Reduced Democratic turnout in TX's governor's primary show that Dems are not as motivated to vote for Davis as some think. Her numbers are down from 2010's primary--100,000 LESS people voted for her than the 2010 Dem gubernatorial candidate.
She clearly has problems with Hispanics:

NOT a technical award. I'm so tired of hearing this argument. The Academy clearly thought this was the BP of the year. It wasn't even close.

Titanic--in a landslide--it would win its 11 against any field (except Schindler's List maybe)
I like Gladiator on that list best, but I wouldn't vote for it over Titanic--that film was a game changer in so many ways.
Titanic is in a category along with GWTW, West Side Story, Ben-Hur, and LOTR...

Entertainment Weekly had it ranked as one of the worst Bond movies ever made behind duds like Moonraker, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, A View to a Kill, and License to Kill....

Then why did it only win 3 of its 9 nominations? It lost Actor, Supporting Actor, Director, Costume, Prod Design, and Editing.

Doesn't matter--the whole point was that the subject matter hasn't been treated, when, in reality, it has.
