Oscar Predict Contest!

02.20.2009

UPDATE: Only a few hours left to predict the Oscars...VOTE NOW!!

For anyone who is not yet aware, the Oscars will be announced this coming Sunday night, February 22nd, starting at 8pm EST, but until then, you get a chance to win a VIDEO IPOD courtesy of JoBlo.com (as well as 'bragging rights', of course) if you are the person who ends up predicting the Oscars the best. Yeah, a f*ckin' iPod, dude, so you'll finally be able to watch our JOBLO MOVIE SHOW in crystal clear resolution. This will be our 9th ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST on JoBlo.com, which is now running directly off our own Golden Schmoes website, automated and everything!

All you need to do is enter your name or username, as well as a valid email address (if you put a phony one, we won't be able to email you if you win), and then choose your picks from a list (just like the Golden Schmoes). The highest score that you can attain is 100, you can see the list of nominees and their point values below, along with the basic contest guidelines. Once you SUBMIT your picks, you will be able to PRINT them for yourself afterwards. Good luck!!

RULES OF THE CONTEST:

1) Your guesses should be for those movies/people who you think WILL win the Oscar, not who you think should win! A very clear difference.

2) Points will be allotted to each category as specified below. Whoever ends up with the most points....well, wins!

3) In case of a tie, the winner will be determined according to the one who picked correctly the top-most categories (i.e. if one person got BEST PICTURE correct and the other didn't, all the way down the categories). The winner will ultimately be chosen at the discretion of the accountants at JoBlo Media Inc. (that's "code" for ME!!)

4) If you haven't included a valid email address with your picks, we won't be able to email you if you win, hence, you automatically forfeit the prize to the next person on the list.

5) The contest begins on February 16th and ends on February 22nd at 6pm (EST). The Oscars will be handed out on February 22nd at 8pm (EST).
