Brutally Honest Oscar Ballot No. 6: BIRDMAN "genius on many levels," "loved" GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and Cumberbatch http://t.co/VHbiLNfOUU— Scott Feinberg (@ScottFeinberg) February 22, 2015
OK, this is from a female in the writers branch of the Academy who has WON an Oscar. Look through the list of previous screenwriters/filmmakers, and it really cuts the list down. So this is probably either Sofia Coppola or Diablo Cody (or some random winner from the 80s/90s who's still alive).
- thought birdman was genius and gave their love to the film, as well as michael keaton and the script (though director to linklater - methinks another split is gonna happen tomorrow)
- voted for the same in the other categories, pretty much all the locks: Julianne moore, jk simmons, patricia arquette
- gave love to selma, especially a film directed by a woman
- actually SAW all animated and documentary features, and gave love to big hero 6
- tech awards split up between unbroken, budapest and guardians
