Day 91 - How the Voters Voted

Day 91.

So I've been on somewhat on an awards show binge recently, what with the Julie/Julia Awards on Saturday the and Oscar liveblog yesterday (Not to mention the awesome Grammy win for Arcade Fire. Boom! Instant hipster credibility!). But the thing that's always bugged me about these awards shows is that they never release the voting data. Who voted for what? How much did so-and-so win by? These are the questions that actually interest me. So that's why I decided to pull back the curtain for the only awards show that I control--The Julie/Julia Awards.



Some observations:

  • Just the Julia Parts from Julie & Julia wins in a landslide for Best Picture. Everyone pretty much agrees on this. How about a director's cut, Nora Ephron?
  • Stanley ekes out JOHNNY SPARKS in Best Actor by one measly vote. You people are all idiots! The one time you get to vote for JOHNNY SPARKS at an awards show and you go for the Pedo-Tucc? Shame on you all.
  • To all those people who were scared that the multiple Meryl Streeps would split the vote, somehow letting Amy Adams get the win--you are idiots. This is Meryl Goddamn Streep we're talking about. Of course she is going to win. Also, I appreciated all those ballots that distinguished which Meryl they voted for e.g. "the third one" and "make sure you count this under the second Meryl Streep"
  • Also, not all of you voted in all categories, which made some stats weird. Learn how to fill out a ballot, assholes. Are you going to vote for just the president in 2012? And not all the little government officials? Oh wait, that's probably what I'm going to do...
  • Apparently, 15% of you thinks Chris Messina resembles Mark Ruffalo more than Mark Ruffalo does. Strange, I thought it'd be much higher.
  • People love Meryl Streep sex scenes. All other movies should make note of this.
  • People also love my chocolate pie creme filling.
  • And stiff cocks.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed that little awards show vacation. Tomorrow, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming with a brand new R.A.T. Fuck, I'm actually going to have to talk about this movie again.

  1. Idea for the coming weeks:
    Certainly you're running out of actors for Random Actor Tuesday. How about Random Crew Tuesday, where you talk about the D.P., or the Production Designers, or the Costume Designers, or even the Best Boy Grip. I'm sure there's something on IMDB about most of them!
