by Rob · January 13, 2020 · LAMB Devours the Oscars, Periodic Features · 2 Comments

The 92nd Academy Awards nominations were announced earlier today, so now we know who will be writing their acceptance speech hoping to deliver it on 9th February to the whole world as they get a golden statue to put on their mantle, but more importantly there’s only one question on everyone’s minds – who won the LAMB’s second annual Oscar Prediction pool? We had 13 entrants, thank you to everyone who played, but there can only be one winner so, without any further ado, here’s the final scores:

49 Points – Meagan
60 Points – Darren
63 Points – Getter
72 Points – Jay and Le Anne
74 Points – Thomas
77 Points – Tony
79 Points – Richard/Troy
80 Points – Rob
83 Points – Howard
85 Points – Doug
88 Points – Aaron

Congratulations to Aaron, and thanks again to everyone for taking part this year – lets all hope our top choices get to ascend the podium in 4 weeks from now and take home GOLD.

Some personal observations –

Two nominees failed to receive ANY predictions from our experts:
Joker – Best Sound Mixing
I’m Standing With You (Breakthrough) – Best Original Song

Four nominees got a singular vote and were correctly guessed by only one of our experts:
Best Film Editing – Jojo Rabbit (Getter)
Best Foreign Language Film – Corpus Christi (Howard)
Best Costume Design – Joker (Meagan)
Best Original Song – I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away (Toy Story 4) (Le Anne)
Best Makeup and Hairstyling – 1917 (Getter)

In addition – Every one of our 13 experts chose Frozen II as a nominee for Best Animated Feature so no one got a perfect score in that category.

In the Best Picture race, Ford v Ferrari got the least amount of votes of the 9 nominees with only 3 of the 13 experts choosing it (Aaron, Doug and Troy)

Keep an eye out here on the LAMB for LOTS of Oscar content over that time including a breakdown of EVERY category and FILMS nominated for Best Picture in addition to an Oscar Pool before the big day arrives!

    Thanks MovieRob for running this activity, it is way too complicated for mere mortals to keep track of. I had fun taking my shots. Congratulations Aaron.

  2. Meagan says:

    Love that I came last, in the words of Amy March ” I want to be great or nothing”. Also just justice for Uncut Gems, how did it get shut out completely!
