 The 9th Annual Predict The Oscars!

This page is your link to Oscar information.  This year's awards will again be covered by ABC, live from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.  It seems to me that as I expected, the Writers Guild strike last year had some affect on the number of quality films released this year.  This year's votes and nominations are focused on a small number of films and I expect that will result in fewer viewers again this year.  I hope I'm wrong because this has clearly been a trend over the last number of years but I guess we'll know for sure tomorrow.

 

Predict The Oscars Contest Information

Our Oscar contest is weighted so people who don't “live” the movies have a fighting chance to win.  Almost one third of the points are awarded to the top four categories and based on history, most of the films nominated for these will still be at the theatres in January.  You can read the full rules for the game by following the link and the values assigned by award are shown below.  

There have been no changed to the point values or the tie breaker method this year.  Along with your predictions you will enter the title of the film you think will win the most awards and the number it will win in the Academy Awards.  The person who correctly picks the film and is closest to the number of awards (over or under) will be declared the winner.  If multiple people with the highest point score also tie on the tie breaker question the winner will be selected by random drawing.

Here’s the weighting for each award:
