OPTIONAL BONUS TIE-BREAKER QUESTIONS!

01. I like this question but I prefer to give all the possible scenarios. I therefore forfeit this being used as a tie breaker.

If Cuaron or McQueen wins Director, they get a standing ovation.
If Blanchett, Adams, or Dench win Lead Actress...
If anyone except Bale wins Lead Actor...
If Leto or Abdi win Supporting Actor...
If Nyong'o or Squib win Supporting Actress...
If Deakins somehow wins Cinematography...
If Idina Menzel nails her performance of Let It Go...

02. Philip Seymour Hoffman

Considering that all of our short subject choices are the same, I'm curious if you reached your decisions the same way as me, by watching the trailers at Oscar.com and picking the ones that impressed you the most.

That's how I did it. It's a really potshot category, and these are the ones I liked best.
