And with the Best Picture award, I win my office Oscar pool.  I never once doubted the sheer righteous biopic tastiness of Spotlight as Oscar bait.

Dang, had Spotlight had a real shot at one of the supporting acting categories, I probably would have picked it for Best Picture. I just didn't think it could take BP with only a writing win.

Spotlight is the first Best Picture winner since 1952's The Greatest Show On Earth to win only one other award.

And I end up with a score of 18/24.

Welp.

It did not help that you skipped several categories, as a percentage of those answered you did better than me.

I skipped categories I had seen basically no movies from mostly - and also the ones I know little about.
