    guys, make it simply like this and it will be shown.

    Lincoln is on first place in BP, BD, Best Actor, Best Sup Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.

    worked for BP mecid but can’t get it to work for the others

    “Lincoln is on first place in BP, BD, Best Actor, Best Sup Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.”

    Bummer! I’m afraid the Academy will follow suit, let the steamroll begin :(

    Can you post the links plase? I can’t figure out the acting :/

  10. Tero Heikkinen
    January 9, 2013

    Life of Pi missing out on BP nomination is soooo “only on AD”. We often act like we know better than AMPAS, and yet, this happens :D

  11. mecid
    January 9, 2013

    so, some doesn’t work.

  12. Gage Creed
    January 9, 2013

    “No Results Found” is unbeatable this year! Will win everything for sure!

  13. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    I don’t understand the redistribution rates differential between Lawrence and Chastain. Isn’t Lawrence’s rate supposed to be higher than Chastain’s since she has more votes???

  14. Jim
    January 9, 2013

    Rob, thank you so much for doing this! Just two questions: I voted through my phone, so just to make sure my votes counted… The movies appearing in the Best Picture document are only #1 choices, right?

    And after all the support in the comments, Rebel Wilson got no votes at all? Or are those only #1 votes as well?

  15. Tim
    January 9, 2013

    Eddie Redmayne put up quite a fight.

  16. Josh
    January 9, 2013

    Am I blind or is Ann Dowd completely not even on the entire list for supporting actress. that is a huge shock.

  17. McGregor
    January 9, 2013

    Very content with these nominations! Happy for Hugh Jackman. I’m pretty surprised Ezra snuck in there, and LOVE that Emily Blunt came SO close. Very interesting to see how the system works.

  18. Zach
    January 9, 2013

    OMG Pi snub.
    Where is Anne Dowd? I voted for her, but more like #3 because I thought everyone here loved her and resented Anne Hathaway and Sally Field! Ugh.

  19. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    Anne Hathaway crushes the competition with 46.85% of the BSA votes, this is almost twice as much as Jlaw in the Best Actress race. That’s quite unexpected on a site like AD where readers are often put off by loud frontrunners, I guess she really has it in the bag.

  20. David
    January 9, 2013

    Think some of these are a no go esp the guy for holy rollers

  21. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    And the funniest part is I didn’t even vote for her even though I’m a Les Mis supporter!

  22. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    I’m starting to wonder if peeps really voted for their own preferences or tried to predict the Oscars. Well Academy members tend do the same thing anyway: choose their favorite pick among the frontrunners.

  23. Robert A.
    January 9, 2013

    For some reason I’m still not able to view the results for Actress, Original Screenplay, and Editing. All the other categories I’m able to see.

  24. Josh
    January 9, 2013

    Holy crap look how far down Alan Arkin is?! I like him in Argo but have always thought it was such a small role and didn’t get how he was a ‘lock’ by so many. Maybe he doesn’t make the cut…

  25. mecid
    January 9, 2013

    Master snubbed Screenplay.

  26. Reno
    January 9, 2013

    We should start calling this the Awards Daily Film Enthusiasts Awards (ADFEAs). The top 5 are the nominees, the first placers are the eventual winners. Sasha should send plaques and trophies to the honorees.

  27. Tero Heikkinen
    January 9, 2013

    Anyone care to type the 5 actors in each category here? My computer does not like clicking any No Results and I don’t want to play wizard by typing my own url’s.

  28. Alfredo
    January 9, 2013

    I cry foul play on the Zero Dark Thirty nomination…I don’t believe enough people saw it in order for it to be nominated!

  29. Rob Y.
    January 9, 2013

    I need to rerun the Supporting Actress Categories. It appears that Ann Dowd did not show up on the list. She only received 4 first round ballots. It is doubtful that she would have made an impact on these results.

  30. Rob Y
    January 9, 2013

    An updated list of links can be found here.

    ANd no Helen Mirren?

  33. LSUduck
    January 9, 2013

    Original screenplay and editing still don’t work :( Also, it definitely seems like people voted like the academy at least Picture wise seeing how Les Mis was 3rd despite the hatred on here, ZDT isn’t wide till this week and Amour is hardly playing anywhere either. Hmm.

  34. LSUduck
    January 9, 2013

    Scratch that about the links not working. Thanks Rob!

  35. Christophe
    January 9, 2013


    Original Screenplay

    The Master

  36. Tero Heikkinen
    January 9, 2013

    Thanks, France.

    Jessica Chastain is very high considering that maybe 8% of us had seen ZDT, so people were mostly predicting the Oscars, I can see. I voted for what I had seen. Like Ezra Miller, who got in, but here it was also a bit of a consolation for fucking it up with Kevin (last year’s 3rd best film).

  37. Tero Heikkinen
    January 9, 2013

    Or 2011′s 3rd best, to be exact.

  38. david leary
    January 9, 2013

    I’m shocked no juno temple she didn’t even make the list for best actress I voted for her

  39. david leary
    January 9, 2013

    I to only voted for what I seen

  40. Alfredo
    January 9, 2013

    Wooo for Looper in Screenplay…and poor TDKR…at least it got an editing nomination…and yes people definitely voted for what they thought the academy would vote for…so in other words we are no different from the real academy in that we vote for things we haven’t seen either

  41. Mike
    January 9, 2013

    I’m shocked Ann Dowd didn’t make it. It seemed like so many here were voting for her.

    Yay for Ezra Miller and Stephen Chbosky. I would love if the Academy would recognize both tomorrow, but I’ll take just a nomination for the screenplay. Would be much worse if it was snubbed in every single category.

  42. Andrew
    January 9, 2013

    interested to see Judi dench’s performance in Beasts get some votes- it was a very subtle one lol

    interested to see that the readers here follow the usual groupthink rules; nominate the things that everyone else is nominating, including things you have not seen. ZDT an example for many

  43. Aragorn
    January 9, 2013
  44. PJ
    January 9, 2013

    Cool to see Ezra Miller make the cut!

  45. keifer
    January 9, 2013

    I still say “Lincoln” is the most boring film of the year.

    Overall, overrated and overnominated. There are much better films in various categories that are worth mentioning and are more deserving (as some of the results here so indicate by some pretty smart filmgoers who aren’t sheep).

    I remember last year when the director of “Drive” came in on AD’s list as No. 3 and Albert Brooks from the same filme came in No. 2(I may be off here – simply relying on memory), but both Nichlas Winding Refn and Albert Brooks never received AMPAS nominations (and that was really a shame).

    I suspect a Lincoln sweep this year, resulting in another major “yawn” from me over the Oscar show.

    I like the old days, when there were surprises. Here’s hoping for a nomination for Denis Levant from “Holy Motors”. That would make me happy.

  46. John
    January 9, 2013

    It’s a shame Judi Dench didn’t make the cut for Beasts of the Southern Wild.

  47. danemychal
    January 9, 2013

    Screw you guys; it was my ballot, so I voted for it if I wanted to vote for it. ZDT I’m not seeing until Friday, but I can’t remember the last time I didn’t love the critical consensus favorite of the year, so I ranked it somewhere between 3-5 in my BP vote (don’t remember which spot but Lincoln and Argo were 1 and 2).

  48. david leary
    January 9, 2013

    Did Bill Murray make the list for best actor I didn’t see him on their. Alfredo I only voted for what I saw that’s why I voted for juno temple for best actress for little birds Colin Farrell for seven psychopaths and Liam neesom for the grey. I voted for Kay panabaker for supporting actress for little birds as well as others

  49. Matt
    January 9, 2013

    I will never understand the unrelenting praise for Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    It was a fly-by-night coming of age story that followed every rule in the book. Lerman’s performance was serviceable – not spectacular, and Watson can’t handle more than a line of dialogue.

  50. Josh
    January 9, 2013

    ^ No one cares that you don’t understand.

  51. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    Tomorrow these people will be Oscar nominees…

    ALL OF THEM!!! well, three of them already are but tomorrow they’ll have one more nomination. One more day! One more nom! One day more!

  52. BedBath&Beyonce
    January 9, 2013

    Boring…I expected more original picks rather than going with conventional award show wisdom.

  53. Gregoire
    January 9, 2013

    I suspect ‘The Master’ is this year’s ‘Drive’, at least when it comes to AD consensus.

  54. Evan
    January 9, 2013

    I know everyone is trying to explain it away with the excuse that people tried to vote like the Academy would, but I think the real lesson of the lack of out-of-the-box picks is that if you get enough disparate opinions together, the nominees will look more and more like those of the Academy.

    To me, the biggest surprise is seeing The Life of Pi without a BP nomination.

  55. January 9, 2013

    Fucking hell, just four ballots mentioning Ann Dowd? I put her on my ballot for Leading Actress, although not in first. Shiiiiit.

    Supporting Actor is a massive cock-up. DiCaprio in third, Waltz in sixth? De Niro? Miller? Not up for that rly. Also BOO HISS Bradley Cooper. Awards Daily readers have such shit collective taste. Hear hear, Tero. The Life of Pi miss is a disgrace. The fanboys are beating it down. Can’t wait for AMPAS to show us all up big style.

    I’m shocked no juno temple she didn’t even make the list for best actress I voted for her

    Your Juno Temple boner is ruling your brain boyo.

  56. Daveylow
    January 9, 2013

    I didn’t get to vote but there are two films on the best picture list I would never have voted for.

  57. Christophe
    January 9, 2013

    consider yourself lucky there are 8 films on the bp list i wouldn’t have voted for. and I guess the 2 I did vote for might be the ones you’re talking abt.

  58. Manuel
    January 9, 2013

    Best Picture in ranking order:
    Zero Dark 30

  59. Kevin Landry
    January 9, 2013

    Holy crap, Denis Lavant got nominated for Holy Motors!

    He’s my top NGNG for this year, now if he could just make it to the actual nominations…

  60. Chris
    January 9, 2013

    Please explain to me if this is legit or if you guys are making the assumptions this it what’s going to happen.

  61. Bryce Forestieri
    January 9, 2013

    JUST CORROBORATED you guys, Tim Hooper will not be nominated for Best Director tomorrow morning. Phew!!

  62. david leary
    January 9, 2013

    Hey paddy mullholland I don’t have a boner for juno temple I thought she gave a good performance and deserved some consideration did u even see the movie?

  63. Tim
    January 9, 2013

    Bryce – I don’t need whatever inside information you may possess to know that Tim Hooper, whoever he is, will not be among the nominees tomorrow.

  64. Andrew
    January 9, 2013

    Bryce, what corroboration? the nominations are kept under strict lock and key

  65. Christophe
    January 9, 2013


  66. January 9, 2013

    Hey paddy mullholland I don’t have a boner for juno temple I thought she gave a good performance and deserved some consideration did u even see the movie?

    Hey david leary I was joking good to know you got it no I didn’t see the movie but I plan to I likes your punctuation kthxbye!!!!!!11!!!1!

  67. January 9, 2013

    Why these links?
    It doesn’t goes well…

    January 9, 2013

    I’ve seen 3 Masterpieces in 2012: Zero Dark Thirty, Life of Pi and Amour.

  69. david leary
    January 9, 2013

    Hey paddy mullholland all I was trying to do was point out how good the movie and her performance was every year hurt are great performances that are giving that don’t get seened or don’t get enough attention

  70. Alfredo
    January 9, 2013

    @Danemychal you are absolutely right…it was your ballot and you had every right to vote for whatever you wanted. What some of us are pointing out is that you must have not been the only person to vote for films you did not watch. Hey it’s cool, I’m sure that’s the way many of the Academy members do business as well.

    This is about the 3rd…or 4th…I can’t remember – year that we do this and I get more disappointed about some of our choices than the Academy’s. Mostly because I feel we’re smarter than the academy and we are real cinephiles but then we go ahead and vote just like them…

  71. rufussondheim
    January 9, 2013

    Well, maybe some people voted for ZDT, maybe most didn’t see it yet. Who knows?

    But when every one does see ZDT I suspect it will win.

  72. Mike
    January 9, 2013

    I don’t think it’s right to vote for it if you haven’t seen it. You might not love it as much as you think you will. I think ZDT looks fantastic (same for Silver Linings Playbook), but I haven’t been able to see them yet so I didn’t pick them. I went with the movies I have seen.

  73. Bryce Forestieri
    January 9, 2013

    Yo Tim Hooper reacted like a “mad dog” when he was informed earlier today that his name will not be mentioned tomorrow. Several “important” people just short of promised him that he was in.

  74. Akumax
    January 9, 2013

    “Bryce Forestieri
    Yo Tim Hooper reacted like a “mad dog” when he was informed earlier today that his name will not be mentioned tomorrow. Several “important” people just short of promised him that he was in.”

    can you please use your imagination in another way, less silly and more funny?

  75. steve50
    January 9, 2013

    I’m pretty surprised by the “whitebread” results, guys – did we need a vote to see how much we resemble AMPAS? They may actually have a better list, come tomorrow.

    - and here’s no way everyone had seen Zero Dark Thirty at the time of the balloting, but, whatever. I voted for what I saw and live happily in the purple on the charts.

  76. Ann Dowd
    January 9, 2013

    No prediction for Ann Down?

    Some ones are going to get so upset here….

  77. Bryce Forestieri
    January 9, 2013


    LES MIZ police?

  78. Bryce Forestieri
    January 9, 2013

    Can’t really say who go in instead of Hooper, but rest assured he’s one of the worthy ones. Tim Hooper calls himself an “epic filmmaker”; publicly and privately

  79. January 9, 2013

    You guys do this every year. You predict instead of doing your own thing. :P

    Anyhoo, I think it’s mostly the lurkers and not the commenters. Because you guys were bananas for LIFE OF PI and it didn’t make it.

    I was completely wrong about ARGO, ZERO DARK THIRTY, and LINCOLN having to share from the same pool of voters. Clearly there are just more of the kind of people who like that stuff.

  80. Tim
    January 9, 2013

    Bryce – Although I don’t think a Hooper nom is extremely likely, I have to think that if you were actually as close to Tom Hooper as you imply that you are, you would know his first name.

  81. Katie
    January 9, 2013

    I think the greatest use you could get out of these results is when the Oscar noms are announced, you can say, “See! Even you bastards voted for the pretty much the same things. Quit your incessant bitching!”

  82. unlikely hood
    January 9, 2013

    If Life of Pi misses tomorrow, this thing is gonna look BRILLIANT.

  83. Daniel B.
    January 9, 2013

    As ZDT isn’t released widely, I am very interested how it got its second place here. Maybe each one of you has seen it. Even here we have “herd voting” and at the same time we blame AMPAS for being influenced easily. I doubt that more than 50% of the ZDT votes are form people taht haven’t seen the movie (they think Bigelow is cool and Chastain deserves to be nominated – probably from the “screaming scene” that was on Youtube. At the same time almost all of us love Life of Pi and it still missed.

  84. DBibby
    January 10, 2013

    Wonderful to see Denis Lavant make the cut, but I’m equally horrified at the Life of Pi snub. Did people not see the film? It’s stunning!

  85. Rob Y.
    January 10, 2013


    I have spent about 8 hours trying to figure out the Ann Dowd situation. And I uncovered a larger issue. A number of you have been puzzled about favorite actresses not showing up in either Best Actress lists. Ann Dowd is the best example. Earlier I had indicated that only 4 votes went for Ms. Dowd. Well I was wrong there, in a BIG WAY.

    Ms. Dowd earned 48 first round votes. As I was researching what has happened, it appears that some data did not get switched over from when I worked on the Actors, at least Microsoft Excel did not transfer them properly. Excel was looking for certain codes and not finding them.

    They have been replaced. The spreadsheets have been updated. And yes, Ann Dowd achieved her top 5, thus kicking Nicole Kidman out of a nomination. And, Mirren is on the list for Actress. Juno Temple had 18 votes, but not one was a first choice.

    Here are the two updated URLs:

    I am sooooooo sorry for the confusion.


  86. Pete
    January 10, 2013

    Can you format the charts so that they can be easily printed. When I print on my imac, most of the info on the right and left is cut off. Last year the charts printed easily. Thanks.

    Zooming does not help.
