It's a Tie!

It's a 3-way tie for the 15th Annual Oscar Prediction Contest! (top score: 90/100) Since we only have the $300 beans in our budget, we'll have to give each person $100 and bragging rights for the next year. You guys were on your game this year! The three 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, February 22nd, starting at 8:30 pm 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 15th 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!!

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 selected at random and others in the tie will receive $50 each.

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 beginning at 8:30 pm (EST).

You can check out the full list of nominations below, and the 87th Academy Awards will air on ABC on February 22, 2015.
