    It's not weird anyway for 4 films with less than 80 to make it in a field of 9. In fact, it already happened recently in 2016: Lion, Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Hidden Figures. Another good example is 2004, where 4 films in the top 6 had less than 80 on metacritic: The Aviator, Finding Neverland, Ray, Hotel Rwanda (don't officially know about that last one, but statistically it was 6th and surely would have been a nominee in an expanded lineup).
    Fences had a 79 and 2004 was almost 15 years ago. Still not buying that these four films would all get in this year.

    Don't you mean "the best"? I mean, come on, Vice is not going to end up lower than a 70 at MC, let's be real. Its precursor run so far has been a LOT more promising than a few snarky tweets from Film Twitter

    She said films below 80, Fences is below 80.

    Anyway, 2014 had 3 films below 80 in a field of 8; don’t remember which film was predicted to be 9th that year.

    Baffling. Hollywood hasn't learned.

    A 79 is basically 80 and I'm not expecting Vice to get that high.

    Foxcatcher would have been 9th.

    Now, I wonder if this is a potential 2009 breakdown with the AFI+NBR+BFCA stat (When it was over the place), considering films which looked as prior "outsiders" like Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Rich Asians, Eighth Grade or Leave No Trace (This last one mostly by critics) can have a new bounce in the second stage of the race (With PGA as the peak).

    At least the 2015 line-up was pretty solid, no real terrible films in that line-up. The fact Beale Street might miss out to... Bohemian Rhapsody, is just discouraging.
