Oscars 2014: How to win your Academy Awards pool
When it comes to predicting Oscar-winners, you must vote with your head and not your heart, says CBC's Eli Glasner. CBC
After months of film festivals, movie screenings, campaigning and galas, the Academy Awards are finally here and movie fans worldwide are getting set for their annual Oscar pools.
When it comes to crafting your own winning ballot, however, successful Oscar prognosticators know that it's not about what audiences loved or your own personal favourites.
Instead, you must vote with your brain: namely, trying your best to figure out what has swayed the more than 6,000 voting members of the U.S. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — a group that is predominantly male, Caucasian and over the age of 50.
In the attached video, Eli Glasner gives you the inside track on this year's most likely Oscar winners and your best bets for a golden night voting for the stars.
