how many people on here realize that only a handful of people get to pick the oscar winners like a day before?

the people who pick the oscars are hand given the choices by representative of the studios of hollywood,the movies that win are in some way connected to Warner brothers,etc...if you do an independent film unless its like titanic you don't stand a chance,so here we have hollywood,who is going to go to the oscar awards show?actors from the studios whose movies were made by the power 6 studios,so the oscars do not represent the best film of the year it represents the most powerful studio of that time! "king's speech"the entire movie was about a man who would be king who can't speak without stuttering,bets actor?maybe,but so were the leading actors in "fighter' drama ?very little,"fighter" all drama,best period piece?definitely! the movie conviction starring swank,that was a movie worthy of an oscar so why?

Update:

    Well, you're not quite right. It is true only a few people get to vote - you don't get to - only members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Membership in the Academy normally fluctuates between 6,000 and 6,500 voting members. They get mailed nomination ballots around December and have about two weeks to nominate for Awards. The secret ballots must be returned directly to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm in charge of processing the votes.

    PricewaterhouseCoopers tabulates the votes and the final list of nominees is announced in January.

    Then another round of secret voting takes place, with members of the Academy only able to vote on the final nominees listed in each category - actors for actors, directors for directors etc... Those ballots must be returned to PricewaterhouseCoopers before the specified deadline. After the ballots are tabulated, only two partners of PricewaterhouseCoopers will know the results until the envelopes are opened on stage during the Academy Awards presentation. Actors who are members of the Academy vote for their peers and that's who wins, it isn't determined by who the most powerful studio is - the days of studio power are long past.

    Edit: Sorry to shoot down your pet conspiracy theory, but no, the studio as an entity cannot be a member, Membership is only open to individuals on an invitation basis. Read this for the types of folks who are members: http://www.playbill.com/playblog/2010/06/latest-ac...

    Yeah.

    I also hear only a FEW people get to pick the Playboy Playmate of the Month, the Car of the Year, the NBA MVP, the Nobel Peace Prize, Miss America and the winner of Top Chef.

    Who freaking cares?

    Is this some sort of evil conspiracy.
