In the comments field to his post about the awards, Jeff Wells says the D.C. association is more of a bellwether to Academy tastes than similar associations in L.A. and N.Y. Maybe, but it's still not much of a bellwether. Here are D.C.'s best picture winners over the last nine years:

  • “Up in the Air”
  • “Slumdog Millionaire” *
  • “No Country for Old Men” *
  • “United 93”
  • “Munich”
  • “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”
  • “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” *
  • “Road to Perdition”

In terms of best picture, only three matches (*). It's still a wide-open field, kids.
