14th Annual Academy Awards Contest

Going into action last night, we had 13 years in the books. The standings were:

Bill 9-3-1
Susan 3-9-1

Here is a listing of the annual winner and the corresponding Best Picture winner.

2007: Susan / The Departed
2008: Bill / No Country for Old Men
2009: Tie / Slumdog Millionaire
2010: Susan / The Hurt Locker
2011: Bill / The King's Speech
2012: Susan / The Artist
2013: Bill / Argo
2014: Bill / 12 Years a Slave
2015: Bill / Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
2016: Bill / Spotlight
2017: Bill / Moonlight
2018: Bill / The Shape of Water
2019: Bill / Green Book

How does our competition work? It's simple really. The prior year's winner selects first. We alternate categories and cannot share the same pick. Best Picture is always the final category. Obviously, we have not seen all of the nominated films, so some picks are based solely upon reputation, media hype and our cycling class discussions every other Saturday. I'm embarrassed to say that, out of all the categories, I've only seen five nominated films. Those films are TBD, TBD, TBD, TBD and TBD.

So without further ado, here are our selections and the winner:
