How the Best Picture voting works.
Oscars Best Picture Ballot: Don't Believe the Schmucks | TheWrap.com
The Oscar Best Picture Ballot, which is counted by PricewaterhouseCoopers using the preferential process, lists the 10 nominees and asks voters to rank them one through 10.
The accountants sort the ballots into stacks based on the film ranked first on each ballot. If one film doesn't have more than 50% of the vote, the nominee with the fewest number-one votes is eliminated, and its votes go to the film ranked second on each of its ballots.
This process continues, with the weakest remaining competitor eliminated and its ballots redistributed, until one film has more than 50 percent. The result will be the one film with the truest consensus support.
