Oscar Predict Contest!

02.23.2005

PREDICT THE OSCARS!!!

Every year, we try to have as much fun as we can with the Oscars (a live Oscar night chat session, contests, goofy picture captions, etc...) and this year is no different. For anyone who is not yet aware, the Oscars will be announced this coming Sunday night, February 27th, starting at 8pm EST.

With that in mind, we have now begun our 5TH ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST in which anyone could attempt to predict the winners and finish atop the list of the greatest movie nerds on this site. We score out of 100 points and my own personal abysmal record has been 39, 61, 55 and 72 in the past four years (mind you, last year was a joke, as most everyone seemed to score over 80-90 with LOTR sweeping and all). See the previous years' list of scores here: 2003 / 2002 / 2001 / 2000. Please remember that your picks should be for who you think WILL win, not who you think SHOULD win. Read all of the basic contest guidelines here and enter now! Here's a reminder of the nominees and their point values. Good luck!!
