Good picks guys! I’m seeing a lot of movies left that feel more like nominees than having it in them to go all the way.

Emilia Perez

This has worse reviews than Sing Sing and Anora with only 70 MC to their 84 and 89, but having just found out it's a musical (I missed that in my original description) combined with the crime elements, I'll take a chance that it has the crazy experience factor like EEAAO.

I have decided to add an extra round to this pool since it had less picks due to Flava'd gambit, and there would've been some quality picks going undrafted.

My pick is Eden. I may feel silly betting on both Zemeckis and Howard, but it is Round 5.

I was going to pick Eden but thought a film with so many hotties (Sydney Sweeney, Ana De Armas and Vanessa Kirby) couldn't possibly win BP :funny:
