​If The Next Best Picture Team Voted For The 2019 Oscars

By Cody Dericks 

As this divisive and often headache-inducing awards season comes to a close, a recurring phrase uttered all year among the team at Next Best Picture was “if I voted for the Oscars…”

So, I decided to see what would happen not only if the Next Best Picture staff were all Oscar voters, but if we were the only Oscar voters. I polled our writers, and even did the famously-complicated preferential-style tally for Best Picture, just like the Academy.

​I now present the Academy Awards if they were decided exclusively by our team!
