The film starring Michael Fassbender and Academy Award Nominee Carey Mulligan beat presumed early frontrunner, “Drive.” Both films had never been in the Bottom Three or Two during the voting weeks. Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” is also the second runner-up in history, joining Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight,” to never be in the bottom three and lose the title. This is also the first time that the ACCA winner (“The Artist”) did not make the finale. “Shame” also has the smallest box office of any previous Idol winner.
Thanks to all our readership for a productive and amazing season of Academy Idol. Make sure to join us in November when we do it all over again.
