We unveil our quarter-finalist films for Academy Idol XII! This round will be based on the best performance in a film, and weighing it against the other top performers of each film. With the competition moving towards its conclusion, let’s drop our fifth place film and open voting on the final four.

Academy Idol XII Round 9 Results

Let’s find out who our top three finishers were this round. With only two votes per voter, support was spread thin. Yet we had some of our highest levels of individual ballots cast in the round. This left us with a strong top three that continues to push for the Academy Idol XII championship. Our top three films are:

  • A Star Is Born” (8th Top 3 Finish)
  • The Favourite” (9th  Top 3 Finish, 7 Wins)
  • Roma” (5th Top 3 Finish)

One film stood out above the rest and continues its dominance in the competition. “The Favourite” took control of the round and appeared on more than eighty-five percent of the ballots cast. This could be a sign of things to come but so far Yorgos Lanthimos’ film continues to outpace the others with strong support.

Sadly, we also have to send home a film. Our bottom two films this week are:

  • Hereditary” (4th Bottom Finish)
  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” (3rd Bottom Finish)

Each of the genre films has done well to stay alive in the competition. However, one simply must go home. The eliminated film from the round was “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The animated feature became a fan-favorite of Awards Circuit readers, earning a Best Picture nomination with ACCA. However, the comic book adaptation could not outlast “Hereditary.”
