Success Rates

I calculate success rates by taking the total number of winners that each person had seen before voting and dividing that by the number of winners they actually voted for. For example, if you voted in 24 categories, had seen 21 of those eventual winners before voting, and had 7 of your picks go on to win, your success rate was 33% (7/21).

Thanks for all the work pixote !

Oscar Isaac losing to Mark Rylance... I really don't get the praise for that performance. He has a funny line he repeats three times, big whoop.

And Ennio Morricone almost lost ! Gasp !

I have not heard of The Overnighters anywhere other than here, and it beat both Amy and The Look of Silence ? Impressive.

That's the lowest turnout ever, breaking the previous record low set last year (40 voters), which in turn broke the record from the year before (50 voters).

Let's halt this trend next year!

Sad for the shut-outs for It Follows, Blind, Tangerine and Spy, all top-10 films for me last year, but I wasn't necessarily expecting a lot of wins there. Very pleasantly surprised by Stewart getting the win, also The Overnighters.

Looks like I can absolve myself for not seeing Son of Saul in time for the vote as the extra bit of weighting certainly wouldn't have given Blind the necessary bump in Debut.

65.2% ? I suppose I have no choice but to embrace my mainstream years now, no matter how much scuffing that will cause. Goodbye obscure movies, it was fun while it lasted.

I like to think that my result is an analogy for the "independent moderate voter." At exactly 50%, and the closest to the mean, it looks like I'm straight down the road. But really that is just hiding the mathematical reality that I'm an aggregate of extreme positions on either side.
