If The indieWIRE Critics Poll Picked The Oscars

If The indieWIRE Critics Poll Picked The Oscars

The 2010 indieWIRE Critics Poll in all its glory is now complete and online for your pleasure. Though you could go ahead and figure this out yourself, I did you the geeky service of going through and compiling what the results would look like if the categories were Academy Award-style. It’s a dreamy list. And while some categories look to have near zero crossover with Oscar, strangely enough best actor and best supporting actor here could end up going 4 out of 5.
