Seeking to be less predictable, the BAFTAs this year decided to forego the longstanding 2-step nomination process with their famously fascinating long list that always preceded the final short list. Unpredictable means more room for unexpected surprises but it’s also less transparent. The Oscars and BAFTAs are both flying blind this year. You can achieve the same exciting sensation in your car if you fog up the windshield, drain your brake fluid, then take down all the road signs and guardrails on the highway. Who knows what unpredictable accidents might happen! Buckle up! The new ballot procedure throws all our prediction models into disarray as well. Since the voting is so radically different this year, all the trusty historical precedents have been thrown out the window.
