As I make my predictions for who with win and who won’t in office pools, in social media forums, at the party, and privately during the Oscars’ telecast, I am always conscious of three factors in Oscar prediction that make it more a game of chance than an intellectual pursuit. The first challenge is that I have my favored and loathed among the nominations, which influences my guesses. Second, although the actual quality of one film above the other requires comparing apples to oranges, the nominees and the winners reflect only the majority opinion of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences members. The third challenge to predicting the winners is more complicated.
