SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 20, 2019 – Atom Tickets, the first-of-its-kind movie ticketing app, recently polled movie fans about which films, artists, and song should take top honors at this year’s Oscars. In the annual survey, A Star is Born came out on top but the runners-up were very close (No. 2 Bohemian Rhapsody was less than half a percentage point behind and No. 3 Black Panther was a little more than three percentage points behind). When it comes to snubs, movie fans cited Bradley Cooper’s omission from the “Best Director” category for A Star Is Born as the “Biggest Snub” of the Oscars nominations.
Overall movie fan favorites are listed below by category:
· Best Picture – A Star Is Born
· Best Director – Alfonso Cuarón, Roma
· Best Lead Actor – Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
· Best Lead Actress – Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born
· Best Supporting Actor – Mahershala Ali, Green Book
· Best Supporting Actress – Regina King, If Beale Street Could Talk
· Best Original Song – “Shallow,” A Star Is Born
· Best Animated Feature – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
· Biggest Snub – Bradley Cooper, Best Director for A Star Is Born
In comparison, when reviewing the poll respondents by age, millennial movie fans selected Black Panther as Best Picture followed narrowly by A Star Is Born. Millennial movie fans also voted John Krasinski’s omission from the “Best Director” category for his film A Quiet Place as the biggest snub.
