BOPMadness 2011 Results

Interesting!  Just like last year, we got five out of the Big Six correct.   This year, we went with Geoffrey Rush as Supporting Actor for The King’s Speech…but just barely.  We got an 85% score on The Big Six…not bad.

On The Incredibly Difficult Maven Section, we got the following correct:

  • Adapted Screenplay: The Social Network 
  • Original Screenplay: The King’s Speech
  • Sound Mixing (we get half on that…Inception, the winner, and The King’s Speech were in a tie in our polling)
  • Sound Editing: Inception
  • Song: Toy Story 3 (We Belong Together)
  • Costume (half: we had Alice in Wonderland, the winner, tied with The King’s Speech)
  • Makeup: (half…we had The Way Back tied with The Wolfman, which won)
  • Live Action Short (one third…we had Na Wewe and Wish 143 tied with God of Love, the winner)
  • Animated Feature: Toy Story 3

We missed on:

  • Foreign Language Film (we picked Incendies instead of In a Better World…we were really wrong on that one)
  • Art Direction (we picked The King’s Speech over Alice in Wonderland)
  • Cinematography (we picked Black Swan over Inception)
  • Score (we picked The King’s Speech over The Social Network)
  • Documentary Feature (we picked Restrepo over Inside Job)
  • Documentary Short (we picked The Warriors of Quigang over Strangers No More)
  • Editing (we picked The King’s Speech over The Social Network)
  • Animated Short (we picked The Gruffalo over The Lost Thing)
  • Visual Effects (we had a tie between Alice and Harry Potter over Inception…just barely)

We got 85% on the Big Six, 70% on The Incredibly Difficult Maven Section, and 75% overall…not too bad.

Thanks to everyone who played!

As for me personally: I missed two out of The Big Six, and that’s somewhat unusual for me.  The ones that won were my second choices, so I end up with 33 out of a possible 35: 94%.

I got a 62 on The Incredibly Difficult Maven Section.  There were some I got really wrong.  That’s out of 85: 73%.
