Mar. 4, 2014by: JoBlo

It's a Tie!

For the first time ever we have a 4-way tie in the 14th Annual Oscar Prediction Contest! Unfortunately, that means we'll have to subdivide the prize, but it'll still be a nice chunk of change. You guys were just too damn good this year! The four winners should check their e-mail and make sure to respond back within 48 hours or forfeit your winnings.

To see how YOU did in the grand scheme of things, click HERE! And, that's a wrap for this year's contest. Congrats to the winners and we'll see you all next year!

For anyone who is not yet aware, the Oscars will be announced this coming Sunday night, March 2nd, starting at 8pm EST, but until then, you get a chance to win $300 bucks courtesy of JoBlo.com (as well as 'bragging rights', of course) if you are the person who ends up predicting the Oscars the best. This will be our 14th ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST on JoBlo.com, which is now running directly on the Golden Schmoes section of our website.

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 - we don't do anything else with 'em), and then choose your picks from a list. 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!! PS: If you haven't done so, make sure to vote for the Golden Schmoes afterwards, we hand those winners out this Friday!


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 24th and ends on March 2nd at 6pm (EST). The Oscars will be handed out on March 2nd at 8pm (EST).
