Next Best Picture Votes On The 93rd Academy Awards

By Cody Dericks 

One of the more frustrating aspects of covering the Oscar race as a mere observer is the fact that we can’t actually cast a vote for the biggest award in film. So, in keeping with tradition, the Next Best Picture team filled out our annual “if I voted for the Oscars” fantasy ballot, and the results can be found below. For a true blast from the past, check out our choices for the 2018 and 2019 Oscars. We will be revealing the community selected winners later this week.

The votes were tabulated in the same manner as the actual Academy Awards – Best Picture was decided using a ranked preferential ballot and all other categories went to the nominee with the most total number of votes. Now, onto our winners…
