sound off on the Oscar race

RECORDS SET THIS SEASON
First Hispanic Director to win: Alfonso Cuarón
Oldest All Time Best Actress Shortlist
All Time Highest Nomination Average for Best Actress Shortlist

Youngest Actress to 3 Nominations: Jennifer Lawrence at 23

TRIVIA NOTES (BUT NOT REALLY RECORDS)
American Hustle now one of only 3 films to have been nominated in each acting category and win none
Gravity (7) now the highest winning statue count without Best Picture since Star Wars (6+1 special) but the all time record is still Cabaret (8)

NOMINATION TALLY
I was super accurate on Gravity (10/10), Philomena (4/4) and American Hustle (9/10)
but overestimated two key titles Captain Phillips (9/6) & 12 Years a Slave (12/9) while greatly underestimating Wolf of Wall Street (3/6)
