Buzzmeter, without the fuzzy math

Posted By on Fri, Oct 27, 2006 at 7:23 AM

If you allocate points based on each critics ranking (1=5, 2=4, 3=3, 4=2, 5=1) and give each critics picks equal weight (that is Tom O'Neil's rankings aren't weighted heavier than Richard Roeper's) then here's what you come up with.

Best Actor (under the BSR formula)

1.  Forest Whitaker, 2. Peter O'Toole, 3. Will Smith, 4. Leonardo DiCaprio, 5. Brad Pitt.

Best Actress

1.  Helen Mirren, 2. Penelope Cruz, 3. Kate Winslet, Judi Dench (tie), 5. Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep (tie)

Best Picture

1.  Babel, 2. The Queen, Dreamgirls (tie), 4. The Departed, 5. Flags of Our Fathers

Compare my list with the Buzzmeter.

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
