The Yakademy Awards

Herds

The 87th Academy Awards wrapped up late Sunday evening with the biggest award of the night going to Birdman for Best Picture. Many of you expressed your opinions on our “Oscars - Live!” Peek on who the award should’ve gone to. That’s why we decided to create our very own Yakademy Awards.

Now that voting in Featured Peeks is an available feature, we opened it up to you — The Herd — and let YOU decide who deserved to win Best Picture. More than 87,000 votes overall came in for each nominated film. There were some underdogs (Whiplash and Boyhood) and some early front-runners (American Sniper and The Theory of Everything). In the end, the winning picture had over 20,000 votes.

The 2015 Yakademy Best Picture Award goes to……American Sniper!
