We did this last year on the Facebook group and it was pretty fun. I've used the same scoring system to make things easier for myself. Basically, just copy the ballot below and make your guesses. You can edit/delete it as much as you want until the actual winners are announced. Then, add your points up and we'll see who wins!

I am not good at predicting these things, so most of my decisions are random.

I still haven't seen a lot of these so my guesses are just based on what I've read and pure awesome instinct.

It can and has, seems like it's only when something really strikes a chord with the American public though.

The foreign films nominated for Best Picture: Grand Illusion, Z, The Emigrants, Cries and Whispers, The Postman, Life is Beautiful, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Letters from Iwo Jima.

But Letters From Iwo Jima is not really a foreign film. So, the last 85 years, only 7 foreign films have been nominated as Best Picture!

It's mostly a celebration of English speaking films. Hollywood, really.

It is a foreign language film which is what the foreign film category is for the Oscars.

The fact they very occasionally put a foreign language film in Best Picture just confuses things. They should stop pretending it's anything other than what it is and say English language only for that category..

Agreed. It's sort of preposterous.

The fact that the Academy occasionally puts a foreign language film in the Best Picture category is probably to show that it is in fact intended as "Best Picture (any language)" and not "Best Picture in English".

As for foreign films winning the Best Picture award, that has happened at least twice: Laurence Olivier's Hamlet and The King's Speech are both English films. My Left Foot was nominated for Best Picture and is from Ireland.

Lots of these are guesses. Haven't really seen many of the best actor nominated performances. So therefore, I voted for someone who I hope doesn't win. But some people say he will. :wacko:
