Thursday morning was a wonderful and terrible morning for Hollywood. Some filmmakers got the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of hearing their names called as Oscar nominees (or, if you're Meryl Streep, 19-times-in-a-lifetime). Others were left empty-handed.
The math nailed this one. Among the eight nominees, seven were in my top seven. That is, all seven movies with likelihoods above 70 percent were in fact nominated for best picture.
