I'm watching Shape of Water as I type this and I'm wondering how the hell did this stinker win Best Picture?

Apart from best production design and possibly best original score (I'd still give that one to PHANTOM THREAD or DUNKIRK), it really didn't deserve anything. Still okay with Guillermo getting director though as it was such a big middle finger to the studio system.

Unlike all the other Oscar categories, Best Picture uses ranked, instant runoff voting to pick a winner. In theory, Shape of Water could have won without getting any first place votes.

Yeah, that system is really weird. I wonder how many of the voters vote dishonestly trying to rig it.
