11 Least Deserving Best Picture Winners - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

We've got a slightly longer change-of-pace episode for this week's 11 Points Countdown episode. But it's one of my favorites to date.

This week I'm joined by two guests, Tyler Smith and David Bax of the website and podcast Battleship Pretension. And I try to match movie wits and acumen with them as we break down the results of the poll on the 11 least deserving winners of the Oscar for Best Picture.

As always, if you enjoy, please take a moment to subscribe to the YouTube channel. Thank you very, very much.
