Oscar Predict Contest!

For those who have already made their picks, head on over to our OSCAR DISCUSSION THREAD for Oscar talk & more!

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 25th, 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.

This will be our 7th ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST on JoBlo.com, but for the first time ever, we will NOT be running it in our DISCUSSION FORUMS, but rather, on the Golden Schmoes website, automated and everything! Yeah, we're moving along with the times, kids (well, okay, nobody wanted to help us count the hundreds of results this year...doh!).

If you're looking for some help/advice, try the FANDANGO OSCARS section, which includes plenty of Oscar coverage, along with my own top picks, as part of the "experts picks" section (you see, my mom and dad were wrong all those years...I am an expert at something!).

Anyway, this new set-up should smooth everything out, as all you really 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 20th and ends on February 25th at at 6pm (EST). The Oscars will be handed out on February 25th at 8pm (EST).
