31%, ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ at 29%, ‘Lincoln‘ at 25%, and ‘Les Miserables‘ at 24% .

From the sidelines, ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘, once considered the dark horse of the 2013 Oscars, fits snugly between ‘Beasts‘ and ‘Life of Pi‘ at 47%, continuing to do very well in the film festivals, as one of the most discussed films due to the controversy it raises wherever it goes.

    ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ doesn’t raise controversy because it’s good, it has everyone riled up because it’s such a heap of overrated crap. Overrated, nepotistic scat. WAKE UP HOLLYWOOD! Stop making such abysmal movies and tricking us into seeing them with flashy trailers and false, paid-for reviews! You can lie your way into an Oscar these days, but not out of jail. Crap movie, endless web of lies. Tiresome.
