Love this chit chat with Tom O’Neil and Dave Karger, the latter whom acts very humble considering how TOLDJA he could be about the King’s Speech. He doesn’t do that – he acts very nice about it all. He predicts only five movies for Best Pic, however, based on an incorrect assumption about the how the counting is going to go. In Steve Pond’s article, if a film gets 455 (or so, magic number time) it is automatically a nominee. But any film that gets over 20% of the total vote triggers the surplus rule. Then you move to round two. At that point, films need around 50 or 60 number one votes to make it to the second round. After that, you want your movie to have more number 1s plus maybe number 2s and 3s. A lot of people are getting this wrong – they think it has to be number ones all the way through – it doesn’t. Only in round one. I am double checking with Steve but that is my understanding.
