The Brutally Honest Oscar Voter explains her votes

I don't pay a lot of attention to awards shows, but I'm a sucker for historic Hollywood and Los Angeles, so this year's Oscars have me hoping that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood makes out like a bandit. I also really, really want Brad Pitt to thank Sayuri (the Pittie who played his faithful dog Brandy) in his acceptance speech.

One thing I do love about awards season is when we get a behind-the-scenes look at Oscars voting and the Brutally Honest Oscar Voters never fail to deliver. In this year's edition an actress who shares my adoration for Tarantino's love letter to Hollywood votes like crazy for this movie. One thing I do question is how someone in her position doesn't know the difference between sound editing and sound mixing, but other than that this is a fascinating look at how an Academy member puts a lot of thought into how they cast their votes.
