Oh, c'mon. The Blind Side was definitely worse. Incredibly Close and Unbelievably Boring or whatever that thing was called was also terrible (both starring Sandra Bullock, I might add).

I am predicting a lock out for Mad Max: Fury Road as well. My theory (probably flawed) is that Mad Max had love enough to gain a swag of technical categories. But not the numbers necessary when the entire Academy votes leaving it empty handed at the end of the night.

For some reason, I assumed it won at least one tech award.
